“An accomplished horseman”

David has been attending my yard, Gamston Wood Livery Ltd, for the last seven years.
Gamston Wood is a full livery yard offering schooling, rehabilitation and coaching.
David has been a key player in assisting us with behavioural problems, managing loss of weight, assisting young horses with growing teeth as well has helping the veteran horses on the yard.
Over the years I have trained apprentices, with whom David has encouraged to assist, advised and given confidence too as well as educated.
David is also an accomplished horseman, calming the most nervous as well as persuading the less helpful, often going out of his way to provide help that’s needed.
There has never been a complaint or a criticism from myself or my owners for his outstanding service, only gratitude when a horse’s welfare and way of going is improved.

“It made a big difference”

"That's The Deal was the oldest runner in the field for the 2m7.5f handicap chase, and an unfancied 25-1 shot, but clearly nobody told the 13-year-old as he jumped his rivals into submission.
John Cornwall's veteran made all under Ben Poste, and a fine round of jumping secured a nine-length win as well as a ninth success over fences.
The trainer felt a visit from the equine dentist had worked wonders. He said: "Last Monday David Waters came in and treated his teeth and it made a big difference.
"Once he gets in a rhythm he'll jump all day long - that's his strong point. He just loves doing it."

“We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend”

We have a mixed private herd of 8 horses, ranging from 7.2hh up to 19.2hh of various breeds and temperaments. David has looked after all our horses’ teeth with professionalism and care for several years now, always adjusting his approach to the situation to keep everything calm and safe. He never does anything which does not need doing, but likewise he ensures that what needs to be done is carried out properly to keep them healthy. He has an excellent manner with the horses and is a pleasure to have on the yard. All of our horses go back to him after treatment for a fuss, testament to his handling skills. David takes the time to explain exactly what is going on with the horses, explains the anatomy and any issues he comes across in a way that is easily understandable. We know that our horse’s welfare is in safe hands with David, we trust his judgement and skill and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

“Reliable and professional”

Having worked alongside David for the last 18 years, he has been invaluable to the clients of our veterinary practice. He is both reliable and professional and I would have no reservations in recommending him for all aspects of equine dental work.
David has also given up his free time voluntarily to work on abandoned and neglected horses ranging from Shires to Shetlands which come through our charity which is greatly appreciated. David works tirelessly to perform first class dental work on every equine patient and I cannot speak highly enough of him.

“Great knowledge and horsemanship”

I would highly recommend David he has great knowledge and horsemanship. He is patient with our more nervous horses and does a very thorough job.

“Thank you David, you worked a miracle.”

Having bred Irish draught horses for many years we had never come across a 3yr old with bad teeth problems
As a foal, yearling, and 2-year-old he was so easy to handle and good to do in all ways.
At 3 years old we tried to put a head collar on him if took us a week. We then started to bit him, NO Chance!
Having given this problem some thought we decided it must be his teeth. We rang David he came out and found a mouth full of horrors. 4 capped molars, 2 wolf teeth and a front tooth that had grown backwards. After an hour of hard work all the problem teeth were removed.
WOW what a difference, within 24 hours we could put a head collar on. We started bitting him and he was broken in within 3 weeks and has never looked back. He is now 4.
Thank you David, you worked a miracle.

“Extensive equine dental knowledge”

I have known David for 15 years and throughout that time he has imparted a great deal of his extensive equine dental knowledge onto me. We now work very well together drawing on each other’s skills to sort out more complicated dentition issues. His ability to explain to clients, vet students and nurses what is right or wrong with their horses' teeth and how he is going to fix it, is superb and always done with a smile. I would recommend spending a day on the job training with Dave to any recently graduated vet, vet student or equine dental technician.

“Very pleased with the results”

Here at Banham Zoo Norfolk we have had all four breeds of Heavy horse found in the UK the iconic Shire /Clydesdale /Percheron and the rarest of them the Suffolk punch.
David has been with us for many years seeing to the individual needs of each horse.
Here at Banham Zoo now we only keep Suffolk horses now, as they are our east Anglian breed and are also critically endangered, like many of the different animals in our care here at Banham.
We use the horses to advertise and promote the Zoo as well as educate the public of the plight of the Suffolk Horse.
So, our horses, 11 in total, need the very best in Dental farriery, and veterinary care.
And I am very happy to say that David has provided exactly that over the many years he has been looking after our horses.
Not only is David a fountain of knowledge on horse dentistry but is also very professional with it and very approachable with any questions we have.
All in all, we have used David as our equine Dentist for many years and we are very pleased with the results, well done David.
