Premier Pet Dentistry in Portland, OR is a referral provider of veterinary dentistry for pets. We bring our skill to you if you can't come to us, working with your primary doctor to offer a wide variety of dental and oral surgery options from root canal treatment for dogs and cats to orthodontics and tumor removal.
The challenge of patients that can't talk to us sometimes results in pets that silently suffer from mouth pain or infection. When disease creeps up gradually it may be hard to recognize in a pet you see every day. But with Premier Pet Dentistry, we believe that the mouth is where a healthy body begins. There is no question that dental disease impacts quality of life. Studies show it affects systemic health and longevity as well . Our passion is restoring and maintaining comfort for all life stages. Our favorite , when we get to hear how much better your pet feels!
Your Primary Care Vet
Dentistry is what we do, and we wouldn't have it any other way. We rely heavily upon your primary care provider to oversee the rest so we can focus on what we do best. Typically your vet has provided your pet with wellness care for years, and should continue to do so. If you don't have a regular vet or have recently moved, we may be able to help you find one in your area.
Veterinary dentistry is a vast and rapidly changing field. There is growing evidence of how oral health impacts the rest of the body. While we obscess on all things with the mouth, we defer to your regular vet to provide or coordinate the most appropriate care in other aspects. This partnership is instrumental in helping make sure we have the whole picture and your pet has continuity of care.
Though Dr Martin and her team prefer to work out of her Beaverton office, she can travel to your primary vet's office on request. Let us know how we can help and we will do our best to accommodate.
You and your pet!
We listen to what you want and need for your pets, to create a practical customized plan. Most people do not realize that veterinary dentistry can now offer almost everything that human dentistry does. The biggest question is about what options apply to your pets mouth, the prognosis, and what is sustainable. This may change depending on your pets age, overall health, temperament for home care, and your own personal circumstances.
Communication is key to understanding your goals, and then we blend that information with what we know to be possible for treatment. Each family and patient is unique and there is no one size fits all approach to your pet.
We work to restore comfort and find sustainable solutions for maintenance. While sometimes this may mean extractions, that is usually the least desirable treatment option. Each situation may open up a host of possibilities for what we can do to get and keep your pet on track.
