Oral extraction techniques have been shown to cause much fewer post-interventional complications in horses compared to surgical extraction techniques.  Performing oral dental extractions should however not be taken lightly as complications like dental fractures, retained root tips, collateral damage etc. can easily occur and require in-depth anatomical knowledge, good technical skills and clinical versatility to resolve.  This 2-day highly practical boutique course (max. 24 attendees) is aimed at practitioners with a good working knowledge in equine dentistry who want to learn about various oral dental extraction techniques, how to apply them clinically and managing arising complications.  The panel of internationally renowned specialists will be sharing technical tips and tricks and pearls of wisdom that they have accumulated over the many years of working in equine dental practice.

Between both afternoons the 7 hours of practical sessions will provide an intimate environment for attendees to develop their practical skills on equine specimens in true small groups (2-3 vets per specimen) at the following stations:

  • Oral Examination & Endoscopy
  • Diagnostic Imaging – Radiography etc.
  • Local Anesthetic Techniques (incl. TMJ)
  • Incisor & Canine Extractions      
  • Oral Extraction Techniques for Cheek Teeth I     
  • Oral Extraction Techniques for Cheek Teeth II

The course fee includes lunches, coffee/tea breaks, extensive course notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions).  On the evening of the first day all attendees are invited to attend the wine and cheese reception. Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available.

Dr. Brad Tanner found his passion for horses at a young age on his family’s farm in Kentucky. He obtained a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Kentucky in 2001, followed by veterinary school at Auburn University, graduating in 2005.   After graduation Brad completed an ambulatory internship at Rood and Riddle, the following year became an associate and served as the resident veterinarian for Shadwell farm.  Dr. Tanner became a shareholder in the practice in 2012. He is one of very few Board-Certified Veterinary Dentist™ and a Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College.

His ambulatory practice is largely focused on dentistry, Thoroughbred reproduction, neonatal/ foal medicine and herd health.  Dr. Tanner has a large referral case load for advanced dentistry and surgical procedures with an interest in sinus disease.  He serves on many committees in organized medicine for the AVMA, AAEP, KAEP and College of Veterinary Dentistry. Dr. Tanner is published in both the areas of reproduction and dentistry and frequently lectures at local, national and international scientific meetings.

He is married with two sons and enjoys spending time outside on their farm in Versailles and raising Thoroughbred foals.  Away from the farm he enjoys coaching youth baseball/ basketball and attending live sporting events-UK sports, horse racing and baseball games.

Dr. Limone earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and her veterinary medical degree from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation from veterinary school, she completed an internship in medicine and surgery at New England Equine Medical and Surgical Center in Dover, NH. She then joined a mixed practice in Connecticut that focused on advanced dentistry, and her interest was sparked.

A Massachusetts native, Dr. Limone returned home and has been a general equine practitioner on the north shore and southern New Hampshire since 2009. Her caseload and interest has become increasingly focused on dentistry over that time, and she began working on a fellowship in equine dentistry with the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry (AVD) in 2010. There are currently only 6 veterinarians worldwide who have accomplished this level of professional achievement. In 2014, the American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC) established a formal equine dentistry residency program for specialty board certification.  Dr. Limone transitioned from working towards the fellowship to pursuing requirements for the residency program with the goal being to attain board certification (equine veterinary dentist) in the American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC).  In 2018 Dr. Limone completed the residency program, fulfilling caseload and publication requirements, as well as passing both written and practical exams to become a diplomate of the AVDC for equine specialty.

Dr. Limone is a member of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), the veterinary profession's premier organization for the scientific advancement of equine veterinary medicine and professional support. She also serves on the Welfare and Public Policy Advisory Committee for AAEP. Dr. Limone is an active member of the Massachusetts Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA), serving as Treasurer in 2018 and also serves on their Legislative Committee. She is a member of the American Veterinary Dental Society (AVDS) which promotes and advances veterinary dentistry in general and is currently expanding to establish equine dentistry as a recognized practice specialty. Dr. Limone regularly attends continuing education events focusing on this rapidly advancing facet of veterinary medicine. Dr. Limone also enjoys volunteering with spay/neuter surgeries for the MSPCA at Nevins Farm.

Dr. Limone holds licenses to practice veterinary medicine in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and Florida.
