In order to treat dental and oral conditions in companion animals, our highly experienced dentistry team uses the most advanced technologies and methods including digital dental radiography, electric dental handpieces (vs air driven), rotary endodontic systems as well as advanced imaging including Computed Tomography.

Dental and oral health is an important factor for the quality of life for pets and their human families.

We are dedicated to providing outstanding service to our clients while ensuring the very best of care for their pets. It is our goal to assure that our patient’s families are well informed and comfortable about their pet's care.


Endodontics is the branch of dentistry dealing with treatments of the dental pulp (the nerves, blood vessels and cells in the root canal). Endodontic procedures are most commonly performed on fractured or non-vital teeth. Types of endodontic treatments performed include root canals (removal of all of the pulp tissue and filling of the canal), vital pulpotomies (pulp capping or sealing of the pulp after exposure such as with height reduction), apicoectomy (surgical root canal therapy) as well as treatments of the immature tooth.

- Root canal therapy
- Vital pulpotomy
- Apicoectomy (surgical root canal treatment)

Occlusion Assessment

Occlusion assessment is important in diagnosis and treatment planning for many patients with malocclusions. Many dogs have bite faults that may be traumatic and painful. Evaluation of the bite at various ages is important to allow us to provide the best advice and broadest selection of treatment options if appropriate.


Bite abnormalities are common in domestic animals. A large percentage of these can be helped with orthodontics although known genetic conditions that are not painful or traumatic will NOT be treated (this is often only requested in show animals and should be considered unethical).

- Gingivoplasty
- Inclined planes
- Crown extension procedures
- Masal chain procedures for maxillary canines

Restorative Dentistry

Congenital enamel defects, crown fractures and endodontic access preparations can all be restored with a variety of materials. Placement of bonding agents, composite resins as well as full metals crowns may be appropriate for individual conditions.
