This course covers oral examination of a feline patient, dental radiography, periodontal disease as well as other key feline dental conditions. The course also take you through peri-operative and home care.
The course will cover the following modules:
Module 1: The Oral Examination
In this first module we remind ourselves of dental anatomy and terminology before delving into dental examinations and recording our findings. This information will give a good grounding as we look into other areas of dentistry in more depth during the rest of the course
Module 2: Dental Radiography
This module covers the importance of dental radiography, identifying dental conditions which require radiographic investigation and practical information on intra-oral radiography techniques.
Module 3: Periodontal Disease
In this module we focus specifically on periodontal disease, a common problem in cats, and we will learn what is is and how to deal with it.
Module 4: Other Feline Dental Conditions
In this module we will discuss feline tooth resorption, endodontic disease and chronic gingivostomatitis.
Module 5: Peri-operative Care
Dental conditions cannot be diagnosed and treated without general anaesthesia, so in this module we will look at anaesthetic considerations as well as the equipment which is required to perform dental procedures and how to care for them.
Module 6: Home Care and Dental Clinics
The veterinary nurse's role does not end once dental procedures are complete - nurses play a key role in communicating with and educating clients on the subject of dental home care, both following dental work and as a preventative healthcare measure. This module looks at the options available for home care and the opportunities nurses have to share this with clients.
This course has been written by veterinary dental experts Lisa Milella BVSc Dipl. EVDC MRCVS and Claire Harrison BSc (Hons) RVN VTS (Dentistry).
