Biog & More Information

Mat Carter grew up in a very ‘horsey’ family, his mother owning a successful riding school and livery yard, so it was a natural progression for Mat to choose a career in the horse industry. After extensive research he decided on dentistry and first attended the American School of Equine Dentistry in 1998, where he continued to travel to the states for the next 4 years, attending several international conferences during this time.

In 2001 Mat sat the first British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) / British Veterinary Dental Association (BVDA) exam in order to gain his DEFRA Category 2 exemption certificate. He also helped to form the British Association of Equine Dental Technicians (BAEDT) at this time, which aims to improve the quality and training of EDTs and therefore improve the welfare of the horse. Mat served on the Council as treasurer for the following 3 years and also initiated and implicated the training courses for EDTs wishing to sit the BEVA/BVDA exams. In addition he has trained other EDTs who are now qualified and run successful equine dental practices of their own.

Mat worked nationwide, including in Northern Ireland for several years, but now is based in Staffordshire and concentrates on the Midlands area.

Mat has been looking after my horse for many years and my one previously. He is very professional and so good and gentle with the horses. My previous mare had needed sedation for any dental treatment needing to be carried out prior to Mat seeing her, but Mat won her over almost straight away and was so caring that we never looked back. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an equine dentist.

Can't fault Matt for keeping appointments and timekeeping. Very professional together with being friendly and approachable. Impressed with how Matt handled our welsh x youngster for the first time with no problem at all. We also have 3 Miniature Shetlands that Matt is great with (on his knees)! I like the fact that Matt knows their history and is genuinely interested in them. I know many people who also use Matt Carter and he is highly regarded and respected.

For the many years I have usedl Matt Carter, I have always found him to be thorough, sympathetic, professional and always has the horses welfare as a priority. TThe range of horses that he has treated for me go from an 11.2" older pony, a nervous 16.2" that was scared of men ( Matt handled him beautifully and soon gained his trust) to an 18hh 5yr old that Matt has been working on for 3yrs now. Could never ask for a better professional and informative service.

after using mat to check rasp etc my horses teeth i wouldn't use anyone else. Before mat i tried both a dentist and a vet neither managed to complete their work without sedation or first aid required to vet/dentist. my horse is both calmer and happier being treated by mat he clearly has a calming influence on horses. i always recommend his services when asked.

Mat has done work on my horses both at my yard and at the vets. At all times he is quiet and confident treating the horses with the utmost respect and they loved him. My old girl, who I had described as a nightmare was putty in his hands and the extensive treatment that Mat did has given her a new lease on life. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
