(Scroll down for video) If your horse develops teeth problems there is no need anymore to take it to the dentist because now, the dentist will come to your horse, according to video uploaded to the Internet.

Not many dentists make house calls these days, but Julian Ocampo is not your average dentist.

Ocampo is a horse dentist, a fast-growing profession in a unique industry.

"Some time ago, I think it was more of a novelty," a horse trainer said. "You'd do it for expensive horses, but people are starting to realize that they have to do this with every horse," he added.

"They have sharp edges that grow on the sides of the upper molars. That is what is causing pressure
on the jaw," Ocampo said about his work.

Human and horse dentistry are similar, besides rinsing and spitting.

"There is grass and grain inside the mouth," Ocampo said.

Ocampo has been working as a horse dentist for seven years. He said that technology has helped horses receive the best dental care.

Horse dentists use a specialized tool for easy access to their teeth.

It can cost between $100 and $200 per horse, but the owners say they are worth every penny.
