Welcome to Equinedentist.ie

horseMaria began her career in human dentistry in 1992 and then went on to combine her passion for horses with her professional career to qualify as an equine dentist.

Her own horse was treated regularly by an equine dentist so she didn’t think too much about the the problems a horse could develop if they were not treated regularly. However being interested in teeth she decided to do some research and found although decay and periodontal disease is not as common in the horse’s mouth as it is in the human mouth, these days domestic horses suffer from many problems such as poor tooth alignment and irregular chewing patterns which can cause severe pain, digestive difficulty, colic and behavioural and performance problems.
