About the course

The British Veterinary Dental Association and The British Veterinary Nursing Association have joined forces to offer a bite sized course worth 9 hours of CPD!

The programme, proudly supported by Pedigree & Whiskas and our media supporter, VN Times aims to provide nurses with the knowledge and skills to deliver effective oral care clinics, drive awareness of oral health and identify pets that are in need of oral care attention.

To enrol and gain the Certificate you will need to be an RVN and complete all 4 modules of the online course.  This includes a series of webinars, instructional videos, short tasks and a final MCQ assessment paper.

Candidates will need to achieve a minimum of 80% in the final assessment, plus complete all of the short tasks in order to achieve the Oral Care Nurse Certificate.

Delegates will gain knowledge and understanding on:

  • Dental and Oral Anatomy
  • Periodontal Disease and dental treatment options
