President’s Message

In Canada, we are writing a new chapter in the history of equine dentistry. The projects we’ve chosen to take on are very important to the horse industry, the horse owning public, and most importantly the horse. It will change the way balance is performed and accepted, as it relates to equine dentistry. This is moving the industry toward returning to excellence in a craft that finds precision, workmanship, and the art of full mouth balance at its core.

The CAEDP has set forth a Standard of Practice that not only supports Full-Mouth-Balance (or Equilibration), it demands it for the sake of the horse. Through a solid Certification Process, a Wetlab Program, and Continuing Education we are setting the Global Standard for the equine dental industry.

The rules that govern the mouth’s function, are simply driven by basic geometric and engineering principles. Therefore, by returning to the fundamental principles of the craft and promoting it through educating the horse owners, it will eventually benefit the overall health of horses Globally.

This Canadian group of experienced equine dental practitioners are prepared to provide evidence-based theories and techniques that reach back Centuries in time, tried and true, when tradition demanded excellence. The CAEDP and its members are passionate about equine dentistry and we are advancing it as a profession on its own merit.
