Hello, I'm Dr Gary. I've been practicing veterinary medicine since 2007. I look forward to helping with your questions/ concerns.

There are many good general practitioners out there that do dental work. If you want a true veterinary dentist, then the numbers are much more limited. This is a pretty small specialty, but they do a fabulous job getting these bad mouths back healthy.

Here is a site to find a veterinary dentist close to you. Most of them can work with your insurance company to make sure things are covered.
