Significant disease can be found in a pet’s mouth both on the teeth and beneath the gum line. Dirty teeth harbor bacteria, which can affect the overall health of a pet as well as affect their quality of life.

The doctors and staff at KAH have undergone additional training with a veterinary dental specialist to offer advanced dental care.   These services include prophylactic dental cleaning and extraction techniques. Periodontal treatments and bonded sealants can also be utilized to help save teeth when appropriate.


Digital dental x-rays are offered to visualize disease that occurs beneath the gum line. X-rays help determine the extent of dental disease and treatment options.
