State of the art in dentistry and oral surgery - CT - When is it useful?

Speakers' biography


Dr. Cedric LC Tutt
BSc(Agric), BVSc, BVSc(Hons), MMed Vet(Med), Diplomate EVDC, MRCVS

Dr Cedric is from a farming background, having grown up on a mixed enterprise farm near East London, in the Eastern Province of South Africa. As a youngster he participated in the treatment of livestock and pets and preferred to ride his old horse each afternoon rather than do school homework!

After spending 2 years in the military (a requirement at the time), he graduated with a BSc Agriculture degree and spent 2.5 years participating in research in aromatic plants; grown for their fragrance and flavour characteristics. During this time Cedric decided that he should revisit his first-choice career, and at the age of 29 was accepted to study veterinary science at Onderstepoort, the veterinary faculty at the University of Pretoria. Graduating at 35 years of age, he immediately entered a Clinical Assistant programme and obtained the BVSc(Hons) and the specialist degree in cattle medicine, MMedVet(Med). Thereafter he and his wife, Kim (also a veterinarian), moved to the UK for 7 years where Cedric specialized in veterinary dentistry and became a diplomate of the European Veterinary Dental College in 2007, and has served as President of the EVDC. He is currently a member of the EVDC Examination Committee. He has published numerous articles and presented presented dentistry and oral surgery lectures at congresses in Europe, China, Hong Kong, UK and South Africa.



Dr. Roxanne Emslie

Dr. Roxanne Emslie graduated from Onderstepoort in 2014 and returned to Onderstepoort to complete a small animal internship in 2016.
