The Mock is not just taking an exam. It is about sharing what works in practice! It allows you trial runs in organization of materials and equipment and putting it all together to be prepared for a 13 hour examination. Not only is it a sharing amongst fellow attendees but also from the teachers. The Animal Dental Training Center allows this to happen because of the intensiveness of the two days and the camaraderie that develops. There are no two Mocks that are the same. Different procedures are requested each year and therefore there is a progression of learning since more than half the time is spent in group critiquing. Since the specimens are anonymously critiqued only the candidates themselves know whose specimen is being looked at.

Please note: due to the very limited number of spaces (11) available in this program, course tuition is non-refundable unless the exam is not being held. Those doctors interested in registering for the Mock but dependent on passing their Written and Bench exams in January should wait and not immediately register until they can fully commit. We will be making the final decision to hold the course, based on participant numbers, by the end of February 2017.

"The First Private Post-Graduate Center for
Continuing Education Courses in Veterinary Dentistry & Oral Surgery"

On January 29, 2000, the Animal Dental Training Center (ADTC) opened its doors and created 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 350 classes across all topics in small animal veterinary dentistry and oral surgery. The center has been host to over 4000 participants world-wide and remains the premier facility for those seeking unparalleled and comprehensive "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.

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 veterinary dental mock exams to help candidates prepare for taking their veterinary dental specialty boards.

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 our current animal dental continuing education offerings below.
