Dentistry

WE ARE HORSE DENTISTS!

Im000279.jpg

State of the Art dentistry. We sedate all horses, do a full oral exam, and use personalized dental charts. We use a headlight, full-mouth speculum, head stand, and powerfloat to float teeth. We also have specialized hand dremels for more detailed dental work including bit seats, incisor and hook corrections, and canine reductions. We have a digital x-ray machine if radiographs are needed of the mandible or maxilla, teeth or skull.

Unlike lay dentists (non-veterinarian dentists), our doctors and are fully licensed, insured and trained to perform equine dentals and sedate your horse.  Because we are also doctors, we can also perform exams, diagnose and prescribe medications if needed, give any pain meds if needed, perform nerve blocks during specialized procedures, and take radiographs. Dr. Traci Hulse has also taken an advanced dentistry course in extractions.
