Equine Dentist - Bradley Whalan - The Tooth Whisperer

The complexities of equine dentistry is a specialty that is not part of the standard veterinary education.

Brad first started working with race horses when he was 15 at the Rosehill stables of Brian Guy, cleaning out boxes on school holidays.

From there he moved to Randwick working for Pat Webster (former successful jockey and now Group-winning trainer from Racing NSW’s Industry Training Department) where he not only resided but also gained invaluable knowledge and continued to learn strapping and all the basics of stable and horse meet life.

Whilst under Pat’s wing not only was Brad  able to experience breeding arrangements at “Turrunga Stud” in Scone; larger stable experience with The David Payne Racing team (One of the few trainers in the world to have trained 100 group one winners), he was also introduced to 25 year industry veteran and Randwick Equine Dentist Ken Stone, who advised Brad that due to his passion, interest and being an accomplished horseman, he should consider the possibilities of a career in Equine Dentistry.

After researching his industry options, Brad was able to work (in his spare time) with a number highly regarded equine dentists.

In March 2009, Brad was accepted to the New Zealand Equine Dentistry School (Auckland, New Zealand), to study Horse Dentistry, directly under the guidance of head instructor and international accredited Warrick Berhns EqDT / CA and certified advanced member of IAED (with over 30 years worldwide experience within the equine dentistry industry).

On completing his studies Brad returned to Sydney where he formed his own practice - The Tooth Whisperer. The Tooth Whisperer brings a new direction to the Equine Dentistry Industry in Australia.

Through his years of experience within the racing Industry, Brad has developed a keen eye for spotting dental problems within horses. All dentistry work is carried out by Brad himself, who has a genuine interest and technical expertise in correcting the dental issues facing performance horses.

Servicing Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong, Brad also enjoys the challenge of working with breeding stock and spelling horses. Whatever problem is presented; Brad - The Tooth Whisperer will provide you and your horse with educated advice, demonstrate the problems that exist and be able to perform the necessary procedure to get your horse back to perfect dental health. ...
