American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC) Reading List

This is only a convenience copy of the AVDC reading list to help find copies of reading materials in local libraries.  It does not replace the official AVDC reading list. Candidates are responsible for ensuring they use the latest AVDC reading list.

This guide contains the list of books and journals recommended as study materials for the American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC) examination.

Residents are responsible for ensuring they are using the correct edition of a book for their exam.

Please ask your librarian, mentor, or specialty board examination committee if questions arise.

From the AVDC Suggested Reading List:

"The following list is provided as suggested reading material. It is not all inclusive of every potential reference and publication, because the body of scientific literature is fluid and always changing. No attempt is made to restrict examination questions to the material in these references. The examination reflects the current state of knowledge in veterinary dentistry rather than material from a particular group of references. Much of veterinary dental knowledge has been derived from human dentistry. This is reflected in the suggested reading list and will also be reflected in the examination itself."
