Dental Health Care
Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet's teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasonic technology to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup.
