Dental Radiology Masterclass - Workshop One
Intra-oral radiography is a key component of quality companion animal practice. AVDS masterclasses are for those veterinarians who want to achieve best practice standards in dentistry for their patients – better diagnostic skills, better treatment options, better results.

Our oral radiology masterclasses will focus on the practice of producing diagnostic dental images and how to interpret the images created. Each class will be held over a 2 hour period where attendees will:
  • Identify normal oral radiographic features of dogs and cats
  • Recognise pathological changes on radiographs and how they relate to clinical findings
  • Learn concepts behind the parallel and bisecting angle radiographic techniques
  • Position radiographic image plates and produce full mouth image series of dog and cat skulls
  • Identify other non-standard views of the oral cavity
  • Learn about additional uses for dental radiographic equipment
Masterclasses are strictly limited to 10 participants per class to ensure that every participant receives the best attention and learning experience possible. There will be two experienced dental practitioners and two technicians who will support each class. Dr Rod Salter and Dr Tony Caiafa will be your tutors.

Rod and Tony will tailor the educational content on attendees learning objectives. If you are a veterinarian who has never taken an intra-oral radiograph and want to experience the difference they could make to your dental care offering, then this masterclass is for you. If you are a veterinarian in a practice with all the right equipment but wish to improve your skills and confidence in taking diagnostic images, then this is the masterclass for you. AVDS oral radiology masterclasses are a fast paced way to fast track your dental service to best practice standards.
