About The Animal Dental Center
Why See A Specialist?
Primary care veterinarians are highly skilled at providing excellent basic health care for pets. Sometimes, however, through regular screening, they uncover chronic or serious medical issues in a pet. At that point, they may refer the pet to a specialist to provide an advanced level of expert advice or care. This is no different from your primary care physician referring you to specialists for specific health conditions.
The Animal Dental Center specialist team is an extension of the services offered by your general veterinarian. We provide the advanced support necessary to manage dental and maxillofacial disease in your pet.
Because we are a referral facility, the Animal Dental Center does not provide routine veterinary care. Any pre-operative tests to determine your pet’s anesthetic health risks should be done by the referring veterinarian. Any diagnostic testing related to the oral problem will be completed by our specialty team. You can reach all our offices at (410) 828-1001 to schedule a consult (with same-day procedures available!) or with questions about veterinary dental continuing education courses.
