What is a Board Certified Veterinary Dentist


Board certified veterinary dental specialists are trained to evaluate genetic as well as acquired problems. Advanced diagnostics, including dental radiology and laboratory evaluations, allow proper diagnosis of oral health and any medical problem prior to treatment planning. Since the veterinary dental specialist is trained in surgery, medicine, and dentistry, a wide range of special treatment options can be implemented. Obviously, patients with oral health problems will require general anesthesia for evaluation and treatment. The veterinary dental specialist has advanced training in the safe and effective use of anesthesia and also in pain management. The veterinary dental specialist will implement appropriate therapeutic programs to improve oral health and the generally wellness of their patients.

Diplomates of the American Veterinary Dental College provide instruction focusing on educating and training veterinarians in the art and science of veterinary dentistry. They also work with other organizations to establish practice standards and incorporate acceptable techniques into the discipline of veterinary dentistry practice.
