Safe and Comfortable Dental Care

What if my pet needs dental work?

Just like for pet owners, dental care is essential to your cat or dog’s overall wellness. Regular dental cleanings help protect your pet from oral disease and keep your pet feeling happy and healthy. Without regular dental care, pets often experience oral disease, which can lead to discomfort, pain, and even depression. Oral disease can also affect other organs in the body, such as the kidneys, liver, lungs, or heart.

What to expect

Your pet’s well-being is our highest priority. We take multiple steps to ensure your pet is safe and comfortable during the procedure. Our experienced staff always uses the latest technology and techniques and we always treat your pet with the kindness and compassion that he or she deserves.

Our dental exams include the following:

  • Assessment of your pet’s teeth, gum line, and mouth
    We probe each tooth for signs of decay and examine the mouth for signs of disease.
  • Cleaning, scaling, and polishing of all teeth
    We remove plaque and tartar build-up from each tooth.
  • X-rays
    We may take high-resolution images of problematic teeth as needed.
  • Tooth extractions or surgery
    If needed, we may remove an unhealthy tooth or repair a problem in your pet’s mouth.


Every pet deserves the very best possible outcome for his or her health. To do this, our practice occasionally refers pets to board-certified specialists to perform complex dental operations that require advanced equipment or training.
