“A good theoretical & practical course.”
Sanne Journee, Paardengebit Dierenarts, Friesland, The Netherlands - Advanced Diagnostic & Therapeutic Techniques in Equine Dentistry course
“A well organized approach to proper equine dentistry for every practitioner. This course will prepare a new graduate and experienced practitioners.”
Scott Wilson, CA - Essentials of Equine Dentistry course
“On the high-end of course but well worth the expense. The title was misleading, this course helped increase my knowledge and scope of veterinary dentistry. I do not believe this was "Basic Dentistry" content, it was better.”
