With the only board-certified equine veterinary dentist in Northern Colorado on staff, our team provides comprehensive dental, oral, and maxillofacial care to equine and livestock patients. Specializing in in-hospital procedures, access to advanced technology and collaboration with the hospital’s anesthesia team allows us to assess and treat more complex dental and oral conditions.

Every appointment includes an extraoral exam and scope-guided intraoral exam, radiographs, and float (if needed). Regardless of appointment type, sedation is always necessary to ensure a safe and effective examination and/or procedure.


  • Exam appointment (includes extraoral exam, scope-guided intraoral exam, radiographs, float [if needed], and anesthesia) – starts at $850
