What Makes Us Different
What sets Animal Dentistry & Oral Surgery (ADOS) apart from the others:
Partnership and teamwork with the primary care veterinarian/hospital:
- Provide oral health care services that augment the health and well-being of our patients. We want our patients to be happier, healthier, and to live longer lives!
- We take pride in the following: -outstanding client service -state of the art specialty skills and equipment -the highest quality anesthetic skills, equipment and safety
Timely, clear and legible medical and dental record communications are provided to referring veterinarians.
Education and training:
Dr. Buelow is an American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC) Board Certified Veterinary Dental specialist. There are less than 160 veterinarians in the world with this advanced degree. This is the only veterinary dental certification recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
ADOS only employs Licensed Veterinary Technicians (LVTs). Our LVTs have attended accredited schools of veterinary technology and are certified and licensed by the state of Virginia. They each have years of specialty level training and experience in anesthesia and dentistry.
The “behind the scenes” level of patient care is second to none. Dental and oral surgical expertise and skill are state of the art, and our anesthetic techniques and safety record are world class. Because of our skills and reputation, many other specialists recommend ADOS for care of their patients’ oral health care needs.
Comprehensive oral examinations, radiographic interpretations, treatment planning, and surgical procedures are all performed by our AVDC board-certified veterinary dentist.
ADOS is located within the The LifeCentre campus, a large multiservice specialty and 24-hour emergency-critical care facility. Collegiality, communication and information sharing is high among the multiple TLC specialty services.
Safe anesthesia and treatment so that pets are not suffering with chronic infection, inflammation or pain.
Animal Dentistry & Oral Surgery Practice Location Within the LifeCentre Campus:
An added bonus of having your pet seen at The LifeCentre veterinary specialty campus is knowing that the other specialty services within the facility are available if needed. Our approach is to do what is best for the whole patient and we consider the impact of any other underlying medical condition before recommending treatment. If further work-up of underlying health issues is needed prior to a dentistry procedure, we indicate this at the time of your consultation.
