Oral radiology is a vital diagnostic tool in veterinary dentistry. It not only allows the visualisation of tooth structure below the gingiva, but also offers an assessment of the periodontal and pulpal health of the tooth as well as any bony/soft tissue pathology that may be present, among other helpful diagnostic features. This highly informative lecture will detail how to accurately interpret your dental radiographs, so that you have the full picture, when approaching dental procedures, and can make the best decisions for your patient- and avoid painful and costly mistakes!

Dr Anthony (Tony) Caiafa is one of only a handful of veterinarians globally that have degrees in both Veterinary Science and Human Dentistry, and he is the only one currently working in the veterinary dental field in Australia.
Tony graduated from Melbourne University in 1978 with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science. He worked in companion animal practice in Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula for 16 years, gaining memberships in both small animal surgery (1992) and veterinary dentistry (1993), before returning to Melbourne University in 1995 to study Dentistry.
Studying human dentistry allowed Tony to further his knowledge of veterinary dentistry, in particular to understand in more detail the pathological processes associated with oral diseases.
In 1998 Tony graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Science and was dux of his graduating year. Since then he has worked in both human dental and veterinary dental fields. He was a senior lecturer and consultant in companion animal dentistry at University of Melbourne from 2000 till 2008.
Tony has continued his education in the human dental field in the area of implantology and has been involved with research led by a world-renowned specialist periodontist, Dr Stephen Chen.
Tony moved to the Sunshine Coast in 2008, and now divides his time between working as a human dentist on the Sunshine Coast, seeing veterinary dental cases, and teaching veterinary dentistry at conferences and workshops in Australia and overseas, as well as teaching the undergraduate veterinary science students at JCU, Townsville.
Tony also provides pro bono services at the RSPCA in Noosaville.
In 2018, Tony visited the Lionsrock big cat sanctuary in Bethlehem, South Africa, assisting in the dental treatments of rescued lions, tigers, and African wild dogs. (VIDEO: Channel 7 news about Tony’s visit to Lionsrock in South Africa.)
In his spare time Tony enjoys cycling and going to the gym and experiencing the local cuisine while travelling overseas. Tony has a very spoilt elderly Australian mist cat, Jake.
