About Clinton Float
I graduated from Murdoch University in 2002 with a degree in Veterinary Medicine and Surgery after having started my university studies in agriculture at Muresk in Northam. I went into equine practice after graduation here in WA.
Having gained experience in equine practice in Western Australia, my wife Sarah, (also a vet) and I decided to travel to the UK with a view to staying for one to two years. We returned eleven years later! In lovely Suffolk, I became a partner in a large, well established, forward thinking equine practice that serviced four counties and offered exceptional equine care. As the practice continued to grow and expand each partner developed their own special interest areas. Dentistry has always been an area of interest for me, perhaps in part because my brother is a human dentist! We now collaborate quite often and I’m constantly looking to the human dental field to expand my knowledge base and improve techniques.
While I was in the UK I took full advantage of the opportunity to attend a number of courses run by recognized experts in equine dentistry in the UK, Germany, Sweden and France. The advances in knowledge, equipment, and techniques makes dentistry an exciting field of veterinary surgery in which to be involved. I also gained a secondary qualification in equine dentistry called a BAEDT. This qualification is awarded jointly by the British Veterinary Association and the British Veterinary Dental Association. It is a very tough and thorough process to gain the BAEDT culminating in practical and theoretical examinations taken at the University of Bristol’s Veterinary School.
Moving home to the South West in 2015 was an exciting time. The start of Pegasus Veterinary Equine Dentistry has been a dream of mine. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to do what I love every day. My aim is to provide the best possible dental care for all horses, ponies and donkeys. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the impact that healthy dentition has on the overall health and well being of our equine friends.
