Dr. Cristine Mincheff attended the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She graduated in 1992 and practiced general medicine in Nebraska, Iowa, and Utah before moving to California in 2003. In 2005, she was accepted for a residency in Veterinary Dentistry with Dr. Steven Holmstrom at Animal Dental Clinic.
Since then, she has diagnosed and treated dogs and cats for dental and oral problems, and has also performed dental procedures on lions, tigers, hyenas, wolves, coyotes, panthers, leopards, bears, and other exotic animals in zoos and wildlife sanctuaries. In 2012, she bought the Animal Dental Clinic from Dr. Holmstrom on his retirement; and in 2016, sold it to Dr. Farcas.
While the business responsibilities have been passed on to Dr. Farcas, the joy of veterinary dentistry has not diminished. At the end of the day, happier, healthier pets are going home with their devoted families. Each animal is a delightful new friend, and each pet owner is an important new advocate for healthy companion animals. Winning results!
