Small Animal Dental Procedures for Veterinary Technicians and Nurses is a comprehensive, procedures-based resource for technicians and nurses involved with all aspects of canine, feline, and exotic animal dentistry. Heavily illustrated and clinically oriented, this training manual provides step-by-step instructions on the oral exam, anesthesia, cleaning and radiology, as well as the necessary background on dental anatomy, common diseases and terminology. Each chapter includes learning objectives and key terms to promote retention, and a companion website provides review questions, training exercises, images from the book and additional images in PowerPoint, chapter glossaries, and forms available for download.

Fully authored by Veterinary Technician Specialists in Dentistry, the book covers all aspects of veterinary dentistry that a technician will encounter in daily practice, with a special emphasis on the technician's role relative to dental procedures. With extensive full-color pictures, review questions and glossary terms, Small Animal Dental Procedures for Veterinary Technicians and Nurses is equally useful for veterinary technician or nursing students, technicians or nurses in practice, and those pursuing their specialty certification in veterinary dentistry.
