General Practice

The most common disease in small animals over the age of 5 years is periodontal disease which  left unaddressed can affect other organs such as the heart and the kidneys.   Our professional staff is  well trained in all aspects of diagnosing and treating dental disease.   

The advanced dental imaging available to us will generate a 3-dimensional computerized model  of your pets’ mouth in less time than taking conventional 1-dimentional dental x-rays.  We will be able  to clearly identify most oral disease in a shorter time, thus shortening the length of anesthesia.

Once imaging of your pet’s mouth is obtained and a full oral exam is performed, the doctor will  go over the findings with the owner prior to proceeding with treatment.  Once a treatment plan is  agreed upon, any extractions will be performed by the doctor.  A technician will then clean and polish all  remaining teeth.
