Grant Chanter Equine Dentist

The dental practice, which started in 2000, covers Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, London, North Devon and West Somerset.

All of our Equine Dental Technicians have qualified through the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) dental exam and are or have been members of the British Association of Equine Dental Technicians (BAEDT). We all have had a wide range of equine experience which we feel is essential. This experience enables us to handle the horse in a patient and professional manner allowing us to perform the majority of our work without sedation (only approx 1% of our patients need sedation).

We like to use manual floats (rasps) and power instruments depending on what suits the individual horse's needs. Due to the advance in technology power instruments can be used in unsedated horses very safely. However, the horse will be sedated by a vet if we feel the safety of the horse is at risk or if we are unable to carry out the work to the highest standard required for the individual. The equine's safety is our primary concern! Please note that the passing of The BEVA dentistry exam allows us to use power tools. Hand floats still have their place with horses who may be unsettled by power instruments, but we would not recommend their use in geriatric mouths nor in some of the advanced cases that we see.

The practice likes to work closely with many vet practices who use or respect the owners wish to use properly trained EDT's specialising in this field of work. As a result we believe that there is a greatly enhanced professional trust between the vet, horse owner and EDT which can only benefit the welfare of the equine.

Grant and his team also offer bitting advice as part of the service we provide. Grant has always had an interest in bitting and once had his own bit bank and also attends regular bitting courses run by The Worshipful Company of Lorriners and other impartial training providers.. This service seems to be very popular for those clients who have bitting issues/injuries.

The company is detemined to minimise the impact it has on the environment. A copy of the Environmental and Sustainability statement can be seen here.
