Course Description
Equine Dental Diagnostics Upgrade is a course designed to hone a practitioner’s oral examination and dental radiographs skills utilizing the newest technology. This course will focus on arming veterinarians with a deeper understanding of oral and dental anatomy, common pathology, examination techniques, radiographic acquisition, and radiographic interpretation.  Oral examination will be taught with the newest equipment for oral and dental endoscopy. Both intraoral and extraoral radiographic techniques will be taught using the most state-of-the-art imaging systems.  After performing oral exams and acquiring radiographs, radiographic interpretation and treatment will be discussed and practiced in small groups to maximize learning. Veterinarians will leave the course with the knowledge to either start or build their dental practice.

Course Purpose:

Goals for this meeting will be to provide equine veterinarians instruction and education in the following topics:

  • Performing in-depth oral examination utilizing an oroscope
  • Recognizing common dental pathology
  • Acquisition of intraoral and extraoral dental radiographs
  • Dental radiograph interpretation and treatment planning

The overall goal of this meeting is for private practitioners to explore the latest in dental diagnostic technology and leave the meeting feeling empowered to perform high quality oral examinations and acquire diagnostic dental radiographs that they can accurately interpret to provide a treatment plan.
