“I never want to take 22 teeth out of a dog again.”
–Dr. Jacqueline Myers

“In my general practice experience every week I performed a surprising number of dental extractions on dogs and cats. Many of these pets were older animals that did not have adequate dental care provided to them previously and so their teeth were in desperate need of attention. These animals likely had dental pain for years that had gone unnoticed. I hope to make a change in the lives of animals by offering pet owners an affordable way to give their furry companions healthy mouths free of dental disease and pain. The need for tooth extraction can be significantly reduced with routine, effective dental care.”

Our mission boils down to the fact that we want to make dental care for animals affordable and available to every pet owner and part of their regular general health routine because it is more important than many pet owners realize.

Pet owners want their animals to live healthy, long, happy lives. At Forever Pet Dental our goal is to help our customers provide that desired life for their pets. We believe that some of the key elements to keeping a pet healthy are dental health care and a great relationship with your veterinary clinic. Forever Pet Dental is committed to exceptional customer service that delights every client and top-quality patient care that caters to each individual need. We offer a range of services to fit every client’s needs at affordable prices and offer state of the art medical technology.

At Forever Pet Dental we are working to change the status quo:

23 percent of dogs and cats with moderate to severe dental disease have no recommendation for a dental cleaning, and it is estimated that 80 percent or more of dogs and cats older than two years have some evidence of dental disease that requires treatment.

We promote annual dental cleanings as part of regular veterinary care because most dogs and cats require at least annual dental cleanings to maintain good oral health.

The American Animal Hospital Association recommends dental cleanings annually after 1 year of age for cats and small dogs, or 2 years of age for large dogs.

We aspire to help people help their pets live a life free of dental pain and disease.

Addressing Your Safety Concerns

Forever Pet Dental is devoted exclusively to dental and wellness care for your pet. Because of this, we will be focusing on your pet’s health and well-being during the dental procedure and recovery time. We also use state of the art monitoring equipment to ensure that your furry family member is safe and well taken care of. We hope that our focus on your pet will reduce any anxiety you may have about putting your pet under gas anesthesia.
