Is this course for me?

If you are comfortable with equine dental diagnostics, but extraction of premolar and molar teeth makes you nervous, or perhaps you avoid it altogether – this online course is for you! Participants will learn about treatment planning based upon applied equine dental anatomy and critical analysis of oral examination and imaging findings. Participants will become well versed in the equipment and techniques required to safely and efficiently extract equine teeth. This affordable and convenient online course is the pre-requisite content for the intensive hands-on training course. After satisfactory completion, participants will be fully prepared to master techniques in the hands-on training course in our state-of-the-future CE facility here at CSU (view the October 28-29 in-person course here).
