Natural Balanced Dentistry - Spencer Laflure
We are very big fans of a holistic whole horse approach to evaluation and treatment of horses (all animals & humans as well).  Spencer LaFlure is bar none the best equine dentist in the country! I was a dental hygienist for 17 years and have seen and experienced with our own horses that Spencer knows more about balancing a horses mouth than most human dentists know about balancing a humans mouth!  Spencer is a big believer in a whole horse, natural, respectful, kind approach to his patients and they really appreciate him and know he is helping them and cares.

We get together with Spencer at least once a year and swap information on the new things we have learned in saddle fitting and he has learned in dentistry and how they relate to each other. We are both constantly learning and trying to improve on what we do.

If you would like the best to work on your horse or someone you know of (maybe your favorite veterinarian) would like the best instruction available to become an Advanced Equine Dentist give Spencer and his wife Judy a call at: 518-623-9967 and/or visit their web site at : www.advancedwholehorsedentistry.com

**Spencer created a very informative DVD for the horse owner and practicing Equine Dentist that shows and explains the importance of proper equine dentistry!  We are the exclusive distributor of his DVD “Horseman’s Guide to Natural Balance Dentistry” click to see more details.  Here is a link to an article about Equine Neuromuscular Dentistry

**Dilly’s Story-
Dilly is our wonderful saddle mule we bought in May of 2009. We could see in Dilly’s body she was very out of balance due to what we think was caused from a past trailer accident about 4 years earlier. Untreated Dilly stood on her own with her body always bent way to the left and it was very hard for her to bend to the right.  Spencer could see how this chronic abnormal posture created an irregular and unhealthy wear pattern in her teeth. After Spencer balanced her mouth it was so different for her she couldn’t eat very well until our local, excellent Equine Chiropractor Bill Hampton adjusted her TMJ and body to help her adjust and realign to her newly balanced mouth. The combined treatments made a drastic difference, Dilly immediately could eat again normally and within about a week she was standing straight, able to bend to the right and enjoying her new flexibility and comfort!!

Ginger Gaffney - French Natural Approach Clinician
Wonderful DVD - Calm, Confident, Clear

Over the years I have learned from each individual horse how to best help them resolve balance issues and conformation limitations. One of the reasons that  classical horsemanship interest me so much is that I can help horses minimize injury and strain to joints from the exercises I do with them. Every type of  horse and every type of riding can benefit from the classical art of gymnastic development. I have helped endurance riders, ex- race horses, eventers and fox  hunting horses as well as all types of western horses.
Ginger has a wonderful way with horses and teaching and we love her DVD and so have the many people who have bought it!
