EVDC documents are under review and revision. Should any discrepancy occur with statements in the by-laws, the by-laws supersede any other document.
The EVDC is a non-profit educational organisation whose objectives are the advancement of veterinary dentistry, odonto-stomatology and oral surgery. Its members are highly trained specialists in the field of veterinary dentistry and are dedicated to helping improve animal’s health and disseminating dentistry knowledge to other vets and to the public.
In essence Diplomates of the EVDC have gone far beyond the level of dentistry found in most veterinary practices. Veterinary surgeons when confronted with a complex dentistry case will often refer the case to a Diplomate for assistance in providing care. Complicated extractions, root canal treatment, fractured teeth, tumours of the oral cavity, facial trauma, crowns or orthodontic treatment are all the sort of cases that Diplomates deal with on a regular basis. The fact that a veterinary surgeon refers a case to an acknowledged expert indicates that the veterinary surgeon is wanting to achieve the best possible care for the patient. This is a tribute to their dedication – it reflects well on their professionalism.
The EVDC fulfils its aims through:
· The development of postgraduate teaching programmes
· Defining and describing the veterinary dental specialty and its sub disciplines
· Defining the standard of qualifications for veterinary dental specialists
· Certifying member veterinarians satisfying those requirements as specialists
· The supervision of the professional activities of its members
· The encouragement of its members to pursue original investigations
· The encouragement of its members to contribute to the veterinary literature
· Promoting co-operation between national and international veterinary dental groups
· Promoting co-operation between veterinary dental and other organizations
