This is what the vet that did my horse's float advised me as well. She's a DVM who no longer does general practice- she does dentistry, acupuncture and saddle fitting almost exclusively. Legal or not, I don't think I'd want a non-DVM messing with my horse's teeth, and I'd definitely go with a DVM who does lots of dentals if at all possible.
