Plumpton College in East Sussex has been validated for a new equine dentistry degree, which will be offered as a part-time course over a period of four years.
The course has been designed to ensure students have the theoretical knowledge and practical application required.
Many students will enter the profession as entrepreneurs once they also attain the professional British Association of Equine Dental Technicians (BAEDT) qualification.
The course is made up of bespoke modules including:
- equine cranial anatomy and physiology
- recording and undertaking equine dental practice
- lorinary and cranial conformation
- professional conduct for equine dentistry
Students will also undertake a final project, which will enable them to research an area in equine dentistry.
The degree is offered over four years as a part-time course. This allows the students to have two full years working alongside a registered equine dental technician combined with two years in college.
