The Committees

EVDC is essentially a volunteer organisation. it depends upon the goodwill and the dedication of its membership to achieve its functions. Without the time donated by its committee members – the EVDC would cease to exist. The Board would like to thank all of the committee members for working for the benefit of the College, of Veterinary Dentistry and for the benefit of the wider profession and for the welfare of animals.
