Scholarship

Introducing the Sigrid Hardy Dental CE Scholarship – For LVTs, CVTs & RVTs!

Among the many loves of Sigrid Hardy was her extreme love of teeth…. all kinds of teeth, big teeth, little teeth, old teeth, diseased teeth, fractured teeth, AND, let’s not forget the gum health thrill! Pockets, furcations, and bony reabsorption! Oh My!!!

Sigie saw the practice of veterinary dentistry grow and develop and she embraced the advancements. But what really made her amazing… was her constant curiosity and the way she did her job; the enthusiasm she brought to everyday life!  Sigie could make anyone smile, most people blush, and many people rethink their lives!

In all parts of her life, she was always open to learning. Her second biggest skill was the way she taught all the time, making it all look painless. She knew so much about veterinary dentistry… the academic, the practical and the actual hand motor skills! We feel like the best way to honor our friend, the veterinary dentist of the group, who had a wicked sense of humor, is to establish…
