The certification program is a new and improved structure that
encompasses three levels:
- Level 1 horse dentist
- Level 2 horse dentist
- Level 3 horse dentist
The certification is Louis' answer to the present unsatisfactory
situation in the field of horse dentistry - for professional horse
dentists as well as for horse owners. Standards and regulations are
missing. It is as difficult for horse owners to tell who is a qualified
horse dentist and who isn't, as it is unfavorable for highly qualified
practitioners not to have a "quality seal" for their professional
services. The new certification process is Louis contribution to
providing top level education with a sure proof of qualification that
can easily be demonstrated and recognized.
The four week course "Level 1 horse dentist" already provides a
solid foundation to become a successful practitioner. It enables you
to take care of all regular dental problems. "Level 2 horse dentist"
and "Level 3 horse dentist" are advanced training modules that cover special
problem areas, i.e. advanced procedures and complex cases. They require
a high level of monitored practice on more difficult cases and a large
number of documented case studies. They are designed for those who
wish to expand their knowledge to special areas of horse dentistry.
Level 2 and 3 will give you the background and the confidence to treat
complex cases with top quality.
Becoming a certified horse dentist will provide you not only with
expertise and experience, it will also significantly add to your
credibility as a professional. The certification makes it easy for
you to demonstrate that you work according to top standards in horse
dentistry. Your name will also be added to our
list of certified dentists on this website.
