Equine dentistry has seen major advances in recent years and Rainbow have been at the forefront. Hospital referrals from veterinary surgeons or equine dental technicians are seen by Moses Brennan who is well respected in the field of equine dentistry and has extensive experience of oral and head surgery.
Joe Mackinder sees cases in the hospital as well as on the road and is currently studying towards attaining Advanced Practitioner Status in Equine Dentistry (the Certificate in Equine Dentistry). He is a BAEDT accredited dental technician and is starting to train other members of staff to attain this qualification.
The hospital is equipped with:
- Computed tomography for accurate diagnosis
- Cutting edge extraction techniques and equipment
- Minimally invasive Steinman pin repulsion
- Minimally invasive transbuccal extraction
- Oral endoscopy
On the road vets may also suggest that more advanced dental procedures are performed at the hospital. All of our on-the-road vets are experienced in equine dentistry and have undergone additional training in this area.
