About this course

We plan to run this course on Tuesday 23rd November 2021. The RVC is committed to providing a safe learning environment for all our students so we may be required to make changes to course provision depending on the COVD-19 situation in the coming year. We will therefore not require payment until we are confident the course can go ahead. Please register your interest in attending by emailing cpd@rvc.ac.uk

Are you looking to perform a bit more than routine rasping without wanting to become a specialist?

This course is aimed at practitioners who are happy performing routine rasping of day-to-day cases and want to develop their skills further without seeking to become a specialist. The course aims to fill the gap between a basic and advanced course. The course will be delivered as recorded webinars (to be watched in your own time before the practical day) followed by a day of practical sessions and case discussions.

Why do this course?
You will build on your current knowledge and learn about more advanced dentistry techniques that can be performed in the field.
