Adventures from Dr. Darlene’s trip to Australia for Equine Dentistry

Darlene in Australia

Dr. Darlene visiting some new friends. She had the chance to do some touring and sightseeing while she was on this trip.

Dr. Donszelmann recently travelled to New South Wales, Australia to help tutor in a five day intensive course: Essentials of Equine Dentistry 2015. The course was hard work but alot of fun with new colleagues, past acquaintances and 26 veterinarians from around the world including Thailand, Chile, New Zealand, Africa and Australia. Dr. Darlene was able to bring home a few new tools to help with dentistry and lots of great ideas from around the world—she is looking forward to implementing them, both in practice and in her teaching of a popular fourth year Equine Dental Rotation at the University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine!

While in Australia, Darlene had a chance to try scuba diving and sea kayaking, as well as exploring the rainforest of Queensland to the beaches of Noosa, the great sandy Fraser Island, and the interior agricultural areas of New South Wales.

Dr. Darlene is now preparing to write her ICEVO (International College of Equine Veterinary Orthodontists) over May long weekend. And then will be offering advanced dental procedures like pulp capping, minimally invasive tooth extraction and more!
