Not to hijack the thread but I have a ?
Do you have to be an actual vet to be an equine dentist, or can you go through dental school and be a certified dentist without having veterinary training?

The latter, you can do it without any vet training, however you cannot administer sedation.

Duffy 50%?? OMG.

Not in the UK. In the UK if you are not a student then tax works in bands.
No matter who you are you pay no tax on the first 7475
after that you pay 20% on any earnings up to 35k,
after that it is 40% on the money between 35K and 150K.
50% on anything more then 150K

so if you earn 40K
You pay no tax on 7475,
20% of the next 27525
and 40% of the final 5000

Plus your national insurance tax.

So oout of 40K you would take home just under 30K

What sucks, is that in Oklahoma, you have to have a vet do it. Even if you are a certified equine dentist, you cannot practice. I believe its because of the drug they use to kinda knock the horses out a little, in too high of a dose it can kill the horse. Then again, that's just what I think it is. The bad part is most vet schools only skim over the dentistry part.

Over here you do not need to be a vet to do dentistry, however you do need to be a vet to sedate the horse.
so if the horse needs sedating then you call the vet, vet sedates and then the dentist does the work on thier teeth.

I had a good equine dentist but one or two of the Good Ole Boy vets in my county ran him out because he was sedating the horses and that is illegal in my state of Tennessee. Not sure if that applies to the entire U.S. or not.

Not being able to sedate and having to rely on a vet to work with you could be a sticky wickett. You'd be surprised the vets that don't like to do dental work but don't want anyone else "cashing in" either

My current vet is fairly new in the county, has a portable x-ray that didn't come from WalMart and modern electronic dental equipment that didn't come from the CVS drug store chain

I think your idea is a great one but just be sure that the sedating side can be resolved somehow, so you don't have to rely on a vet

walkinthewalk, in the UK there is no way of resolving the sedation side it is illegal for anyone other then a fully registered liscenced vet to sedate.

That said most vets in the UK activly encourage the use of specialist dentists and will reccomend one if you ask, they also happily reccomend physios or chiros.

Nope, you don't have to be one to become a dentist. Some vets I know specialize in dentistry on top of usual vet practice, but not every vet.

faye, it's interesting to know about UK. While in college I had to pay taxes. You can get some return when you file the tax return (because the income is so low), but still.
