WE ALL DESERVE THE BEST CARE
“We are using the most advanced technology, nothing different from a normal dental practice for humans,” Jens explained. “I really need to be able to decrease my failure rate. After an unsuccessful treatment on a human, the patient would just come and tell me that something hurts; but with animals it's a completely different story.”
Veterinary dental units have significantly improved over the last years, yet there is still no comparison between what's available for animal and for human treatments. “If you have a clinic and you do dentistry once a month, standard equipment is sufficient ,” Jens explained. “But we, of course, need more advanced and reliable solutions, as dentistry is what we do every day.
Because of the great technical service and quality of XO’s products, I have never had a day when I could not work. This is rarely the case with other products.”
BECOMING A SPECIALIST
At the moment Jens is one of 25 dental specialists in Europe who have been certified by the European Veterinary Dental College (EVDC). Becoming a specialist is not easy and requires serious dedication and professionalism. Yet, according to Jens, “There is a huge need for more specialists, simply because there are so many cases to handle.”
To help other vets understand the importance of good dental treatment Jens spends around 45 days a year running trainings and giving lectures that deal with topics ranging from preventive dentistry and endodontics to specialized cases like orthodontics, tumor surgeries, jaw fractures and implantology.
