Do you and your nursing team underutilise your dental and radiography skills?

Lets get to the root of the problem!
In-House Hot Topic CPD.

Nurses, do you want to feel empowered in practice? Do you want to utilise your skills? Do you want job satisfaction in an area you shy away from?

Taking diagnostic dental X-rays is a massive passion of mine and something we, as nurses, are underutilised doing in practice.

Did you know that all aspects apart from tooth extraction with instruments are allowed by RVNs? Under Schedule 3 of the Veterinary Surgeons Act, we can:

• Take dental x-rays.
• Perform full mouth assessment with the use of instruments and dental charts.
• Perform a descale with the use of hand and ultrasonic scalers.
• Place intraoral and extraoral local anaesthesia.
• Apply gingival sealants.

The only part of the dental process that would require veterinary implementation would be the diagnosis and extraction process, thus rendering your whole nursing team to oversee the dental procedure. Exciting right?!

Example of utilising your skills:

Mrs. Smith brings Fluffy the cat in for a check-up; you find plaque and calculus accumulation with halitosis. Fluffy’s coat is matted and she has lost 500g since her last check. What questions can you ask your client to see an overall picture of Fluffy’s health?

• Have you noticed a change in Fluffy’s eating habits?
• Is she on a wet or dry diet?
• Have you noticed any drool or tinged wet patches where Fluffy has been sleeping?
• Fluffy’s coat is a little matted. Have you noticed she hasn’t been grooming as much recently?
• When she eats, does she pick up and drop her food again? Or does she avoid one side of the mouth or swallow food?

You can book Fluffy for her dental procedure and be part of the entire process!

What does this help with?

You can let your clients know that you’ll be part of Fluffy’s procedure; the human/animal bond is reflected in that consult room. Building rapport with clients and letting them know you will look after their beloved pet helps that patient build trust. Many owners fear anaesthesia, which is a big reason why pets are unfortunately left suffering.

In the dental area, with protocols in place, you can induce animals into anaesthesia, take their dental radiographs, chart, scale, and place nerve blocks (your vet can then walk in and extract teeth); you can polish and apply a gingival sealant, wake the patient up, done!

Whilst we cannot diagnose, we can offer the team a clinical discussion about the findings on the radiographs (I love looking at pathology on radiographs, not just dental ones) and help plan and implement a treatment programme for your patient.

I can help your nursing team to utilise their dentistry skills, enhance client care, increase revenue for your practice and above all, achieve huge job satisfaction.
