This website was created to provide information about veterinary dentistry and oral surgery (VDOS) to veterinarians and technicians, the corporate industry, and pet owners.

​​An extensive continuing education program exists for veterinarians, AVDC/EVDC residents, veterinary technicians/nurses, and dental hygienists working on veterinary patients. We also offer consulting services for the corporate industry (pet food companies, pharmaceutical firms, and dental supply industry), providing opportunity for initial consultations about manufacturing, marketing, product efficacy testing and regulating pet dental products and similar services. Don't miss the pet owners pages about frequently asked questions and oral hygiene at home as well as the resources page to find information about much more relating to VDOS.

Please also see our COVID-19 page, containing helpful information on how to safely practice VDOS during a time of global crisis. Never hesitate to contact us with anything on your mind.
