Nurses can play a significant role in the dental health of dogs and cats. This course will cover the common dental diseases seen in practice throughout the life of the pet. It will give practical advice on examining the oral and dental structures efficiently, producing a comprehensive dental chart, taking intra-oral dental X-rays and performing periodontal hygiene procedures (scaling, polishing, sub-gingival debridement). Homecare options will be discussed in detail, and workshop elements will be included to consider the challenges of anaesthetising the dental patient, and creating effective dental clinics.
