What's Dr. Bowman Up To?


Richard Bowman, DVM, a graduate of Kansas State Universitys College of Veterinary Medicine, became interested in Equine Dentistry while practicing large animal medicine in southwestern North Dakota. 

In 2000, he decided to limit his practice to equine dentistry and began traveling. His concept of a mobile dental office came to fruition in 2001 when he had one of the first dental trailers in the US built. As business boomed, the practiced covered ND, MN and parts of WI, IA, MO, KS, SD and CO.


Since retiring from veterinary dentistry in 2013, Dr. Bowman continues to work as a State Veterinarian for the Minnesota Horse Racing Commission at Canterbury Park May through September. He operates a beef ranch with his brother in southwestern North Dakota, and rehabilitates and rehomes injured Thoroughbreds. 

In his free time, Dr. Bowman enjoys hunting, riding and scuba-diving.
