Veterinary dental disease is often known as the “silent” disease. Your pet cannot tell you when they have a dental problem, making it difficult for you to know when he or she needs treatment. Frequent oral examinations and annual preventative dental cleanings for both dogs and cats are recommended. Dental disease can lead to infections, discomfort or pain, decreased quality of life and more serious health issues. You can be certain you are providing your dog or cat with the best professional dental care available at ALL PETS DENTAL/ Hometown Animal Hospital in Weston, FL.
We understand that special place your dog or cat has in your family, and we take great pride in treating your pet like a member of our family. Call for an examination appointment, your best friend will thank you!

What is a board-certified veterinary dentist?
The American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC) is the board certifying organization for specialists in veterinary dentistry and oral surgery. The veterinary dental specialist is trained in advanced oral surgery, medicine and dentistry. Veterinary Dental Specialists identify and treat periodontal disease, perform root canals, place metal crowns, repair jaw fractures, remove oral cancer, and correct orthodontic abnormalities. Advanced diagnostics, including dental radiology and laboratory evaluations, allow proper diagnosis of the oral abnormalities and related medical problems. Since patients with oral health problems usually require general anesthesia for evaluation and treatment, veterinary dental specialists also receive extensive training in the safe and effective use of anesthesia and pain management. All Pets Dental also has the availability to use a board certified anesthesiologist by appointment.
For more information, please go to the AVDC website.
What does "Board Certified" mean?
Board certification is the highest level of specialization that may be attained in the veterinary field. Specialty certification requires completing 3 to 6 years of training in the area of specialization beyond the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree. All candidates must also pass advanced credential requirements and an extensive written and practical examination. When these requirements have been met, the applicant is designated as a Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College, Board Certified Veterinary Dentist, Veterinary Dentist, and Veterinary Dental Specialist. Dr. Bellows is also board certified by the American Veterinary Board of Practitioners as a both a dog and cat specialist with advanced expertise in companion animal medicine and surgery
