Oral trauma surgery workshop
It is a great pleasure for KRUUSE in co-operation with Brook Niemiec and Camilla Heinze to invite veterinarians and veterinary nurses to an oral surgery dental course.
The attendees will work both in pairs and individually during the workshop. This 2-day laboratory will be an intense workshop on the pathophysiology and management of oral fractures. This will include patient management and necessary imaging, followed by a hands on lab on managing fractures, including wiring and atraumatic acrylic splints. Finally, we will discuss complications related to fracture repair.
The course will primarily be conducted in English.
The course is aimed at veterinarians and veterinary nurses in small animal practice.
Veterinarians and veterinary nurses will work together in pairs. It may be an advantage that two participants from the same clinic/hospital attend this course in order to subsequently utilize the newly acquired knowledge and skills in the most optimal way.
