Our Service

Our Dentistry Service is focused on providing the most progressive oral health care for pets. Dental disease is the #1 disease entity affecting adult pets. Based on a study by the American Veterinary Dental Society, more than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats develop some degree of periodontal disease by the age of 3 years. Our Dentistry team provides the most progressive oral health care through the diagnosis and treatment of many oral conditions such as gingivitis, periodontal disease, malocclusions, fractured teeth, oral tumors, or painful cavity-like lesions.

Clients can schedule appointments directly and we are always available to consult with our fellow veterinarians on any dental or oral health concerns for their patients.

The Dentistry Service can be contacted for appointment scheduling Monday-Friday at 979-845-2351.



Our Team

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to help increase awareness and educate veterinary professionals and pet owners on the importance of dental and oral health in the life of a pet. They focus on providing exceptional patient care and expert diagnosis.
