What Does BEVA / BAEDT Accredited Mean?

Currently a wide variety of lay people perform equine dental procedures, including some very inexperienced people, who have minimal training but nevertheless perform advanced dental procedures. This can be detrimental to a horse’s health and welfare and on some occasions, can cause serious, even life-threatening injuries to horses' jaws, mouths and throats.

Proper legislation and regulation is sadly lacking at present. However, there is an organisation, namely the British Association of Equine Dental Technicians (BAEDT) whose members have voluntarily signed up to and passed a rigorous written and practical exam. Also itis a condition that candidates must submit 300 case studies before being allowed to sit the exam. This exam is coordinated and overseen by the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA), the national organisation representing equine veterinarians. Thus by sitting this exam, a dental technician has proven a greater level of proficiency and dedication to their profession and to remain a member of the BAEDT they must continue to expandand improve their knowledge through continued professional development (CPD).

Another requirement for membership of the BAEDT is full professional indemnity insurance. Many unaccredited EDTs will be working without this.

A few equine vets have also seen the benefit of furthering their skills and have similarly chosen to sit the exam and subsequently specialise in dentistry.
