Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota Hires New Vet Dentist
Date:7/10/2013

Oakdale, MN (PRWEB) July 10, 2013

Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota is excited to announce that they have hired a board-certified veterinary dentist to add to their complement of specialty medicine including critical care, internal medicine, and advanced surgery. Dentistry is one of more than 20 specialties currently recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).

Dr. Elizabeth Brine, DACVD, has advanced training beyond the oral examinations and dental cleanings that a typical family veterinarian performs. She obtained training and specialist certification through the American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC), meaning she can offer advanced treatments such as:

-Endodontics: Treatment of fractured teeth/pulpitis, pulp exposure, root canals, tooth abscesses.
-Orthodontics: Correction of common malocclusions, orthodontic appliances, bite evaluations, and genetic counseling.
-Oral Surgery: Difficult extractions, jaw fractures, palate defects, oronasal fistulas, oral tumors, and dislocated teeth.

When asked what made her decide to be a veterinary dentist, Dr. Brine responded, “Veterinary dentistry is such an interesting mix of dentistry, medicine and surgery, and dental disease is present in almost every pet’s mouth. Owners are always telling me that their pets even act younger now that the hidden strain and pain of dental disease is being treated! It is those stories, usually told at the recheck examination, that daily confirm my decision to become a veterinary dentist.”

Dr. Brine also recently started volunteering for the Peter Emily International Veterinary Dental Foundation (PEIVDF) http://www.peteremilyfoundation.org which sends teams of veterinary professionals to treat wild animals with dental disease. Many of these animals have been rescued from private owners that neglected and exploited them. As a result, many have broken teeth and have experienced pain for years. The work that Dr. Brine does relieves that pain and elevates these animals’ quality of life dramatically.

Dr. Brine tells the story of a dog whose outward behavior became aggressive due to dental pain: “I had a client that insisted we look for a dental problem in her twelve-year-old dog. This dog had undergone a dental cleaning (but not dental x-rays) at the family veterinarian five months earlier, but the issue hadn’t resolved. The dog was now fighting other dogs in the house. My examination and all the blood work appeared normal, but when I x-rayed the entire mouth, extensive abscesses around the tooth roots of both lower first molars were revealed. It was a hidden and very painful problem that would’ve remained hidden if the owner hadn’t insisted upon seeing a veterinary dentist.”

Pets deserve a healthy, pain-free mouth; there are several options available to save teeth or to remove diseased ones and concentrate on the healthy teeth that remain.
