When re-scheduling or cancelling an appointment, kindly give us 48 hours notice to schedule other patients waiting to be seen.

Our doctors see scheduled appointments Monday through Friday, 9:00 am – 4:30 pm. Appointments can be made for consultation referred from your primary care veterinarian, for second opinions, or simply to find out more information regarding the oral health of your companion.

Procedures under anesthesia are scheduled after consultation, after the estimate has been reviewed, and all questions are answered.

A dental cleaning, also called a dental prophylaxis, involves a complete oral evaluation under anesthesia. The dental prophylaxis removes plaque (bacteria) and the hard calculus on your pet’s teeth. Your dental hygienist recommends routine visits to prevent tooth and gum loss. Our pets can suffer from the same periodontal disease and benefit from regular prophylaxis visits to save your pet’s smile.
Once your pet has had a complete physical exam and pre-operative bloodwork performed, our doctors will design a treatment plan and anesthesia protocol tailored to your pet’s needs. We put safety first. Our specialists provide continual anesthetic monitoring with advanced equipment for your peace of mind.
Our specialists perform an oral examination paying close attention to any subtle changes, damage to your pet’s teeth, and screen for oral cancer.
Our staff obtain Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) and digital dental radiographs to detect any problems below the gum line.
Your pet’s “cleaning” or prophylaxis, includes ultrasonic scaling above and below the gum line with special instruments designed specifically to fight infection, as well as remove plaque and calculus safely and gently.
All surfaces are polished to create a smooth shine and remove stain from the enamel.
All procedures are followed by a “tour of the mouth” at the time of patient dismissal. This is a dedicated time to highlight areas of gum disease that may need extra attention with a toothbrush, discussion of home care tools to help decrease bacteria and plaque in the mouth, and give tips on how to take care or your pet’s health.
“My dog is doing great, oh my, it’s like I have my old dog back…He is doing so good.”
“Dr. Crowder, thank you so much for taking such good care of our ‘girl.’ We appreciate your kindness.”
“Thank you so much for taking such great care of me and my teeth. They look awesome. Thanks again,”
“First of all, Leah was wonderful via telephone and was extremely polite, very friendly, and also enjoyable in person to work with & discuss the details of the procedures & pricing. It is apparent that you have a good staff & business plan that caters to the client, rather than catering to your own business. This is a very good business model & I appreciate it completely. I also like that you show LOVE to our kid’s.
I also appreciate your professionalism of explaining all the details and the follow up phone calls to see how KONA is doing. Showing me digital pictures was also valuable and showed the scope of the procedure. This also instills confidence in clients like myself.
Thank you also for allowing me to print off the insurance forms for me to submit to Pet Plan Insurance for reimbursement of these procedures. I got my check in 7 days from the procedure date, which was great due to the detailed billing statement you printed for me to submit.
Keep doing what you are providing to clients in the form of professionalism, patience, kindness, & the LOVE of our kid’s.”
