“Can My Pet Do This?”
You may be thinking like nearly every one of our new clients, “My pet’s not going to sit still or cooperate.” — that’s just a part of what makes us experts at what we do. Our technicians are specially trained in behavioral techniques that quickly calm your pet, keep them comfortable and ease them into a cooperative state.
How It Works
First, your pet is gently and comfortably positioned on the floor in our technician’s lap. We utilize a continual body-to-body contact technique to maintain relaxation and reassure your pet that they are protected and safe. The technician spends a few minutes bonding with your pet before performing a full oral exam.
With your pet relaxed and comfortable, the technician removes all plaque and tartar buildup using specialized tools and pet handling techniques. After your pet’s teeth are polished, you receive a dental report card and a detailed summary of your pet’s visit.
“How Do I Know It’s Time?”
If it’s been more than a year since your pet’s last dental cleaning, it’s probably time. But, many pet owners admit they’ve never had their pet’s teeth cleaned. If you are one of them, you are not alone.
Chronic bad breath can be a strong indicator that it’s time for a dental cleaning. Dental neglect can lead to painful infections, loose teeth, abscesses, and other diseases that may even shorten the life your pet.

Each appointment begins with a friendly introduction to one of our qualified and highly trained technicians who will perform a visual exam of the mouth and head and chart their findings. If the technician discovers any complications such as advanced periodontal disease, deep fractures, mobile teeth, epulis or lesions, the pet will be referred to your veterinarian for treatment.
