About Us

Dr. Olivia James

Dr. James is based in sunny Brisbane, Australia and had the idea to deliver online lectures in equine dentistry to make education accessible for people all over the world while undertaking volunteer work for Animal Aid Abroad for the working ponies of Gili Islands, Indonesia in early 2019. Together with over 32 Diplomates, Specialists and experts in their field, the collaboration of experts has now enabled this idea to come to life. This course has been designed to be educational and enjoyable and able to be accessed from the comfort of your home or when you are on the go.

Dr. James is also Director of Australian Veterinary Equine Dentistry (established in 2017). She sees referral dentistry and oral surgery cases from Veterinarians in Australia, NZ and Asia, and is in the final year of the equine program, Advanced Standing, American Veterinary Dental College.

Dr James is passionate about 4 things

1) equine dentistry

2) business and marketing

3) teaching the future generation of veterinarians

4) personal development (and being a good citizen of this world!)


Her other courses include The Equine Practice Company Mastermind. This is a business mastermind for small and solo equine practices, learning all the business skills they were never taught at vet school. You can check this out here The Equine Practice Mastermind


This program would not be possible without the willing collaboration of colleagues from far flung corners of the world. We had a hand-picked list of speakers to approach, the vast majority  immediately said 'YES' when they were asked if they would like to be part of such a huge venture, and for their input I am eternally grateful.

A massive THANK YOU all the speakers who have collaborated to share their passion for horses and for veterinary equine dentistry, and also in their particular area of interest. Without them this this dream would not have become reality. In no particular order, we would like to give our gratitude and thanks to:
