“The services provided by Pet Dental Services have proven to be invaluable to our practice. Our clients appreciate the safety and convenience that non-anesthetic dentistry provides to their pets.

We have been very happy with the level of service we receive from Pet Dental Services, a teeth cleaning service without anesthesia for cats and dogs. They are very professional and relaiable. They are friendly and knowledgeable regarding dental cleaning, and are very good with our clients. They take the time to explain the procedure and are always willing to over the dental report with the client.
Their technicians arrive once per week (4 times per month) to our clinic, bringing with them all their own equipment. they perform a full teeth cleaning with manual polishing and complete charting, which the client gets a copy of. They typically service between 80 and 100 patients per month at our facility.
The level of professional care can be seen by us as well as the clients, which keeps most of them booking repeat cleanings for their pets on a regular basis.
We would be more than happy to recommend Pet Dental Services to any veterinary clinic or animal care facility.

I have been using the non anesthetic dental cleaning treatments for approximately seven years now and they work great. They are in no way intended to take the place of deep cleaning, extractions and radiographs that are all done during anesthetic dentals. They are an excellent complement to thorough dental care. Once a deep cleaning is done with anesthesia, a follow up preventative cleaning is scheduled in 4 to 6 months to maintain the teeth in great health. Younger dogs with no major dental disease can be scheduled for non anesthetic dentals to prevent the tartar buildup and gingivitis. They are to be used as we do with people, routine dental cleanings to prevent severe dental disease. The non anesthetic dentals if started early in the life of our pets, followed up with good home care can prevent a lot of problems in the future. They are also a great alternative for the geriatric pet that has a greater risk with anesthesia. The advantage with the geriatric pet is greater if dental cleaning has already been instituted in the past when the pet was in good health.

“I have been using Pet Dental Services for the past 3 years. Not only is the staff courteous and professional, but the extent of the work being done is superlative. Since we have started offering this lower cost non-anesthetic option, client compliance has begun to improve. It is a win/win situation, pets that are eligible for this non-anesthetic procedure are getting the dental care that is essential for their overall health and clients are benefiting from getting affordable preventative care. Also, some clients are extremely sensitive to placing their pet under anesthesia. It is a pleasure being able to satisfy the clients, but also give the pet the care they deserve.”

What is Dental Disease in Pets?
According to the AVDS 80% of dogs and 70% of cats by the age 3 show signs of periodontal disease. Periodontal (gum) disease is one of the most common conditions seen in pets today. The problem begins when plaque and tartar are allowed to build up on your pet’s teeth. Plaque harbors the bacteria, which can infect gum tissue and the roots of teeth resulting in disease and tooth loss. Besides the negative impact on the oral health, bacteria can enter the blood stream through the large blood vessels located near the gums and teeth. At this stage, the organs with the highest blood flow are most susceptible to infections: lungs, heart, kidneys, liver and even the brain. Damage to these organs caused by infection can shorten the lives of our pets.
Our dental hygienists are highly qualified to perform a thorough dental exam on your pet without the use of anesthesia. During the examination our hygienists will chart any abnormalities or concerns regarding your pet’s oral health. The next step is removing all of the plaque above and below the gum line. When we are finished removing the buildup, we will polish the teeth using a fluoride-based pumice. Following your pet’s dental exam our hygienists can assist you in getting started on a home maintenance program to ensure the overall health of your pet.
