AWho is the Roadmap Wet Lab Virtual Course For?

Veterinarians and Technicians

BWho is the Extraction Wet Lab Virtual Course For?

Veterinarians Only

CWhat is the main difference between Roadmap and Extraction Virtual Wet Labs?

Roadmap Virtual Wet Lab is a comprehensive and actionable Introductory Dentistry Virtual course that focuses on training the Veterinarian and the Technician to become familiar with various procedures and clinical aspects of veterinary dentistry.

It is strongly recommended that the vet/tech dentistry team attend
and go through this course together for maximal impact.

Extraction Virtual Wet Lab is the brand new version of our past Virtual Extraction Wet Lab and builds on the knowledge and skills from Roadmap Virtual Wet Lab. Upon registration, you get 5 hours of RACE approved video instruction and 7 hour RACE approved online course to access immediately and master prior to coming to the actual lab. The Extraction Virtual Wet Lab is conducted at the comfort of your own practice with our virtual instructors guiding you. The Virtual Wet Lab then utilizes that knowledge to provide a day of clinical wet lab instruction, much like its Live Course counterpart during Sundays, to round out the skills needed by veterinarians to excel in veterinary dentistry in general practice.

DAre Veterinarians required to finish the Roadmap Virtual Wet Lab before proceeding to Extraction Virtual Wet Lab?

It is recommended but not required that Veterinarians take the Roadmap Wet Lab Virtual or Roadmap Wet Lab Live.

FIs Extraction Virtual the same as the Virtual Veterinary Dentistry Extraction Weekend Course that you have done the last several years?

The new Extraction Virtual Wet Lab takes the lecture from the past labs and puts it into a 5-hour and 7-hour RACE accredited courses that you access immediately and is yours to keep and refer back to for life. These are prerequisites to be completed prior to Saturday day one.

This leaves all day on Sunday for nothing but hands-on dog and cat extractions utilizing the skills that you have acquired from Roadmap Virtual Wet Lab, the 5-hour and 7-hour online courses.

Not only do you get 4 more hours of CE than the previous format (20 vs 16) you have much more hands-on time in the wet lab. You also keep the 5-hour and 7-hour online courses that before was the lecture provided throughout Saturday and Sunday
