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 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
