We are very VERY pleased to advise that FINALLY we have all our past Dental Columns / Vetnews articles online!!

We also, as I am sure you have noticed, attained a Search Bar and should there be anything you require, please make use of this tool to facilitate your find.

All the articles are currently listed by procedure, they will ultimately end up in a catagory, so please bear with us as we update our service to suite you better.

All reasearch / training and reference material we make openly available to all veterinary practitioners and their staff to enhance knowledge, technique and offer insight into some of the more difficult cases that could come into a surgery.

At no stage may any part of the article, images from, column or publication be used in any way or manner other than for self-improvement as mentioned above; unless otherwise stated, without receiving written permission from the office of Vetdent and or Dr Gerhard Steenkamp.
