The practices operated by associates are independent businesses using some of the infrastructure provided by the Australian Equine Dental Practice. Each independent practice shown under 'area'  is licensed to use that registered business name. Each associate has been chosen for his/her high standard of work, conscientiousness and commitment to the work.


As a course in equine dentistry was not available anywhere in the world at the time he wanted to commence studies, Peter learned from collected books and information from libraries, veterinary colleges and lecturers.  He also sourced the appropriate instruments and started treating horses after gaining knowledge and the necessary skills.

Peter Borgdorff established the Australian Equine Dental Practice in 1980 and worked for prominent thoroughbred and harness racing establishments. He was a founding member of the Victorian Equine Dentists Association and more recently co-founded the National Equine Dental Practitioners Inc. In practice his objective was to provide the highest quality conscientious treatment for the benefit of horses. He also dedicates a significant amount of time to work on industrial designs and logistics projects. 

Peter Borgdorff has provided extensive training to quite a number of equine dental practitioners to date.

Please note -unless indicated- the above graduates work independently and are not associated with the Australian Equine Dental Practice.


Informal basic level training (1999 or earlier) was provided to
Peter Lane, Mark Old, Heather Bain, Gary Rawlings. Accordingly, they have not been awarded AEDP certificates.


It has come to our attention that Barry Stephan from the Albury Wodonga area is making the following claims:
- That he has been trained by Peter Borgdorff of the Australian Equine Dental Practice. Mr Borgdorff advises that no training whatsoever has been provided to Barry Stephan.
- That Peter Borgdorff no longer visits the Albury Wodonga Region. That is incorrect. Mr Borgdorff continues to visit the Albury Wodonga Region.
