Horses teeth erupt between 3 to 7mm’s a year and if dental treatment is not received this can lead to a number of problems that affect not only the horses health, but can also affect competitive performance. The younger the horse is when they start receiving dental treatment the risk of any of any major malocclusions is greatly reduced.
I have spent my whole life with horses and have been involved with many different aspects of the equine world. From Point to Point racing to Breeding through to Eventing and Pleasure Riding. I have always wanted to work with horses and whilst studying at the Royal Agricultural College at Cirencester for a degree in International Equine and Agricultural Business Management, I decided a career improving the welfare and health of horses and ponies was for me and equine dentistry seemed the perfect option, it seemed the perfect way I could give back to the animals that have given so much pleasure through the years.
I trained in New Zealand at the New Zealand School of Equine Dentistry in 2003 under the instruction of Warwick Behrns EqDT/IAED/CA one of only 15 advanced certified Dental technicians in the world. Whilst there I worked on a number of different horses and dental problems. Through my experience with Racehorses and youngstock, I believe I have developed an understanding, quiet and relaxed approach to dealing with horses, and make sure the whole experience is not a stressful one for you or your horse.
I have worked with a large number of nervous horses or horses that have had bad experiences of dentistry in the past, using my approach and working within their comfort zones and taking time with each horse, many have become a lot more relaxed and excepting of the whole procedure.
