Do you consider yourself as a “dental-enthusiast” at your practice who wants to know more about the appropriate armamentarium for your dental work? Or are you that lucky (or unlucky) clinician who gets all the dental procedures at your practice and feels the pressure to know? If the answer is “yes” (or even if the answer is “no”), this presentation will be serve as a guideline in selecting the armamentarium for the most common dental procedures in small animal veterinary practices. The fundamentals of dental equipment and instruments which includes dental units, dental radiographs, hand instruments, oral surgery, suture materials, and restorative materials will be covered along with a brief discussion on instrument sharpening. We will also discuss the appropriate instrumentation techniques to perform the dental procedures ergonomically to reduce fatigue and excessive strains. Please note that the presentation will not promote any particular brands or manufacturing company.
