Masters degrees in Clinical Veterinary Dentistry train postgraduates in the skills needed to diagnose and treat oral-related health problems in animals.
Other related postgraduate specialisms include Clinical Veterinary Medicine, Veterinary Nursing and Animal Health. The entry requirements of most programmes include an undergraduate degree in a veterinary science.
Veterinary Dentistry is a complex and broad subject, so courses often give you the opportunity to specialise in certain kinds of animal. For example, you might focus on dentistry for production animals or small animals (namely cats, dogs and other companion species), as well as equine dentistry.
Programmes give you something to get your teeth into (pun intended), and you’ll find yourself learning about the effects of illness, injury and disease on the animal mouth.
These qualifications set you up perfectly for a career in veterinary dentistry. If you’re already a qualified veterinarian, courses in Clinical Veterinary Dentistry are an excellent way of widening your expertise.
