REFERRAL INFORMATION FOR CLIENTS

  • Ideally your pet should have seen their primary veterinarian for a annual exam within the last year. 
  • All patients over the age of 7 should have a full lab panel (complete blood count/chemistry panel/urinalysis +/- thyroid level) within 1 year of exam with primary veterinarian.
  • All pets under the age of 7 years are recommended to have a CBC/Chemistry within the last year. 
  • If you don’t have a primary veterinarian, we can perform some of the diagnostics but if there are underlying medical issues/concerns they will have to be further worked up/managed by a primary veterinarian. 
  • All pertinent records should be sent to dentistry@oakvetash.com if not being attached into the record directly (from all rDVM, specialists, and emergency clinics visited – please include all pertinent lab results, histopathology results, and x-rays). 
  • If dental radiographs were obtained and easy to send/attach please do so.

BASIC INFORMATION FOR CLIENTS

  • All patients will be seen for a consultation before scheduling a procedure. 
  • At the consultation we will create an estimate based on the examination findings.
  • At the consultation we will schedule the procedure in an appropriately timed manner. 
  • This is a specialty service, so pricing will tend to be higher than your local DVM.

    • Periodontal cleaning/extractions (tooth removal) – $2,500-7,500 (depends on the number of teeth needing treatment and difficulty of the extractions)

    • RCT (Root canal) – $2,900-3,500 (depending on the tooth requiring treatment, does not include a full periodontal treatment, this would occur at a follow-up visit)

    • Broken teeth or severe periodontal disease resulting in loose or abscessed teeth can be medically managed by your primary veterinarian to help keep your pet comfortable until their regular appointment with us.
