COURSE DESCRIPTION

Over the past 20 years huge advances have been made in equine dentistry and new sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic techniques aiming at dental disease prevention and dental sparing have been published.  This highly practical course is aimed at practitioners with a working knowledge in equine dentistry who want to deepen their understanding and especially their practical skills on diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. 

To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have first taken part in the corresponding online Lecture Series ‘Beyond Basics: Modern Diagnostic & Therapeutic Techniques in Equine Dentistry':

  • If you have not yet purchased the corresponding Lecture Series associated with the On-Location Portion, please purchase the Lecture Series as an ‘Extra’ during the registration process at a 10% discount.
  • If you have already purchased the Lecture Series independently of the On-Location Portion, please proceed to register without adding the Lecture Series as an ‘Extra’ during the registration process.

The online Lecture Series addresses the following hot topics via well-illustrated, case-discussions providing a platform for the panel of speakers to share pitfalls, erroneous clinical conclusions and useful tips and tricks:

  • Review of Equine Dental Anatomy
  • Oral Examination Techniques
  • Dental Radiography
  • Motorized & Manual Rasping
  • Diagnosis & Management of Periodontal Disease
  • Maintaining Occlusal Surfaces – Incisors & Cheek Teeth 
  • Pain Management in Dentistry
  • Malocclusions – Diagnostic & Therapeutic Options
  • Specific Dentistry in the Juvenile & Geriatric Horse
  • Identifying & Managing Fractured Teeth
  • Oral Dental Extractions – Decision Making & Techniques
  • Dealing with Infundibular & Peripheral Caries

Day 1 starts at 15:00h with 3 hours of interactive Case-Discussions, Q&A which will give attendees the unique opportunity to apply what they have learned during Lecture Series in discussion with the world-renowned specialists.  This will then be followed by the obligatory Wine & Cheese Reception allowing for attendees to socialise with colleagues and the speakers/instructors.

On the second day, 7 hours of practical sessions will provide an intimate environment for attendees to develop their practical skills on equine specimens in true small groups (2-3 vets per specimen) at the following stations:

  • Oral Imaging – Radiographic Techniques
  • Use of Motorized Equipment
  • Periodontal Treatment Techniques
  • Local Anesthetic Techniques (incl. TMJ)
  • Occlusal Restoration Techniques
  • Oral Dental Extraction Techniques

The course fee includes coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, lunch and a certificate of attendance. To participate in the On-Location Case-Discussions & Practical Sessions, attendees are required to have first taken part in the Lecture Series (purchased as an ‘Extra’ when registering for the On-Location Case-Discussions & Practical Sessions).  Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available due to the highly practical nature of this course.

“A good theoretical & practical course.”

Sanne Journee, Paardengebit Dierenarts, Friesland, The Netherlands - Advanced Diagnostic & Therapeutic Techniques in Equine Dentistry course

“A well organized approach to proper equine dentistry for every practitioner. This course will prepare a new graduate and experienced practitioners.”

Scott Wilson, CA - Essentials of Equine Dentistry course

“On the high-end of course but well worth the expense. The title was misleading, this course helped increase my knowledge and scope of veterinary dentistry. I do not believe this was "Basic Dentistry" content, it was better.”

Amanda Flessner, CA - Essentials of Equine Dentistry course
