|About||BEVA & BVDA Equine dental technician covering all of Cornwall and some of Devon|
I have had horses all my life and have ridden since the age of two. Coming from a family of Veterinary Surgeons (dad, grandad, uncle and veterinary nurse aunt) it was a natural progression to want to help and work with horses.
I went to Hartpury College in 2007 to study Equine Dental Science BSc (Hons) and graduated in 2010 with a 2:1. I started my business in June 2010 and have been working and living in North Cornwall ever since.
I passed my British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) and British Veterinary Dental Association (BVDA) exam in March 2015.
I am fully insured and a full member of the British Association Equine Dental Technicians (BAEDT).
I have a very quiet and gentle approach and aim to work on all equines without sedation, however if an animal requires sedation due to the severity of work or wolf tooth removal this can be arranged.
Routine dental treatments are essential to ensure the horse is comfortable and able to eat correctly. Every equine including field companions should be seen a minimum of once a year to ensure problems are caught early. Competition horses should be seen twice a year (every 6 months) to ensure they are comfortable and performing to the best of their ability.
I currently have two horses and regularly compete with both in eventing, show jumping and all riding club activities. They are called Noodles and Minnie (she is my profile picture).
