Veterinary Dentistry for the Technician and Office Staff


  • Steven Holmstrom, DVM, Diplomate, AVDC, American Veterinary Dental College, San Carlos, CA

Veterinary Dentistry covers all aspects of dentistry with emphasis on procedures and the technician's role. Progressing from simple to complex topics, the book presents dental procedures first, with chapters on oral examinations, instruments, safety, and anesthesia, then progresses to procedures such as endodontics. The book concludes with two interesting chapters on marketing veterinary dentistry and commonly asked client questions, replete with acceptable technician responses.
