Specialty Veterinary Dentistry Does Exist
Learn About Our Specialty Staff
Many people are surprised to hear that the specialty of veterinary dentistry and oral surgery exists; they’ve simply never considered that pets need dental care or oral surgery. In many ways, the field is similar to human dentistry and oral surgery, but there are also some important differences.
A pet’s mouth does important work; the most obvious job is picking up food, chewing, and swallowing. Other jobs that one might not think of as readily are defense, grooming, breathing and cooling.
