Hats off to the hardworking nurses who clean your pet’s teeth! It is a difficult and yes..dirty job, but a rewarding one. Our nurses take tremendous pride in their work, and are meticulous in their craft. Our dental nurses have received formal training in examining and charting the mouth, gums, and teeth, taking digital oral radiographs, polishing and applying necessary oral treatments, and assisting the surgeon during extraction procedures. We are so proud of the hard work, commitment and expertise these nurses provide our patients undergoing dental procedures. Thank them today with a big smile!
