Board Certified Equine Veterinary Dentist™

A Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College® (AVDC®) is a veterinarian who has been certified by AVDC® as having demonstrated specialist knowledge and expertise in veterinary dentistry as a result of completing the AVDC® training requirements and having successfully passed the AVDC® examination.

AVDC® is recognized as the specialist certification organization in veterinary dentistry in North America by the American Board of Veterinary Specialties. AVDC® diplomates are veterinary dental specialists.

In 2014 the American Veterinary Dental College®’s Equine Dental Specialty was formally recognized as a specialty for those veterinarians with advanced dental training for horses and other equids.   

With the acceptance of the new equine specialty, existing diplomates may refer as to themselves as non-species specific or as a small animal veterinary dental specialist.  

Dental specialists with advanced zoo and wildlife certification will be noted by a Tiger symbol.
