Veterinary dentists are trained to perform endodontics (prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the dental pulp), maxillofacial and oral radiology, maxillofacial and oral surgery, prescribing medicine, orthodontics (dealing with ill-positioned teeth or jaws and their correction), pedodontics (or paediatric dentistry, most often cases of decidual teeth) and prosthodontics (or prosthetic dentistry).
