In Texas, there’s been an ongoing debate about who should legally be allowed to do equine dental work in that state. They’re now one step closer since the Texas Legislature passed House Bill 414, which will professionalize the practice of non-veterinary equine dentistry and allow licensed “equine dental providers” to perform certain dental services under the supervision of a vet. These services may include removing sharp enamel points and small dental overgrowths, reducing incisors, extracting loose deciduous teeth, and more. The new law will ensure that nonveterinarian equine dentists are regulated and will be required to meet certain levels of professionalism.
