About the course

18 NOV 2017 08:45 - 19 NOV 2017 17:30

This is a 2 day course, consisting of two half days of lectures and two half days of practical sessions. 

This course will cater for vets who do not have great expertise in the field of equine dentistry and is aimed at introducing them to the majority of equine disorders encountered in general practice. The lectures will cover clinical anatomy, physiology, developmental and acquired abnormalities of incisors and cheek teeth, dental infections using manual and motorised dental equipment, dental examination techniques, routine prophylactic dental care and a brief overview of dental surgical procedures. 

The small group practical classes will deal with oral examination/routine floating techniques with emphasis on the role of the general practitioner rather than the specialist. The practical sessions have been well received over past courses and provide a unique opportunity to develop examination and rasping skills. 

The course provides a good chance for delegates to handle and discuss the use of a range of dental equipment. In addition to this sponsors will be present at the lecture venue, allowing delegates who wish to purchase equipment for their practices to do so with some guidance from the course lecturers. 

The course fee includes the course dinner on Saturday 18th November. (Please note accommodation is not included in the registration fee).
