In 1987 the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry was formed in response to the need for recognition of those veterinarians who had advanced training and competency in animal dentistry. A group of leaders in the field were tested in January 1987 for competency and 25 became the Charter Fellows of the Academy. Since that time, over 80 veterinarians on four continents have been found qualified to stand and pass the written and bench examinations, and be named as Fellows of the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry.
