How's That Smile?

In this podcast, Dr. Linda DeBowes, veterinarian at Shoreline Veterinary Dental Clinic in Seattle, talks about the importance of dental health for our pets.


Dental health in our companion animals is just as important as it is for us. Without proper dental care, they can get severe dental disease, making at home dental care very important. This includes, but is not limited to, daily teeth brushing with pet toothpaste, oral rinses, and diets formulated for dental health, all of which are available here.

Signs your pet can show that may indicate dental disease include bad breath, decreased appetite, red, swollen or bleeding gums, and swelling of the face. For the times when at home dental care is not enough to keep your pet's teeth and gums healthy, Somerset Veterinary Hospital is equipped to perform a variety of dental services including:

  • Dental cleaning, scaling, and polishing procedures - not only do we clean the tartar build-up on the surface of the teeth, we clean under the gumline too, where a majority of dental disease is found

  • Digital dental x-rays - these x-rays are of vital importance in investigating what is happening to teeth below the gumline, which aids in planning dental extractions, finding broken tooth roots, and identifying otherwise undetectable dental disease processes

  • Dental extractions -  we have the equipment to extract (pull) any teeth that are determined need to be extracted to improve the quality of life of your pet
