It is very important that whoever you have to come and check your horses teeth holds a recognised qualification and relevant insurance to cover equine dental treatments (please ask to see these documents). Currently, the law in England is that anyone can purchase tools and practice as an Equine Dentist. Please ensure your dentist is registered with either of these organsiation: The World Wide Association of Equine Dentistry (http://wwaed.org.uk/) or the British Association Of Equine Dental Technicians (http://www.baedt.com/).
