Just as each horse is an individual, each case is different.  In my experience, not all horses will display obvious signs of discomfort when they need dental attention.

During a visit I 

  • assess the horse as a whole 
  • perform a thorough examination of the head and oral cavity to identify malocclusions, dental disease and any abnormal dentition.  
  • Provide dental balance and symmetry using a wide range of equipment
  • Provide the client with a dental chart identifying malocclusions and work performed as well as a future action plan.  
By personal choice, I primarily use hand tools for routine work and power tools for major overgrowths under sedation by a Veterinary Surgeon.  All I ask is for fresh water (cold is fine!) and a lit area to work in. 

I recommend that all horses should be initially checked around their first birthday and then routinely every 6 months, from the age of 2 years.  

I treat all of my patients with the exact same high standard regardless of their use or performance status.  I treat Shetlands and donkeys right up to shire horses, broodmares and companion/retired ponies/horses up to international competition ponies/horses.    

I also allow plenty of time per patient so I can give them my full attention in a calm and relaxed manner and have therefore been able to treat many horses who previously had to be sedated for dental work.  This in turn lowers the cost for the owner, as it reduces the expense of calling a veterinary surgeon out to sedate.
