Oral extraction techniques have been shown to cause much fewer post-interventional complications in horses compared to surgical extraction techniques. Performing oral dental extractions should however not be taken lightly as complications like dental fractures, retained root tips, collateral damage etc. can easily occur and require in-depth anatomical knowledge, good technical skills and clinical versatility to resolve. This highly practical boutique course (max. 24 attendees) is aimed at practitioners with a good working knowledge in equine dentistry who want to learn about various oral dental extraction techniques, how to apply them clinically and managing arising complications.
To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have worked through the corresponding online Lecture Series ‘Equine Oral Dental Extraction Techniques‘:
- If you have already purchased the Lecture Series independently of the On-Location Portion, please contact the office on firstname.lastname@example.org for a voucher code to reduce the price accordingly.
The panel of internationally renowned specialists will be sharing technical tips and tricks and pearls of wisdom that they have accumulated over the many years of working in equine dental practice.
