Pet Dentistry

Our dental services include cleaning and polishing teeth, tooth extractions, and oral surgery. We also offer a full line of at-home dental care products.

The Importance of Pet Dentistry

Like humans, pets require regular dental care to maintain optimal oral health. Dental issues such as tartar buildup, gingivitis, and periodontal disease can not only cause discomfort and pain for your pet but also lead to more serious health problems if left untreated. By prioritizing pet dentistry, you can help prevent dental disease and ensure your pet’s overall well-being.
