SOUTHWEST RANCHES, Fla. - Julian Ocampo isn't your average dentist, he's a horse dentist, which is a fast growing profession in the equine industry.
Ocampo has been working as a horse dentist for seven years. He says technology has helped horses receive better dental care.
Like people, horses only need a dental visit every six months to a year.
Horse dentists use a specialized spreader and head stand to easily access the teeth.
It can cost between $100 and $200 per horse to visit the equine dentist, but owners say it's worth it.
