Root Canals on Monkeys! Is That Really a Thing? – Ep. 15
This episode of Endo Voices features an engaging clinical practitioner showcasing her wild side with … animal endodontics! Dr. Kimberly Lindquist, Diplomate of the AAE and past Board member shares her experience in the world of animal endodontics. We start with the introduction to the world of treating a rare breed of monkey. She highlights the parallels with human patients and of course the challenges.
Does working as an “animal endodontist” have more predictable clinical successes? What does the clinic setup look like and did she at any point feel unsafe while performing this procedure on a wild animal? Dr. Lindquist also touches on the social media resources that connect animal healthcare workers and their equivalent to the AAE’s annual meeting – or, “animal meeting”, as you might say.
This episode will have you questioning whether you really have treated a “long tooth” or not. Tune in to this friendly conversation on the dos and don’ts of root canals on animals!
