Vets

Are you ready to take your dentistry skills to the next level? Master the skills of pulpcapping, jaw fracture repair, interarcade fixation and more. With a focus on learning the technical skills, you will also learn how to communicate these advanced treatment options to your clients.

This level III workshop will offer participants the opportunity to perform a vital pulpotomy procedure (pulp capping) for elective or recently fractured teeth with an exposed pulp (complicated crown fracture). Participants will receive expert tuition on all aspects of the pulpotomy procedure, including dental materials and instrumentation/equipment requirements, and hands on guidance in performing the procedure on canine teeth.

Prior attendance at our Dentistry I, and at least one of our Dentistry II workshops are pre-requisites for this workshop. This advanced workshop will assist candidates interested in sitting membership examinations in dentistry.

Key learning areas:

  • Vital pulp therapy for traumatic crown fractures and for management of “base narrow” malocclusions
  • Jaw fracture repair: Use of minimally invasive techniques for mandibular fractures in dogs
  • Interarcade fixation for jaw fractures in cats
