FdSc Equine Dentistry

Plumpton College in East Sussex has recently been validated for a new Equine Dentistry degree, which is specifically for those who wish to enter the profession.

The course has been designed to ensure students have the theoretical knowledge and practical application required for the industry.  Many students will enter the profession as entrepreneurs once they also attain the professional BAEDT (British Association of Equine Dental Technicians) qualification.

The course is made up of bespoke modules including Equine Cranial Anatomy and Physiology, Recording & Undertaking Equine Dental Practice, Lorinary & Cranial Conformation and Professional Conduct for Equine Dentistry.  Students will also undertake a final project which will enable them to research an area within equine dentistry.

The equine dentistry degree is offered over four years as a part time course.  This allows the students to have two full years in industry working alongside a registered equine dental technician combined with two years in college.
