We are pleased that you have found our site. If you are in need of our services, please feel free to call our office to discuss your pet's problems or to schedule an appointment.
Most dental and oral problems will require an examination with one of our doctors in order to provide you with as much information as possible regarding a diagnosis and treatment plan. In many cases, we are able to see your pet and provide treatment on the same day, if desired. In order to do this, we require that you have seen your family veterinarian prior to seeing us. Since anesthesia is required for most procedures, we need your pet to have had a recent physical examination, as well as pre-anesthetic bloodwork (CBC and chemistry profile), by your family veterinarian. This allows our doctors to have a better idea of your pet's overall health prior to your visit.
On the day of your appointment, one of our board certified veterinary dentists will examine your pet's mouth in the exam room with you, pointing out any problems they see. The doctor will then discuss any potential problems and treatment options with you. A fully itemized treatment plan (estimate for cost of services) will be provided and explained. In most cases, the treatment procedure can be performed the same day, provided the pre-anesthetic requirements have been met. Our procedures are outpatient procedures, so your pet will go home with you the day of the procedure (usually in the afternoon). At your discharge appointment, a copy of your pet's medical record (including a dental chart, dental x-rays, photographs, and discharge instructions) will be provided to you.
If you are a new client, please be sure to complete the client information sheet prior to your appointment or plan to arrive at our office 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to fill out the paperwork.
