Equine Dental Services offers a reliable, friendly and professional service always striving to achieve the highest possible standards.
We benefit from a wealth of experience brought to us by Colin who has been serving the industry since 1981 and has been privileged to work with some of the biggest names in the equestrian world. Having been through the rigorous training and exam process more recently, Adrian’s knowledge of the most up to date research and techniques is invaluable to the team.
Over many years we have built very good relationships with a number of veterinary practices in the area and take great pride in working alongside them.
From shetlands to shires, and everything in between, and whether your horse is just for pleasure or competing in any sphere, we will treat them with the upmost of care and our work will be to the best of our ability.

As a young man all I ever wanted to do was ride horses. Having ridden a number of difficult horses I was encouraged to work out why they were naughty. In the mid 70s I discovered that equine dental care was an art performed normally by the blacksmith that had been lost during the war and until the 1950s. I was taught my initial craft from two old blacksmiths ” Sam Fryer & an ex army major farrier ” Reg Hollingshead”. I established a small business in the North of England during the 70’s but re located to the Thames Valley in 1981 and after a short period I was introduced to the late Sir Peter Scott Dunn who had always been a very eminent vet in the area. Due to his recommendation my business expanded dramatically over the coming years. I have always taken great interest in the development of the industry always keeping up with the latest techniques and modern day equipment. I am a founder member of the British Association of Equine Dental Technicians and was involved in the development of the examination process. Now in my twilight years I still love my job and all the things that go with it. I spend a great deal of my time now training students and working out of my purpose built dental facility at home.
When I was still in nappies much of my time was spent on top of ponies and this continued into my working life. For a number of years I was lucky enough to have a very successful livery and training establishment. During this time I focused on producing and training young horses. I also had a number of event horses throughout this period competing at various levels. This came to a natural end but I was still desperate to stay working with my four legged friends. This was when a mutual friend of both Mine and Colin’s introduced us and the rest is history!! I began my career as an Equine Dental Technician at “The American School Of Equine Dentistry”. From that day forward I only have Colin to thank for the endless hours of time AND MONEY he has invested in getting me where I am today. I have since successfully passed both the theory and practical elements of the BEVA Exam and am now a full member of the BAEDT and love every minute of my job!! I am now heavily involved in the day to day running of the business so that Colin can have a slightly easier life after many years of physical abuse by horses!!!!
At a very young age it was Mum I have to thank for introducing me to horses. I would have riding lessons on a weekly basis and throughout my school years attended Horse Rangers. I always knew I wanted to base my career around horses but wasn’t quite sure in what area. The penny finally dropped when I visited a friend whilst her dental technician was treating her horses…..from that day forward equine dentistry became my focus. I graduated from Hartpury University with a BSc (hons) Equine Dental Science in 2011. I then started my practical training with Colin and Adrian and sat my practical BEVA Exam in March 2015. I was delighted to pass and also to become a member of the BAEDT.Leave a reply →
