Project Description

Dentistry and oral surgery

Tom Williams’ interest in veterinary dentistry started when a European Specialist in this discipline visited our hospital and used our facilities to provide training to local vets.

Following this, Tom enjoyed taking on the more challenging dental cases within the Group. This interest then led to a chance trip to Agra, India where he worked in a team of veterinary and human dentists performing root canal treatments on rescued ex-dancing bears. It was an inspirational trip and once home and back at the practice, Tom decided to work towards further qualifications in veterinary dentistry and oral surgery.

In 2018 Tom passed the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Surgeons’ membership exam that recognised him as a vet that works to a high level of competence in dentistry and oral surgery. He is also the Education Officer for the British Veterinary Dental Association.

Tom welcomes referral cases in this field.

Charter Vets offers referral and second opinion veterinary dentistry and oral surgery to dog and cat owners in the south west.

We provide a complete advanced veterinary dental service at our practices across North Devon. View a recent case study of Brachycephalic Airway surgery undertaken  by Tom here.
