General Veterinary Technician Session: The complete dental procedure, from the pre-anesthetic exam to the discharge is explained. This lecture covers what one needs to do before putting an animal under anesthesia for a dental procedure. This includes a physical exam, blood work, consent forms, anesthetic protocols, and pain management before the procedure is started. Once our patient is under anesthesia, we must know and understand positioning, monitoring, and basic instruments. The steps of a dental procedure from induction through recovery to the patient walking out the door are covered. Key points include client education, communication, anesthetic monitoring, and performing/writing appropriate discharge instructions. Attendees will learn how to present all of the information so that clients can understand the value of high-quality dental care and be more compliant.
