One day workshop


Vet Nurses

In this workshop you will take your skills to the next level. Performing a conscious oral examination on patients goes far beyond a quick flip of the lip and looking for red gums & tartar buildup. You will formalise your nurse dental check into a value-add consultation for your client along with a more thorough approach to the conscious oral examination.

This workshop will also see you return to clinic with the confidence and skills to take any dental x-ray on the first go and the understanding on how to correct common dental x-ray mistakes. This one-of-a-kind workshop for Nurses will see you take on the role of Dental Champion in your clinic.
