Dentistry

Did you know the number one health problem affecting 80% of dogs and 70% of cats over the age of three is dental disease?

Dentistry in veterinary medicine isn’t just about keeping your pet’s teeth white and mouth smelling good. Many of our pets’ suffer in silence from acute/chronic oral pain and systemic bacteria from periodontal disease, tooth fractures, tooth resorption, and many other oral conditions. It is our team’s goal to help you identify, stop, and prevent the pain and systemic side effects from these conditions for your pet.

Our dental suite is outfitted with the most modern equipment available.  We use our Image-Vet DC dental x-ray unit, View-All digital dental x-ray software, and a Midmark Pro 1000 Vet Dental Unit to help set the standard for veterinary dentistry in the Columbus area.
