A picture speaks 1,000 words. Look at the incisor correction below. There are very few people in California that have the skill level necessary to do this level of work.  ”Experience you can rely on.” Extensive work is accomplished through staging, usually not just one visit. This ensures the viability of the tooth, too much odontoplasty at once can cause damage to the tooth and death.

Day-Ride

The main reason that I got into this line of work is that I truly love horses and always want to do the best that I can do to improve their quality of life.

Giving Back to the community:

I am available for speaking engagements for Horse Riding Clubs, Equestrian Centers, 4H , local colleges ,schools and other such organizations. I usually do this at no charge.
In some cases I may request travel cost be covered. This will be decided on a case by case basis.

Our focus of offering routine and advanced equine dentistry is to compliment your current Veterinarians services not compete with them. Have your regular veterinarian inquire with us about our Veterinarian to Veterinarian Referral Program.
