Requirements:

The Minnesota Legislature amended the Veterinary Practice Act to allow non-veterinarians who have met certain criteria to provide equine teeth floating services. The law required equine teeth floaters to be certified by the International Association of Equine Dentistry (IAED) or other professional equine dentistry associations as determined by the board.

The following programs are currently recognized by the Minnesota Board of Veterinary Medicine for certification as equine teeth floaters:

1) International Association of Equine Dentistry

2) Academy for Equine Dentistry – approved by Board May 14, 2008

3) Equine Gnathological Training Institute – approved by Board May 10, 2011

4) Texas Institute of Equine Dentistry - approved by the Board September 27, 2011

5) Equine Dental Providers of America - approved by the Board September 9, 2015  

After obtaining certification by one of the programs listed above, the individual must provide the Board of Veterinary Medicine with documentation of their certification along with a written statement from a Minnesota veterinarian who will provide direct or indirect supervision.
