Professional service
What we do. 

Equine Veterinary Dentist provides a modern dedicated approach to equine dentistry.  The only Advanced practitioner in Equine Dentistry in the North East. 


James Roxburgh MRCVS BVM&S Cert AVP(ED) is a qualified vet providing on yard mobile dental services for horses in the North of England and Scotland. 

Equine Veterinary Dentist provides a complete dental service from routine procedures including rasping, balancing of teeth and wolf tooth extraction, through to advance referral procedures. To provide a gold standard of dental services we have invested in state of the art equipment, technology, training and the latest techniques.

We encourage horses to have a small sedative to provide a relaxed, safe and modern dental examination.  The horses’ head is then rested on a padded headstand to facilitate a highly detailed oral examination with any corrective treatments carried out quickly and efficiently, minimizing stress for the owner, horse and vet. After every visit each client will recieve an electronic dental record chart.

Dental examinations can be carried out without sedative in quiet horses, however in many cases this will compromise both the detailed oral examination and corrective treatments - especially at the back of the horses narrow mouth. 

*All treatments are full insured and covered by professional indemnity insurance.

About James.

James Roxburgh MRCVS BVM&S CertAVP(ED) pgSVS

Since a young age I have always had a real interest in dentistry and this developed throughout my university career, winning the Joe Frazer equine soft tissue award at the Royal (Dick) Veterinary College. To date I have spent 10 years achieving training and expertise to become a dedicated equine veterinary dentist.

In 2019 I achieved advanced practitioner status in Equine Dentistry, completing my certificate through the University of Liverpool and passing the dental exam with distinction.  I am currently the only Advanced equine dental practitioner in the whole of the North East.

Since graduating I have advanced my dental training, attending multiple equine dental courses from world leading dental specialists. I also completed the advanced dental extraction course in November 2016, including becoming trained in the Minimally Invasive Transbuccal Screw Extraction technique for complex cheek tooth extractions.

Event Rider

James has been our vet dentist for the last couple of years. In that time he has successfully treated a wide range of horses with various dental issues.


Whilst he is incredibly knowledgable, he explains everything clearly and is very approachable. 

The horse respond in kind to his calm manner and even my top horse Dolly doesn't mind his visits! He offers a very professional service and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
