We’re proud to announce, Shoreline Veterinary Dental Clinic has merged with Blue Pearl and Seattle Veterinary Specialists. The doctors and staff of SVDC will be moving their practice to the Seattle Veterinary Specialists Downtown hospital on the corner of 8th and Madison. Doctors DuPont, DeBowes and Riehl provide specialist dental and oral care for dogs and cats. Our three board certified veterinary dental specialists will continue to work towards an environment that helps minimize stress for both their clients and their pets. The new dental suite and dental operatory is equipped with state-of-the-art dental, anesthesia, and monitoring equipment. In our new Downtown hospital environment, we’ll have the added opportunity to serve patients and clients in need of other specialty services including CT, MRI, and intensive care.
Our entire staff is dedicated to providing the highest quality care available for pets and their families. Services we provide include endodontics (root canal treatment), periodontal therapy (periodontal surgery including guided bone regeneration), trauma repair (soft tissue, tooth, and bone), tumor surgery, orthodontics (treatment for malocclusion when it affects health, comfort or function), restoratives (caries removal and restoration, crowns), extractions, and oral medicine.
