The Dentistry School Is Official

The Equine Dentistry School Online now has several students with 2 that have completed the school and one that has visited south Florida for the practical.

These pictures are of Debra Tibbitts, DVM. She is the owner of Healing Hands Equine Mobile Veterinary Service in Queen Creek, Arizona.

This is what Debra says about her experience with equine dentistry and why she enrolled in the school:

“I am used to partnering with the horse in my other holistic modalities which is not possible with the style of dentistry I have been practicing since 2001. And sometimes felt like I was betraying the trust I had built with the horse (by giving them no choice).”

“When I first encountered your website and philosophy over a year ago, I disagreed with what you said and thought it was not possible for me to do a proper job on the teeth your way. But then I kept ‘bumping’ into you on the web and digging a little deeper each time as something was bugging me. Then this last time when you popped up on a search while I was doing research for my e-book on dentistry, I saw that you had taken a stand for your style and beliefs and had put together informational downloads and an entire online dentistry course. I downloaded the freebie but quickly picked up the intro course. Then I asked you a TON of questions and took the leap to enroll. I sensed your sincerity and integrity and what you said resonated with me.”

“When I think I’ve found a ‘better way’ I want to employ it as soon as possible for my patients and clients as I can’t keep continuing the way I was if I become aware it is not the ‘best way’.”

I am so glad she found us and this style of equine dentistry!

By the way, if you think you need to be big to do this, look at the picture of the 3 of us. It’s not size but technique that allows us to work with animals 5 to 10 times our size.

  1. You can see the horse is relaxed, soft eye, ears sideways and relaxed. Hopefully, Dr. T., more people will join your school and all horses will benefit from the no-drama approach of getting their teeth done. This in turn will allow owners to get their horses teeth done every 6 months instead of yearly or more!!!
