JULY 9th, 2021 CLINIC REVIEW CAEDP delivered another quality Equine Dental Workshop. Debbie Spears Cdn-EqDP, hosted the event, held at her cattle/equine facility outside of Blue Ridge, Alberta, (south of Whitecourt). Cavan McMullan Cdn-CMEqDP and Grant MacKinnon Cdn-CAEqDP, each demonstrated the use of equipment they personally choose to balance a horse’s mouth and passed on some of the tips they picked up through the years. Both were available for Certification Letters of Recommendation. We are happy to announce we will have a large group of qualified equine dentists to certify on August 12th! Congratulations!

Each horse will be afforded balance at the end of each session.
Clinic Review: By all accounts, the Certification Proficiency Examination Preparation Clinic, held this past weekend was a great success! “The Anchor D Outfitters, outdid themselves”; “there were plenty of horses to choose from”; “the instruction was top-notch” and “every participant was eager to learn something”… it doesn’t get any better than that!
The clinic started Friday afternoon with six in attendance, just west of Turner Valley, Alberta. Participants set up their stations quickly and the lecture kicked off on time. “The group was nothing but professional,” says Dewey Mathews, owner of the facility, “they turned me into a real believer!”
The next two days were filled with a nice balance of enthusiasm and intense, group discussions, personal evaluations, equipment checks, technique comparisons, and learning the fine are of balancing a horse’s mouth. Those in attendance not only enjoyed a good hot lunch but were invited in for supper, where the discussions carried into each night.
A nice compliment to every event ends with another list being etched from those who attended, signing up to attend for the “next one”…
