Extraction of teeth can be “awfully simple” or “simply awful”! And if you’ve ever tried, you will know where the frustrated phrase “it’s like pulling teeth!” came from.

Come learn how to make your life easier at our hands-on extraction lab.

Our next scheduled classes are:

Friday, January 12, 2018 Canine Extraction

Sunday, January 28, 2018 Feline Extraction

If you are interested in attending a class or being notified when the next one becomes available, please email Dr. Bannon or call 505-471-0747.

The class includes:

Morning: Lectures
Oral analgesia and local block techniques, extraction techniques, tips and tricks, including discussion of oronasal fistula repair

Afternoon: Hands-on Wet Lab

  • Extraction of single and multirooted teeth
  • Each participant will have their own high-speed workstation and equipment
  • Class size is limited so that each veterinarian can have individualized instruction

Breakfast and lunch are included!

For the hands-on wet lab, the attendee can choose if they would prefer experience with canine extractions or feline extractions. We recommend starting with canine extractions if you have never taken a hands-on extraction lab before, even if you are most frustrated with cat teeth. The basic principles are easier to learn on a dog, and they apply very nicely to a cat later. Please ask for more information and let us know when registering for the class!

Access to dental radiographs will be provided for assistance with extraction but instruction on radiographic positioning and technique will be limited to extra time available

New Mexico state law requires that only veterinarians are allowed to perform oral surgery. Therefore, this class is limited to veterinarians only.

Class price is $625 + tax. This class has been approved for 8 hours of CE Credit with the NM Board of Veterinary Medicine.

Location: 5 Camino Karsten Algodones, NM 87001
