Dental Care

Animal Dental Center in Kennett Square

“Periodontal disease is the most common clinical condition occurring in adult dogs and cats and is entirely preventable. By three years of age, most dogs and cats have some evidence of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease includes gingivitis, inflammation of the gums, and periodontitis, loss of bone and soft tissue around the teeth. There is a wide range in the appearance and severity of periodontal disease, which often cannot be properly evaluated or treated without general anesthesia for veterinary patients.”

— American Veterinary Dental College

We have a state of the art animal dental center equipped with an ultrasonic scaler, high and low-speed drilling equipment, as well as digital x-ray equipment. While being closely monitored under anesthesia, each patient receives a comprehensive oral assessment by the attending doctor. To assist our veterinarians at our animal dental center, we have a select team of nurses who have completed a comprehensive program through the Animal Dental Training Program of Baltimore. These nurses are proficient in charting, scaling and polishing of the teeth, along with capturing high quality diagnostic dental radiographs. They continue to further their education each year by attending lectures and wet labs. At our animal dental center, after each pet’s mouth is assessed and treated, the doctor will provide a treatment and prevention plan specific to each dog or cat.

The best way to provide dental care at home is to brush your pet’s teeth regularly. See the links below for step-by step guides. If you want to add a dental chew to your pet’s dental health regimen, make sure they carry the seal of approval by the Veterinary Oral Health Council. For a complete list of approved preventive products, please visit the Veterinary Oral Health Council or Greenies.
