Benefit From Our Program

Veterinary Dentistry Externship / Internship Opportunities

For veterinary students in their third and fourth years that have a special interest in oral disease and its treatment, the Animal Dental Center offers 2-3 week Dental Externship programs. Due to limited space availability, we recommend that all students apply early.

As part of our Externship program, students participate on all aspects of dental case management including shadowing our boarded dentists, taking pet histories, and learning about client education through their pet’s presenting problem and recommended treatment options. Our doctors usually perform treatment the same day as the client consult which further reinforces student understanding of concepts involved with the actual medical procedures. It helps in connecting the oral exam visuals with the subsequent under anesthesia evaluation of the oral problem and the initiated therapy.

For those students who anticipate continuing on to specialize in dentistry and oral surgery, it allows them to integrate with our doctor team and often benefits in their subsequent application and selection to our formal residency programs.
