Wildlife Dental Workshop Level 1

Introduction

Many wildlife species are accommodated in captivity and have to adapt to the domesticated food which might be very different with natural food.  All around the world, a fair number of these animals suffer from dental disease. Like you and me, the pain and suffering of dental diseases cannot be neglect. Luckily, there are expertise who can help to relieve their pain at not much risk to the animals and provide long term dental care which improves the wellbeing, health and comfort of the animals.

Aims

The purpose of this workshop is to enhance the familiarity of clinicians in very practical techniques to provide the animal proper dental care. We will teach the principles of routine dental examination and recording; taking dental radiographs; the interpretation of radiographs and closed extraction techniques.

Intended Audience
  • Veterinarians is priority to register.
  • If any vet technicians who are currently working with dentistry can contact us for the possibility to learn examination via radiography.
  • Tentatively 12 participants.
