Matthew Oxford


Course Organiser for the British Veterinary Dental Association

Matthew is one of only a handful of Veterinary Dentists in the UK and established the New Forest Veterinary Dental Service in 2011, to provide a referral service for advanced veterinary dental and oral surgery procedures for other veterinary practices. He sees around 700 cases a year, ranging from routine work to advanced dental and oral surgery cases, and including work on some more 'exotic' patients. He publishes regularly in the veterinary literature and is a reviewer for a number of publications. He is the course organiser for the British Veterinary Dental Association, a role which involves providing and co-ordinating undergraduate teaching at Bristol and Cambridge Universities, as well as the association's numerous postgraduate courses for vets, both in the UK and in Europe. In addition he has tutored at the Universities of Liverpool and Nottingham. He holds the European Certificate in Small Animal Surgery and his main interest is in endodontic (root canal) treatment of teeth.

Matthew has lectured at all of the veterinary conferences such as BSAVA Congress, The London Vet Show, VetsSouth, VetsNorth, the BVDA Annual Scientific Meeting as well as at meetings and conferences outside of the UK. He also provides an in house CPD service for practices we are keen to learn more in their own environment. He has contributed to the  on line resources at the Boehringer Academy and Vetstream.

Matthew provides referral and primary care veterinary dentistry and oral surgery at Priory Veterinary Hospital (Christchurch), and a referral veterinary dentistry and oral surgery service at South Devon Referrals (nr Exeter), Lumbry Park Veterinary Specialists in Hampshire and in West London at Runnymede Hill Veterinary Hospital and Stone Lion Veterinary Hospital in Wimbledon, London. Referral appointments can be booked through Sue Vranch.
