Your Horse's mouth is in safe hands
The Equine Dental Surgery is dedicated to gold standard dental care for your horse. We provide a complete, comprehensive service ranging from routine dental treatments including routine rasping and wolf teeth extractions through to advanced treatments such as oroscopy, radiography (x-rays), diastema or periodontal disease treatment and management, restorative endodontics (fillings) and extractions.
Dental disease is not always confined to the mouth, it can cause problems within the sinuses. At The Equine Dental Surgery we have the experience and expertise to diagnose and successfully treat sinusitis.
All of our equipment including x-ray, is mobile and can be brought straight to your horse’s stable. We provide dental care for the followings counties: Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, London, Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire. Although if you are based farther afield please do get in touch as we may make exceptions. For more advanced procedures requiring the use of stocks, we may ask you to bring your horse to one of the clinics we operate from. This is to ensure the highest standard of care is provided for your horse.

The equine dental surgery was founded by and is owned and run by Veterinary Surgeon, Dr Kieran Rowley.

Georgina Nixon RVN
Georgina first started working in veterinary practice as a trainee veterinary nurse in 2002, she studied at Berkshire College of Agriculture and went on to qualify in 2004.
Georgina has worked in a busy first opinion, mixed practice for many years and then decided to take a break when an opportunity came up for her to travel abroad with her horse to focus on her dressage training in 2011.
After returning to the UK she continued to focus on training horses for clients and running yards, then in 2015 returned to nursing at an equine practice. Her main interests have always been poor performance and lameness issues. But she also loves diagnostic imaging and scoping, both endoscopy and gastroscopy. Another main interest is rehabilitation and how to work with horses following injury or surgery to get them back to full fitness.
Georgina has been working for Kieran at The Equine Dental Surgery since the beginning of 2021. Dentistry wasn’t really an area in which Georgina thought she would see herself heading, however the different cases continue to give her plenty of variety to her working week and has really been enjoying learning more whilst working alongside Kieran.
Dr Lizz Plowright MRCVS
Lizz grew up in Spain and studied Veterinary Medicine at the University of Córdoba where she graduated in 2013. She then moved back to the UK and completed a 12-month Internship at the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket. Lizz then spent 5 years working for the University of Cambridge as an Equine Ambulatory Clinician where she treated thousands of horses and ponies and taught all aspects of veterinary medicine to vet students. It was during her time here that she developed a keen interest in equine dentistry and she attended many dentistry courses, CPDs and conferences and received many hours of additional dentistry training from world leading dental specialists to improve her professional knowledge and skills.
In 2020 Lizz left general practice to focus purely on equine dentistry. She joined The Equine Dental Surgery in February 2022 working with Kieran on a part time basis alongside her own business. Thanks to Lizz’s wealth of equine knowledge through owning and riding horses from a very young age, and years of experience in dentistry, veterinary medicine, lameness, anatomy, nutrition, and general horse care and management, you can be confident your horse is receiving quality care and treatment.
