I am a Virginia Registered Equine Dental Technician specializing in Traditional Hand Floating. I provide equine dentistry services throughout the Northern and Piedmont Virginia region and Maryland. My work also takes me to many locations including Colorado, Florida and overseas to Germany.
I graduated from the University of Maine with an animal science degree in 1977. I apprenticed as an equine dentist while still living in Maine. Upon completing my training I moved to the mid-Atlantic area and began practicing equine dentistry at the Charles Town racetrack in West Virginia. Soon afterwards I began serving private horse farms in northern and central Virginia and Maryland.
I have been a member of the International Association of Equine Dentistry (IAED) since 1989. As an IAED member, I have:
- Served as the IAED’s treasurer and as a board member at large;
- Helped develop the IAED’s original certification program; and
- Helped initiate the development of regulations in Virginia that require all equine dental technicians to become registered within the state of Virginia.
I am currently certified through the International Association of Equine Dentistry and I am registered with the state of Virginia.
