When to Refer to a Board Certified Veterinary Dentist

The AVDC values our partnership with our veterinary colleagues and when it comes to pet dental health we know that you are typically a pet owner’s first point of contact to learn about proper pet dental care. We want to be a resource for you to be able to better educate your pet families about the importance of annual veterinary dental cleanings and the risks involved with lay people offering ineffective services like non-anesthetic dentals, which are a waste of time and money.

In addition to being an educational resource for you, our board certified veterinary dentists offer specialty services in complex cases involving dental disease or injury. Specialty care our members provide include:

  • Jaw Fracture Repair
  • Oronasal Fistula Repair
  • Removal of Oral Tumors and Masses
  • Periodontal Therapy
  • Root Canals
  • Extractions
  • Treatment for Feline Stomatitis and Feline Tooth Resorption
  • Pet Dental Cleaning for higher anesthesia risk pets

In referral cases our specialists are committed to providing the highest level of care to your patient. After treatment, you can always expect a full report for your records which details diagnosis, treatment, radiographs and any follow up care you will want to incorporate into the pet’s health plan.
