2018 CALENDAR OF EVENTS Educational Seminar- All 2018 Seminars will held at the FENCE House Dr. Jamie Ashbrook will present information on dentistry in the horse on March 21st. The presentation will include discussing what dentistry means and why there is a need for proper dental care in the horse. There will be information on why veterinarians should play an important role in the dental assessment of the horse, and how this can ultimately lead to preventative care. Come join our discussion to gain a better understanding of what dentistry really consists of in the horse and how it is so much more than just “floating.” Dr. Jamie Ashbrook graduated from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in May of 2016. She then completed a year long ambulatory/hospital internship at Brazos Valley Equine Hospital in Salado, Texas. Currently, Dr. Ashbrook is an associate at Freer Equine Mobile Veterinary Services in Tryon, NC. She has come to develop a special interest in equine dentistry since it plays such a pivotal role in maintaining the overall health of the horse. Dr Ashbrook has named TROT as her charity-of-choice for all honorarium and donations at her lecture.
