“I’m a veterinarian who had little previous dental experience. I took one of my technician interested in dentistry out with me a few years ago for training and it absolutely changed how we practice everything related to oral health and surgery. The instruction was fantastic, from the boarded dentists to the very experienced technicians. It has changed the way we practice and has been a significant benefit not only to our clinic but especially for our patients!”
Dr. Jon Gose
“Just wanted to say how great the FelineDentistry CE was! It was amazing, important and pertinent to go over the behavior and handling part for cats. That was such forward thinking! I love the client manual, so thank you for that too! Not only was the information great, but it was very refreshingly well-rounded CE. Thanks so much again. We are all lucky to have taken this course!”
