Dental Procedures at Safari

The Safari Difference follows through as we clean your pet’s teeth. We consider the procedure seriously, and take the time to perform a complete dental, with probing, scaling, polishing and dental radiographs to determine and document the degree of disease.

This is done under general anesthesia with intensive care monitoring devices. In addition, your pet is kept warm and comfy on a bed of warm air during the procedure


Figure 1 Your pet is under general anesthesia, with an endotracheal tube to protect the trachea and lungs from water and debris. The pet is kept warm with circulating war air blankets and state of the art monitoring devices keep track of the status of vitals.

We use the acronym ATP for Assessment, Treatment and Plan for the future. The first stage is Assessment for what we are going to do today and to document where we are with the dental care now. Treatment of the teeth by scaling the teeth above and below the gum line as well as removal of teeth or obvious gum disease is done during the first procedure. Then we Plan for the future as we identify the dental trend in your pet’s mouth.


Figure 2 The teeth are examined, and the assessment is recorded tooth by tooth.

Dental radiographs will be reviewed with you during your pet’s release from the hospital so we can be on the same page with the future dental care. Digital dental plates specially designed for “in-the-mouth” use is placed behind the teeth to record the radiographs. The dental radiograph unit is similar to that used in a human dental office.

Figure 5 Your pet’s teeth are clean, shiny, polished and have received a fluoride treatment to seal the enamel and reduce plaque and tartar accumulation in the future.

These people are great. Their stem cell therapy saved my dog from being a cripple at 4yrs old. People come from all over the country to get this treatment for their pets. The results with our Sophie was truly amazing. I will continue to recommend them for pets with spinal disk disease.

This is the best vet in the world. They are trustworthy and knowledgeable. From the minute we walked through the door we were greeted with compassion and treated like family. The first two nights the staff stayed hours after they should've for our emergency. The Dr. Came in on his own time to see our pets. We are so lucky to have found them and for as long as our fur babies will have us..we will have them. Safari veterinary is we trust for ALL our pets needs. I just love them

Safari veterinary care is the best. Our pets' lives were saved several times through careful diagnosis and prompt treatment. Competence coupled with caring is what sets Dr. Garner and Dr. Mooney apart. I cannot recommend them enough.

Pulling up this place is Lovely on the outside and inside the vet office. well decorated office in safari theme. Nicely kept and so clean. The folks were attentive and polite. We were Taken to the back fairy quick where our turtle went to get her nails and beak trimmed. The extra awesome thing here is in the room they have screen monitors where you can view your loved pet being attended to & that brings comfort , ease and joy to watch. I highly recommend this business to everyone seeking reptile grade A service.

We chose Safari Vet just because it’s close to home. We had no idea how great they would be. The whole staff is very warm, kind and they truly love our pets. In the year and a half that we’ve been taking our sweet Puppy there, not once did I encounter an unpleasant experience. And when our beloved dachshund passed away unexpectedly, they sent the most thoughtful card, personally signed by everyone there. Would recommend Safari Vet to anyone!
