Oral Anatomy and Terminology

The first step to providing appropriate dental care to our patients is learning normal oral anatomy. This 50-minute lecture describes oral, skull, and tooth anatomy. The Triadan tooth numbering system and directional terminology is explained. This includes an introduction to charting and preparing for the dental cleaning. One will learn proper terminology and charting techniques along with being comfortable with the anatomy of the mouth, skull and teeth.

Dental and Oral Abnormalities

Learn to recognize the normal anatomy and learn abnormal dental and oral pathology. The proper treatment options for commonly seen pathology is discussed and described. Abbreviations according to the American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC) are used for commonly seen pathology and are discussed so proper dental charting can be performed.
