Independent providers of high quality equine dental care
If you are in the Avon region and own horses, ponies or donkeys, you may require some dental work for your animals. Wessex equine dental services provide professional dentistry and can evaluate and then carry out any dental work required, we carry out the compete process, evaluation, and procedures on site. Wessex equine dentists recommend your horse’s teeth are examined every 6 to 12 months depending on previous dental history and your animals age. If you notice any signs of dental problems, please make an appointment as soon as possible in order to keep your horse healthy and pain free.
Routine dental care is so important to the performance and welfare of your horse, without looking inside your horses mouth you wont know if there are any underlying problems. Horses will hide any conditions they have from you as not to seem weak, this is because they are psychologically prey animals and must look as strong as possible.

Curtis has been looking after my dressage horse Bardot for a couple of years now, as well as also looking after my 2 ponies, including a very naughty minature shetland! In October, Bardot was becoming increasingly unhappy in her mouth and was extremely inconsistant in the contact, she was also becoming more and more flat and was really not looking very well. After several vets looked in her mouth and couldn't see any problems, they suspected that she had a virus. We called out Curtis to see what he could find as she wasn't improving - he came first thing the following day. As expected her teeth and surrouding tissue was fine but Curtis found a slight swelling on her lower jaw bone on the near side. From the swelling there was some puss oozing out. The next day she was x-rayed at Endells and the vets there were extremely impressed with Curtis for finding this very slight swelling which they had a job to find, despite knowing where it was! Bardot was then operated on the next day, and a 3cm bone chip was removed from her jaw bone and the infection around it was cleaned up. She is now healing well and is happily working in a hackamore - we are hoping to be able to put a bit back in towards the end of December. We are so grateful that Curtis found this swelling as I hate to think what would be happening now if it had still not been discovered! We now hope to be making our PSG debut next year!
The British Association Of Equine Dental Technicians (BAEDT) was founded in 2001 and is an organisation for qualified professional Equine Dental Technicians, promoting the professional training of technicians and to provide greater understanding of the need for equine dentistry to the general public.
The first and most important things I did with horses is to ensure that their teeth are checked along with their backs. This then ensured that they were comfortable and pain free which gave me a blank canvass to work with. I spent a period of 6 months working with horses in Australia and during this time I was given the opportunity to train at the College of Equine Dentistry Australia which is recognised as having one of the highest standards of equine dentistry tuition in the world and there I continued to train and work as an equine dentist.
