Students will learn the skills required to not only Float the Buccal and lingual aspects of the Equine’s Dentition, but also correct the malocclusions associated with the Equine’s Dentition in a captured environment. A certain level of Horsemanship is required, and will also be instructed, in order to perform these manipulations. Graduating students can expect to seek job offers in the Veterinarian Technician field specializing in Equine Dentistry, job offers from Equine Dental Professionals as an Equine Dental Assistant, as
well as building a business as a self-employed practitioner seeking a license from the Texas Veterinary Board of Medical Examiners. This license will be attainable following
the Final Semester of this program for qualified candidates.
