We guarantee you will leave this workshop with improved equine dentistry skills!
  • Have you already attended our introductory 5 day Level 1 Essentials of Equine Dentistry course, and now have done enough mouths that you have more questions than answers?
  • Are you enjoying the challenge and satisfaction of helping horses’ lives through equine dentistry, and want to go to the next level?
  • Are you ready to learn how to confidently treat the more complicated cases you see, rather than needing to refer them, or even worse, not offering any treatment options for them?
  • Are you missing out on lots more work because you are rushing your dentals, and missing pathology and thus not helping the horse or client as much as you should?
  • Are you NOT enjoying dentistry because you find it too hard, physically demanding, or you are not confident enough?
  • Are you thinking of sitting your Membership Exams in Equine Dentistry at the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists?
  • Are you ready to learn the handy tips to make your work so much easier, faster and simpler?

If you can answer 'yes' to any one of the questions above, then our 4 day Level 2 Intermediate Equine Dentistry workshop is for you!

Tutors Prof Gary Wilson and Assoc Prof Denis Verwilghen (Uni of Syd) will enlighten and inspire your confidence and enthusiasm to help you take the step towards total mastery and fulfilment from doing equine dentistry properly.

High quality equine dentistry continues to be embraced by horse owners, world-wide, and appreciated through their willingness to pay for quality work.

Through more veterinarians doing more thorough oral examinations, the percentage of horses getting their mouths checked properly and regularly increase from the current level of 20 % to much higher – don’t miss the boat on getting some of this boom! It is “win win” between horse, owner and veterinarian, and is the key towards finding better work life balance in equine practice!

If you think you have enough experience in the field to attend Level 2 but haven’t completed Level 1, you may still be able to attend by applying to EVDS for special consideration.

There are limited seats for this Boutique Workshop, so register now to reserve your place at our next Level 2 workshop!
