Human Dentist, Dental Hygienist or Dental Assistant
If you are a human dentist, dental hygienist or dental assistant and would like the opportunity to work with veterinary patients, please note that veterinary dentistry is a part of the practice of veterinary medicine.

Even though you may be highly qualified in the human dental field, Veterinary Medical Practice Acts in US states and Canadian provinces require that any dental work done on veterinary patients must be done by or under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian. Please see the AVDC Position Statement on Veterinary Dental Healthcare Providers and the Further Information for Human Health Professionals.

Contact veterinarians near you to locate one that may be interested in collaborating with you.

If you would like to find out what is going on in the field of veterinary dentistry, attend the annual Veterinary Dental Forum, or subscribe to the Journal of Veterinary Dentistry.
