Your pet’s teeth are important to us. As they can’t brush their teeth every day like us humans, the risk of dental disease is quite high. That’s why we offer a dedicated appointment with one of our vets for a free dental check and dental plan discussion.
Pet Dental Services
It’s important to have a regular annual dental and health check-ups for your pet because if they have dental disease or a toothache, you are unlikely to notice as pets are very good at hiding pain. Any smelly breath, yellow tartar build-up or signs of eating discomfort (e.g. dropping food) can be signs of dental disease and will require a dental examination.
A check up may reveal the need for cleaning, polishing, tooth extraction or even just a change in diet to prevent dental problems and do away with the need for yearly cleans. Remember, your pet will look and function better and also live longer with healthy teeth and gums.
Up to 75% of pets older than 3 years old suffer from some degree of periodontal and gingival disease. This is a condition in which bacteria attack the gum tissue causing a foul odour, yellowish brown crusts of tartar around the gum line and even pain and bleeding when your pet eats or when you touch their gums.
We provide all routine dentistry services including some more advanced procedures, and we also refer to specialists trained in advanced orthodontics when required.
Dr. Eden Clark
Eden is a Diamond Creek girl who knows and loves the Eltham area. Eden desired to become a vet from a very young age and spent much of her childhood caring for wildlife, including housing bees overnight in homemade enclosures and feeding them sugar syrup until they were recuperated! It was her strong compassion that drove her desire to become a veterinarian.
After 6 years of study, Eden graduated from the University of Melbourne with First Class Honours in the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. She has been lucky enough to spend the last 3 months travelling abroad through Central and South America with her partner before joining our team.
