The course is designed for newly qualified Vets, it is part of our Fundamentals programme. It would also be suitable for those who want to refresh their knowledge.

book iconAbout the Course

This one-day course caters for recently graduated vets and comprises pre-learning lectures, live-horse practical’s and panel discussions with some of the leading clinicians in the field of equine dentistry.  

The lectures cover clinical anatomy, physiology, and routine disorders of equine cheek teeth. The small group practical classes will allow delegates to be guided in the practice of thorough oral examination and routine floating of teeth with modern equipment.  There will be a range of dental equipment available to use, and on display for purchase from our sponsors. However, delegates are encouraged to bring their own equipment for use in the practical’s and be guided in their use by the tutors.
