A two-day series of lectures and practical sessions aiming to cover the essentials of feline dentistry. Feline dentistry poses certain unique problems and pathologies. Dedicated courses are rare, especially with the availability of specimens to practise techniques.
A dedicated wet-lab, complete with modern dental units and radiography (from iM3), video displays and superb lecture facilities.
Numbers will be limited to ensure 1:1 training, your own specimens and minimal sharing of equipment.
Skulls will be used for radiographic positioning before perfecting your dental techniques in the wet-lab.
