How often should I clean my pet’s teeth?
The frequency of dental cleanings depends on diet, age, health, breed and the amount (if any) of home dental care. Generally speaking, pets over two years old should have a professional dental cleaning about every 6-12 months.

How do you hold the pet still?
Carefully. Our well trained staff comfortably position your pet on our Pet Mattress using gentle relaxation techniques which allow the pet to feel safe & comfortable. Even feisty pets with challenging personalities are usually very cooperative. Some even fall asleep.

Does it hurt th
e pet?
Absolutely not. We use the same gentle approach as a pediatric dental office uses with children.
How does non anesthetic cleaning compare to using anesthesia?
The results are the same for most routine cleanings. Pets with behavioral issues or advanced dental conditions may have some slight compromise, but most results are 99-100%. Mouths that have been neglected often require more than one appointment to restore oral health.

Do you polish?
Yes we do! Polishing removes any residual stains & minute deposits on affected surfaces. We use a Natural Polish to finish our Dental Cleaning

What equipment do you use?
We use an array of professional dental instruments specifically designed for each pet’s individual needs.

What pets are eligible for non-anesthetic dental cleaning?
Eligible patients include:

- Dogs & cats of all ages whose owners are concerned about the risks of anesthesia
- Young pets needing their 1st dental prophylaxis
- Senior pets
- Pets with healthy gingiva & mild to heavy calculus
- Pets with stages 0-3 periodontal disease
- Pets with medical conditions such as heart murmurs, collapsed tracheas, renal & liver conditions, Chrohn’s disease, Addison’s disease, diabetes, etc.



Dental care is very important to our pets health and is usually overlooked by most pet owners. Without proper care, teeth and gums can become infected and lead to more serious disorders. If your pet is at Stage 1 you can continue brushing their teeth on a routine basis to prevent periodontal disease or book a Clean early. If your pet is at a Stage 2 or 3 then they are in need of a full dental. If your Pet has Stage 4 Dental Disease, you will be referred to a local Veterinarian.​


A dental under anesthesia can cost anywhere from $500 - $1800 more with extractions​If your pet is not a candidate for anesthesia due to their health, medical condition or age,  you can try an Anesthesia Free Dental with Golden Prime Pet Dental.


Ask your Vet Clinic for a Referral Today especially if you have an older Pet or they cannot have Anesthesia due to illness.​
