Dental Wet Lab for Veterinarians

This wet lab is limited to 10 registrants.
This course is designed to teach veterinarians techniques to simplify extraction of the canine teeth, maxillary fourth premolar and mandibular first molar. These techniques should result in improved clinical outcome and reduced surgical time. Basic interpretation of dental radiographs will also be covered with the goal to aid the veterinarian in recognizing periodontal disease, endodontic disease, tooth resorption and neoplasia.

Dental Wet Lab for Veterinary Technicians & Assistants

This wet lab is limited to 16 registrants.
Dental radiographs can be frustrating, time consuming, and overwhelming, but after today, one will be fully confident in positioning for Picture-Perfect Radiographs, with minimal to no retakes.  A one hour lecture over positioning and troubleshoot will be followed by a hands on lab.

IVMA Plating Wet Lab for Veterinarians

This wet lab is limited to 16 registrants.
This course is designed to give the veterinarian a solid foundation in fracture repair in companion animals. Lectures will be followed by laboratory exercises using plastic bone models and cadavers to perform implant application. A variety of fracture stabilization techniques will be discussed, including pin and wire, and bone plating. The Everost bone plating system are simple to use. Cases examples will be used to demonstrate successful clinical application of these techniques using the Everost plating system.
