The number of dental procedures performed on pets has been steadily increasing over the past ten years. From our ‘ignorant’ early days (let’s face it – we were not taught much on oral diseases in pets as undergraduates), Veterinary Dentistry now makes a significant contribution to small animal practice income.

Today, dental radiology is an essential part of practicing quality veterinary medicine. In the USA, intraoral radiology is close to being standard practice if you want to diagnose and treat oral diseases.

In this issue of Professional Liability, we’ll look at three closed claims with older, small-breed dogs that sustained jaw fractures during dental procedures.

This is a case report by Adjunct Associate Professor Anthony Caiafa of the North Coast Veterinary Specialists in Sunshine Coast Queensland, Australia.

As veterinary dentists, we know that the needs of our four-legged patients demand the most specialised attention. Pets that come in to our clinics have individual needs—a proof that a generic solution does not work for all of them. Every condition and every patient profile require a tailored treatment that is perfected only through years of periodontal practice.
