What Vets Say About Our PgCert Dentistry Course...

Practicals were good. Nice being able to take so many dental x-rays, ‘correct’ my image mistakes. Great equipment. Lots of time afforded to extraction practical which was great as this was needed! Got more out of probing and charting exercise than I thought I would.

Charlie Mellor MRCVS

Very positive experience, particularly the practical sessions.

Selenia Davolio MRCVS

Well organised. Good equipment provided, plenty of help available.

Catherine Pitcher MRCVS

Ratio of students to tutors was good. Both tutors very approachable and knowledgeable and helpful.

Danielle Fitchett MRCVS

Great experience, motivates a lot.

Tynke Bakker MRCVS

I am developing more and more at each dental due to this course.

Chrislyn Coolman MRCVS

Great specimens, excellent kit. Well structured and plenty of guidance from tutors.

Charlie Mellor MRCVS

Completing the PgCert has given me both practical skills and confidence to forward my interest in veterinary dentistry and allowed me to provide the best patient care possible. The tutors are excellent and very approachable, and the content is very clinically relevant. I am happy I made the decision to enrol.
