anatomy, steps of a complete oral examination, review of oral pathology, steps

Intraoral Radiology - Beyond What Our Eyes Can See

This course is designed for veterinarians and technicians.  Intraoral radiology is
the cornerstone to the diagnosis, treatment planning and monitoring of oral
disease.  It allows us to determine what pathology lies where our eyes cannot
see and to determine treatment protocol based on factual information.  Tips and
techniques to obtain diagnostic intraoral radiographs will be discussed.  A wet
lab will allow participants to have "hands on" practice in the use of dental
radiography and dental digital radiography.  A lecture discussing the
interpretation of dental radiographs  will follow the laboratory.

Dentistry 201 - Regional Analgesia, Periodontal Surgery and Extraction

This course is for veterinarians only.  Interactive lecture topics include:  pain
management in oral surgery, periodontal surgery and steps to surgical
extractions.  The laboratory following the lectures will allow the veterinarian to
practice local anesthetic techniques, open and closed root planing and
curettage, use of perioceutic, gingivectomy and surgical extractions on dog and
cat specimens.

All of the above courses are held at the Northern Illinois University Campus,
5555 Trillium Blvd., Hoffman Estates, Illinois 60195.
