Animal Emergency & Specialty Care

Dentistry & Oral Surgery

You visit your family veterinarian for your pet’s routine dental checkups and cleanings, so where does a veterinary specialty dentist fall into his or her wellness program? Just like your dentist may recommend you to see a specialist at times, your family veterinarian may refer your pet to a specialty dentist if he or she presents with a condition or injury that’s more advanced. Our board-certified veterinary dentist and oral surgeon has the experience and technology needed to address your pet’s most complex or advanced dental needs.

Chewing is a big part of a pet’s everyday life, from eating tasty treats to chomping on a favorite bone, so when a painful injury or condition occurs in the mouth, it can have a big impact. While your pet might not always make it obvious to you when his or her mouth or teeth are hurting as animals are very adept at hiding pain, if your veterinarian recommends further care, it shouldn’t be ignored. Our mission is to return your pet to a healthier and better quality life and to alleviate any pain he or she may be experiencing in the mouth. From gum disease treatment, tooth extractions, and repair to tumor removal and reconstructive surgeries, our team can both diagnose and treat your pet’s condition, restoring the joy of chomping and chewing to his or her life.
