Will there be help while I am a student?

Every student has access to a private forum. Only enrolled students and graduates have access top this after they login on the school’s website.

Why this works is because everyone will be able to learn from the questions asked. In addition, it is a place to go to every day that you are a student to find out what was asked overnight. A lot can be learned this way.

How long will it take to become good at equine dentistry?

This question is very personal. The purpose of the school is to give you a solid foundation to grow on and start a career. The bottleneck in your growth is you and your ability to believe that you can do what we do. I personally have become better since I have mentored Melissa and started this school.

One of the basic tenants of this school is to develop students into amazing equine dentists and we will encourage you as well as challenge you. But we will never push you to move faster than you feel comfortable in moving within the school.

Can I make a living at equine dentistry?

Yes. There are over 100 million horses, asses, and mules in the world – all with teeth that continually erupt and sharpen with every chew and lick from the tongue. While there are many equine dentists in the world, this school will also teach integrity and horsemanship skills that will separate you from others whose standards and abilities may not be as good as yours.

In my practice today, there are many weekly requests for the style of dentistry we teach at this school. Horse owners everywhere are increasingly looking for dentists that do not automatically drug their horses or use a speculum, immobilize their horses, or use power equipment.

Horsemanship Dentistry is active through social media, blogs, articles, live events, and personal contacts in educating horse owners everywhere that there is a better way to perform dentistry on their horses.

The movement has begun and hence there is a greater demand for Horsemanship Dentistry.

How long does it take to complete the school? Is there a time limit?

There is no time limit for completing the coursework and graduating. The course does progress from start to finish, one course unit at a time but there is no time limit for each unit. The units are sequential so there is no skipping around but you can take as long as you want. Your access to the material will not end. The only exception is the final exam which is a timed unit.

There are about 82 course units and each may take on average 1 hour if studied and comprehended. In addition there are many hours of videos in the resource section.

Depending on your current knowledge, it may take a veterinarian or trained equine dentist a week or two while someone learning this for the first time may need a month to complete the studies.

You will need to add 5 days (plus travel) for the hands on training in Florida.
