Practical Dentistry For Nurses 17TH Feb 2023

Central CPD

3 weeks ago

Date: Friday 17th February, 2023
Start time: 10:00 AM
Cost: £275

This highly practical one-day dentistry course will look at the nurses’ role in small animal dentistry and how to bring this important subject to the forefront in practice.
Lecture based sessions will cover periodontal disease, oral and dental examination, dental radiography as well as dental instruments and their maintenance. Practical sessions will then help consolidate this knowledge, giving delegates the opportunity to practice probing, charting, scaling and sub gingival debridement as well as become familiar with dental instruments and techniques for obtaining diagnostic dental radiographs.

By the end of the course, delegates should be better able to:

Identify normal dentition in the dog and cat
Perform a thorough oral and dental examination
Create and interpret a completed dental chart
Discuss the pathogenesis of periodontal disease, and perform safe and effective treatments (including scaling, polishing, subgingival debridement)
Identify and provide correct maintenance for a variety of dental instruments
Set up effective dental clinics and make recommendations on effective homecare options
Obtain diagnostic dental radiographs.
Explain the benefits and risks of regional anaesthesia (dental nerve blocks) and safely apply dental nerve blocks to clinical patients.
Please note: A cadaver may be used for demonstration purposes.
