Fri 18 Jan - Sat 19 Jan 2019 – A 2-Day Practical Boutique Course (max. 18 vets)

Please be aware that there are only a limited number of BEVA spaces available.

This course is now fully booked for the practical sessions. You are still able to attend 'lectures only'.

This 2-day highly practical course was devised for advanced practitioners and surgeons with a good working knowledge/experience in equine dentistry, specifically with dental extractions.  The specialists will provide an overview on up-to-date surgical dental extraction techniques in horses, including minimally invasive repulsion (MIR) and minimally invasive transbuccal extraction (MTE) techniques.  During the 7 hours of wetlabs in true small groups (2-3 vets per specimen) attendees will be able to further develop their surgical skills and train the MIR/MTE techniques under the close supervision of the world-renowned specialists.

Between both days the 9 hours of practical sessions will provide an intimate environment for attendees to develop their surgical skills on equine specimens in true small groups (2-3 vets per specimen; attendee-to-instructor ratio of 4-6/1) at the following stations:

  • Surgical Anatomy of the Head – Sinuses Anatomy, Surgical Approaches, Facial Anatomy & Nerve Blocks            
  • Minimally Invasive Trephination & Repulsion (MITR)    
  • Minimally Invasive Transbuccal Extraction (MTE)
  • Paranasal Sinuses – Surgical Techniques 
  • Dental Segmentation Techniques
  • Diagnostic Imaging Case-Discussions    

The course fee includes lunches, coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, extensive course notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions).  On the evening of the first day all attendees are invited to attend the wine & cheese reception.  Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available.

“Highly practical with a great theoretic base. Even though I already was quite familiar with the techniques presented, I really learned some new details and got some insights for daily use.”

Nina Lundgren, Svenska Hasttandvarden AB, Sweden - Oral Dental Extraction course, Denmark

“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, Oakdale Veterinary Center, California - Essentials of Equine Dentistry course, California

“Well chosen lectures, complete view over basic dentistry, a relatively new science. I would like to learn more about x-ray diagnostic.”
