  • Equine Dentist Occupation

    What is it like to become an equine dentist?
    Ive researched month long programs, is there one that is best?
    Is this a profitable career path for a new college graduate?
    Any suggestions or advice from those that chose this path?

    Toothgrinder here is a dentist. He can give you the best advice. On FB his page is here:

    I personally wouldn't be using someone who'd only been to school for a few months. I prefer someone who's shadowed the best for years, performing an internship as it were. You can probably volunteer at your local equine vet and ride along to see if this interests you.

      Many jurisdictions consider dentistry to be practicing medicine. So you would need to finish vet school.

        Also some states require an equine dentist to be hooked up with and working under the direction of a Vet. In my area

        dentists aren't allowed to give sedatives either, only a vet. Some lightly trained people who claim to do teeth DO illegally

        sedate horses but these are the ones you want to avoid, IMO.

        My Vet has a very physically strong assistant who travels along on dental visits. It's not for the feint of heart as many

        horses are uncooperative for dentals without strong drugs and even then it's a physically demanding job.

          If you are a college graduate, there are likely better opportunities for you.
