COVID-19 Update
We have firm plans to hold all advertised courses and events as announced on our website, provided that restrictions will have been lifted by then. We would like to reassure you that if you register for one of our upcoming courses, you will or can opt to receive a full refund if the course/event should have to be postponed or cancelled due to restrictions associated with Covid-19. We will of course continue to closely monitor developments and government advice, as well as adhering to routine social distancing and anti-viral procedures on the courses.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Oral extraction techniques have been shown to cause much fewer post-interventional complications in horses compared to surgical extraction techniques.  Performing oral dental extractions should however not be taken lightly as complications like dental fractures, retained root tips, collateral damage etc. can easily occur and require in-depth anatomical knowledge, good technical skills and clinical versatility to resolve.  This 2-day highly practical boutique course (max. 24 attendees) is aimed at practitioners with a good working knowledge in equine dentistry who want to learn about various oral dental extraction techniques, how to apply them clinically and managing arising complications.  The panel of internationally renowned specialists will be sharing technical tips and tricks and pearls of wisdom that they have accumulated over the many years of working in equine dental practice.

Between both afternoons the 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 Examination & Endoscopy
  • Diagnostic Imaging – Radiography etc.
  • Local Anesthetic Techniques (incl. TMJ)
  • Incisor & Canine Extractions      
  • Oral Extraction Techniques for Cheek Teeth I     
  • Oral Extraction Techniques for Cheek Teeth II

The course fee includes lunches, coffee/tea breaks, 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 and 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 - 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
