On this episode of The Vet Blast Podcast, Dr Jan Bellows sits down to talk about what is on the horizon for veterinary dentistry
Although February is National Pet Dental Health Month, pet oral care is something that veterinary professionals and their clients should be thinking of all year round. To learn what is to come for veterinary dentistry this year, Jan Bellows, DVM, DAVDC, DABVP, FAVD, joins The Vet Blast Podcast host Adam Christman, DVM, MBA, to offer a preview.
Below is a partial transcript. Listen to the full podcast for more.
Jan Bellows, DVM, DAVDC, DABVP, FAVD: Yes. I mean, because generally, [researchers] actually did a research project out of the University of California that if you just find one dental lesion somewhere, there is a 50% chance that there will be others. So for veterinarians, just X raying what they think is a problem and not doing the full mouth, they're missing a lot of disease. Plus, wonderfully, is that so many clinics are offering wellness plans now that include dentistry and includes full mouth X-rays. So there's nothing to sell other than the wellness plan and in our practice, not only do they get the full mouth X-rays, they get a CT also once a year. I mean, it's just, it's a great plan.
