~~When addressing your pet's or dog's teeth cleaning and dental care it is crucial to get periodic assessments from your Vet and not wait until your pet's condition becomes painful and/or infected. Sadly, our Chicago dental Vets are rarely faced with a routine dental cleaning for our animal patients. In fact, oral surgery and periodontal therapy would be more appropriate terms for what we handle during our ‘dental appointments.’

It is estimated that over 60% of dental pathology lies beneath the gum surface.
