Passionate about equine dentistry

Where it all began…..

On graduating from Edinburgh Vet School in 2002 I went onto work for 2 years at Pool House Equine Clinic in Lichfield before moving to Shropshire in 2005. I worked as an equine vet for Old Pound Equine Clinic in Much Wenlock before the practice merged in 2011 with Hollybush Vets in Bridgnorth to form Severn Edge Equine.

My interest in equine dentistry started during my time at the Old Pound Equine Clinic. During this time I truly became passionate about the subject attending many specialist veterinary dentistry courses. As a director at Severn Edge Equine Clinic I pushed the dental side of the practice, building up the quality of the routine dentistry and performing the majority of remedial work myself.

Moving forward…..

Over the last 15 years I have been on numerous equine dentistry courses run by both British Equine Veterinary Association and British Association of Equine Dental Technicians, furthering my knowledge and honing my skill set. 

I have attended conferences to gain insights into the latest theories and modern techniques. I have also spent time visiting and working alongside some of the top Equine Dental Vets in the country.

Family life is busy but great fun at the moment, having 3 children Emily, William and Libby between the ages of 9 and 4. Emily and Libby enjoy riding their ponies Mia and Vera with my wife Catrin and her horse Ali. William has more sense than to get involved with ponies and is following his Dad’s other passions, rugby and cycling.

With veterinary work getting more hectic and a busy home life, I decided 2020 was the ideal time to follow my passion and start a new venture, ‘Sanderson Equine Dentistry’.
