Pet Dental Health Care


During every exam, your pet’s veterinarian will assess their teeth and gums. They may offer options for at-home dental care or recommend a complete oral health assessment which is performed under general anesthesia. These recommendations will depend on the stage of dental disease noted.

All of the veterinarians that perform oral health assessments and dental procedures at Eastown receive thorough training from Dr. Happel.

Dr. Happel is the owner, founder, and dentistry expert of Eastown Veterinary Clinic. She carries a strong passion for veterinary dentistry and has acquired advanced, specialized training in veterinary dental care. She is trained in orthodontics, endodontics, prosthodontics, advanced periodontal surgery, and advanced oral surgery.

All of the veterinarians that perform dentistry at Eastown receive thorough training from Dr. Happel.


Signs of oral and dental diseases in dogs and cats include:

  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth or teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar
  • Shying away from you when you touch around your pet’s mouth
  • Drooling or dropping food
  • Bleeding from the mouth
  • Loss of energy, appetite or weight loss (this combination can be a result of many different diseases, so schedule an exam at Eastown Veterinary Clinic as soon as possible if your pet is exhibiting these symptoms)
