Animal Dental Training Logo

On January 29, 2000, the Animal Dental Training Center (ADTC) opened its doors and in doing so fulfilled one of Dr. Ira Luskin's professional missions; to create a permanent and dedicated facility for continuing education in veterinary dentistry and oral surgery for veterinarians and technicians alike. Since its inception, the Animal Dental Training Center has held over 300 classes across all topics in small animal veterinary dentistry and oral surgery and remains the premier facility for those seeking unparalleled comprehensive and "hands-on" veterinary dental continuing education programs. Small class sizes, individual workstations, interactive lectures, and an open forum approach to learning make classes at the ADTC a truly unique and professionally rewarding experience. Contact past participants and read what they have to say about their experience(s) at the Animal Dental Training Center in our testimonials section.


The many veterinary dental programs offered through the ADTC are for all ability levels and include special "technician weekends", exclusively feline programs, and continuing education courses in dental radiology, oral pathology, oral surgery, restorations, and endodontics for general practitioners and those veterinarians with a special interest in dentistry. Learn more about the current course offerings at the ADTC.


Starting in December of 2001, the ADTC began offering "Masters level" courses for those individuals with proficiency in dentistry and seeking training on more advanced topics within the dental disciplines. In addition to its regular schedule of courses, the ADTC has hosted the ACVS's Arlington VA's wet lab in dentistry, CVC East wet labs, and provides yearly mock exams to help candidates prepare for taking their veterinary dental specialty boards.
