Dentistry and Oral Surgery Service

The Dentistry and Oral Surgery Service at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals offers routine dental care and treatment of advanced dental and oral diseases in dogs, cats and exotic pets. Our staff includes two board-certified veterinarians who specialize in treating a wide range of conditions including maxillofacial trauma, oral tumors, developmental defects and salivary gland disease.

Our specialists offer advanced diagnostic techniques including full-mouth radiographic studies and dental charting. We routinely perform advanced imaging studies prior to treating maxillofacial trauma and oral tumors. We work in a state-of-the-art suite equipped with digital radiography, rotary endodontic instrumentation, air-driven dental units, and a piezoelectric oral surgery unit.
