Marmot Foundation for Veterinary Education's first continuing education offering of 2016 is the inauguration of the Specialist in Practice Series. This three-day continuing education event includes expert-taught lectures and laboratories in small animal dentistry sponsored by Midmark. You will experience building diverse knowledge and manual skills in companion animal dentistry. Participants will develop: More efficiency, efficacy, safety, and confidence in providing periodontal care, including local anesthesia techniques for dental procedures Proficiency in generating diagnostic dental radiographs Knowledge in getting yourself and your practice equipped to deliver therapy and services Recognition of how professional oral health care relates to the overall optimal health of veterinary patients, and how to communicate that relationship to clients Course Content: You will recieve a comprehensive review of dental anatomy, dental charting schemes, digital dental radiography, dental analgesia (via local nerve blocks), and current techniques in perioceutic treatments for dogs and cats. All of this is pulled together by your faculty into a "Twelve Step" program for comprehensive dental care. Participants will practice on biological materials in all aspects of assessing teeth for viability, periodontal health and pathology, taking diagnostic digital dental radiographs, and deploying an atraumatic and effective periodontal treatment under adequate levels of analgesia. The labs will include faculty supervision of the students' sulcus probing, sub-gingival root planing, sulcus curettage, supra-gingival calculus and stain removal, and application of perioceutic materials such as various biofilm inhibitors and fluoride based enamel hardeners. Labs will emphasize the landmarks for dental radiography and nerve blocks in each species. Additionally, there will be a full review of hand instrumentation and care of instruments via sharpening. How to select and use powered equipment is considered with emphasis on safety for the patient and technician. Faculty will provide a current, evidence-based review of prescription and over-the-counter products for adjunct dental care for in-patients as well as care at home.
