The day revolves around the treatment of live patients with a balance of Veterinary Surgeons and highly experienced Equine Dental Technicians leading the teaching. Small group practicals will allow all delegates to perform full dental treatments under the guidance of the course tutors. This course is aimed at practitioners looking to improve their knowledge and practical skills in the use of motorised dental equipment for routine rasping.
