SKILLS & ACCREDITATIONS

I am a fully qualified Equine dental technician having passed the joint British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) and British Veterinary Dental Association (BVDA) exams. I am also very involved in the British Association Equine Dental technicians where I was a council member for six years and have worked tirelessly on promoting Equine dentistry and their regulation with Defra in the UK. I also set up the Equine Dental Journal for the BAEDT and continue to support the current council with their dedication to the industry.

I have been lucky to turn my passion into my career.  I had very supportive parents who were not overly horsey, but got my great love from my Estonian grandmother who grew up on a farm and even rode her horse to school. My parents were driven mad by my love and my father especially pushed me to go to Agricultural College where I had a wonderful time and gained my Equine Diploma and British Horse Society Exams. I worked on various horsey jobs and returned home to run my parents farm and livery stables, where some 18 years ago, my dental career started.

I travelled to the USA and studied at the Academy of Equine Dentistry, where I became a fully certified  EDT. This took several years and I met some amazing people. I also owe a huge amount to Dale Jeffrey at Glenns Ferry for my great start in equine dentistry. I still support the school and hope to go back there one day to teach. After working with many other qualified equine dental technicians, I passed the BEVA/BVDA exams and joined the BAEDT British Association of Equine Dental Technicians.
