This veterinary thought exchange online tutored course is an overall look at dental diseases and treatments in both dogs and cats.

Dental disease is one of the most commonly encountered problems in small animal practice. This course will take you through oral assessment, radiography technique and pathology, extraction techniques and specific problems in cats and dogs. It will provide you with the most up to date information in this area, supported by a live Q and A session where you can ask the tutor questions about your trickier cases.

The course is run by Ingrid Tundo (EVDC Specialist in Dentistry). The course runs over a seven-week period and takes around 9 hours to complete. The course is delivered via video webinars and supplemented with discussion forums and live chats with the course tutor.

Access to this course is for 12 months. If you sign up to the course after the live session has run, you will still be able to access the recordings from the live session. The discussion forum will be monitored by Ingrid for the duration of the course only.
