Practical Dentistry - the first steps

21 Nov 2020 09:00 - 22 Nov 2020 17:00

Rossdales Equine Hospital and Diagnostic Centre,


We plan to hold all advertised courses scheduled between September and December 2020, provided they can fully comply with local Covid-19 guidelines. This will mean that a series of protective measures will be put in place; all attendees will be notified of these measures before attending the course.

We would like to reassure you, if we need to cancel or postpone one of our upcoming courses for any reason you will be entitled to a full refund. Please see further information in our terms and conditions below.

people iconWho is the course for?

This course caters for recently graduated vets, or those returning to equine practice, with limited experience in modern equine dentistry.

About the Course

The two-day course comprises lectures, live-horse practicals and panel discussions with some of the leading clinicians in the field of equine dentistry. 

The lectures will cover clinical anatomy, physiology, and developmental and acquired disease of incisors, canines, cheek teeth and periodontal tissues. The small group practical classes will allow delegates to be guided in the practice of thorough oral examination and routine floating of teeth with both hand rasps and motorised 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 practicals and be guided in their use by the tutors.  

There will be the opportunity for delegates to attend a course meal on Saturday 21st November (Please note: the delegate meal and accommodation are not included in the registration fee).
