Veterinary Dentistry is still a relatively new field. The American Veterinary Dental College™ was founded in 1989, and there are only about 150 veterinary dental specialists worldwide. Because of this, many general practitioners graduated from veterinary school before there was a dental department, and without training from a board certified veterinary dentist™. Even now, not all veterinary schools have a dentist on staff. Veterinarians graduating today often still have limited exposure to veterinary dentistry because of all of the information that they are expected to learn in just a few short years.

At Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery of NM, LLC, we are committed to teaching and learning for everyone. We provide frequent and ongoing continuing education for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, staff and receptionists. This allows all veterinarians the opportunity to provide quality basic dental care, and recognize when the need for advanced dental care is indicated. Dr. Bannon regularly teaches and lectures to veterinarians nationally and internationally.

Even veterinarians that feel comfortable with most dental procedures report that they have learned something when they attend one of our classes.
