Course Focus and Learning Objectives

VetCE on Demand: It's More Than Missing Teeth: Recognizing Dental and Oral Abnormalities utilizes the archive of a live presentation under the same name.

Take your dental charting to the next level. It is important to recognize both normal anatomy and abnormal dental and oral pathology. Oral pathology is often misdiagnosed and underdiagnosed due to lack of recognition. Once one can recognize what is abnormal in the mouth, correct charting may be completed. The proper treatment options for commonly seen pathology are discussed and described. Abbreviations according to the American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC) are used for commonly seen pathology and are discussed.

At the end of the course participants should be able to:

  • explain the importance of identifying dental and oral disease
  • recognize commonly found pathology of the teeth and oral cavity of cats and dogs
  • demonstrate how oral pathology should be documented on the dental chart
  • explain what the appropriate treatment options are
