Is this course for me?

Wednesday 30th March 2022: Bolton Lancashire

This course is suitable for Veterinary Nurses and SVN's.

This attendance course discusses the key skills required for safe and practical dentistry to include tooth anatomy and dental formulae, home care, radiography, nerve blocks and much more.

You will learn what is normal/abnormal and be able to assess teeth during routine clinics to be able to further support clients on oral healthcare at home and feel confident with your recommendations. We will look into what a registered veterinary nurse (RVN) and student veterinary nurse (SVN) are legally allowed to do in practice including setting up and running successful dental clinics, anaesthesia/analgesia considerations and the practical aspects of dentistry from gingiva probing to descaling. There will be a separate module on dental radiography as this is a relatively new procedure in the dental world.

These modules are designed with patient welfare at the forefront, firstly for home care and client compliance and secondly how to minimise anaesthesia time by being confident and competent in what you are doing.

RVN (future NCert Dent 2021)

Sarah Ramsden

I qualified as an RVN in 2018, whilst relatively new to the industry I have already gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in all aspects of practice life from medical to surgical nursing and a spell of being a head nurse thrown in for good measure. I fell in love with companion dentistry after finding that a lot of my colleagues shied away from it, plus I enjoy being a little bit different. I definitely feel I have found my niche and have decided to run with it, you may know me as ‘The Dental RVN’ on social media. I am passionate about wanting to teach about the importance of dentistry and what we as nurses can do to promote animal welfare, from nurse consults to when the patient is under anaesthesia having their procedure. I am just about to start studying for a certificate in dentistry so that I am able to bestow my knowledge for best practice. Whilst I work in first opinion practice, we are seeing an increase in dental referrals which excites me a great deal. My favourite part about dentistry is being able to get stuck in as I love being practical.
