VCA Highlands Ranch Dentistry TeamMuch like a human dentist, a veterinary dentist is responsible for the health of the oral cavity of his or her patients. Unlike a human dentist, a veterinary dentist has completed a four year veterinary degree after an undergraduate college degree and then pursued four additional years of specialty training in dentistry.

Today's veterinary dentist uses the latest technologies and techniques to ensure that his or her patients receive the highest standard of oral care. Many tooth sparing procedures are now available to veterinary dentists, such as root canal therapy, occlusal equilibration, and orthodontic adjustment, that can help pets overcome their dental disease without the pain of a tooth extraction.

The Role of a Specialist in Veterinary Dentistry

Many primary care veterinarians perform a number of dental procedures, so what does a veterinary dentist do differently? By visiting an AVMA board certified veterinary dentist, you can be assured that you are entrusting your pet to the highest level of dental care. Veterinary dentists specialize in performing dental work, and because of this, they have become very proficient at the work they do. Dr. MacLellan has been performing advanced level dentistry for over 15 years, allowing her to perform many complicated procedures more quickly and efficiently than would be otherwise possible.

Our hospital is also equipped with the latest technology to ensure the best standard of care being given. From our digital dental radiographic (x-ray) equipment to our ultra sonic scaler, high speed drills, advanced imaging equipment, and highly-trained specialized staff, this technology keeps your pet under anesthesia for as little time as possible while providing the highest standard of care.

Call us today and find out if your pet could benefit from Dr. MacLellan's experience!
