Dentistry Services for
Cats & Dogs

You may not think that dental health is all that important for pets – their teeth work, and that’s all that matters, right? But what starts in the mouth can end up impacting your pet’s other systems. In fact, periodontal disease is closely tied to heart, liver, and kidney disease. The good news is, veterinary dentistry is extremely advanced, and there is a lot we can do to ensure your pet’s mouth – and whole body – can stay healthy.

Oral Health Exams

We’ll check not only your pet’s teeth and gums, but look for any lesions, discoloration, tumors, or discharge that could indicate a problem.


Like humans, pets benefit from having their teeth polished and scaled (scraped of any plaque). Unlike humans, pets won’t voluntarily lay still for extended periods, so we use anesthesia to ensure we can do a thorough and complete job, including checking for signs of disease and cleaning under the gums.

Dental X-Rays

Not all dental problems are visible to the naked eye, so we have a digital dental X-ray machine onsite. While your pet is anesthetized, we’ll take radiographs of their mouth so we can have a record of their dental health and can compare with later images to spot any problems.


While saving teeth is always preferred, sometimes the best treatment is to extract them. When necessary, we’ll extract your pet’s diseased teeth and provide instructions for their care afterward.

We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, your pet’s vital signs are closely monitored during all anesthetic procedures.
