COURSE DESCRIPTION

Nowadays a great percentage of equine dental extractions are performed non-surgically but should never be taken lightly as complications like dental fractures, retained root tips, collateral damage etc. easily occur.  Over the past 20 years minimally-invasive surgical techniques have been developed and have led to a significant reduction of morbidity and mortality in horses. 

This highly practical boutique course (max. 18 attendees) was devised for advanced practitioners with surgical experience and surgeons with a good working knowledge/experience in equine dentistry, specifically with dental extractions.

To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have first worked through the  corresponding online Lecture Series An Introduction to Advanced Surgical Dental Extraction Techniques (incl. MITR, MTE & Segmentation)':

  • If you have already purchased the Lecture Series independently of the On-Location Portion, please contact the office on office@vetpd.com for a voucher code to reduce the price accordingly.

The panel of internationally renowned specialists will provide an overview on up-to-date, minimally-invasive surgical dental extraction techniques in horses, including minimally-invasive trephination & repulsion (MITR), minimally-invasive transbuccal extraction (MTE) and dental segmentation.  They will furthermore be sharing technical tips and tricks and pearls of wisdom that they have accumulated over the many years of performing equine dental surgery.

Speaker Title Duration
Hubert Simhofer Surgical Anatomy of the Head 40 min
Neil Townsend Modern Extraction Techniques 55 min
Neil Townsend Minimally Invasive Transbuccal Extraction (MTE) 40 min
Hubert Simhofer Minimally Invasive Trephination & Repulsion (MITR) 40 min

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, 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 worked through the Lecture Series (included in the price).  Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available due to the highly practical nature of this course.

“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 - Equine Oral Dental Extraction Techniques course

“Great overview of normal anatomy and pathology, radiograph technique and extraction techniques.”

Scott Morley, United States - Equine Oral Dental Extraction Techniques 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
