Equine Dentistry Schools and Colleges in the U.S.

Equine dentistry is a veterinary specialty offered as an emphasis area in some Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) programs, rather than as a stand-alone degree program at a veterinary school. In the final year of residence while enrolled in a DVM program, a student can specialize in equine science and dentistry.

How to Select an Equine Dentistry School

A DVM program usually takes four years to complete. The first three years of enrollment cover veterinary science. During the final year a student begins to specialize and complete clerkships. During the equine dentistry specialization, students learn about equine science and maintaining healthy teeth in horses.

Consider the following when looking for equine dentistry schools:

  • A student's choice of an equine dentistry program largely focuses on the programs' amount and variation of equine courses.
  • Look for programs whose equine science clerkships place vet students at medical centers or clinics that focus on varying aspects of the health and diseases of horses and ponies.
  • Prospective equine dentistry students should also consider the types of clinical experiences offered in the clinical components of the program.
