Welcome

Advanced Animal Dentistry is the Veterinary Dental Referral practice based in Brisbane, Australia. We provide Veterinary Dental consultancy to a number of large referral centres in Brisbane on a rotational basis. If your pet or patient requires advice or treatment in relation to a Veterinary Dental issue or Oral Surgery problem, Advanced Animal Dentistry can provide the answer.

 

Formed in 2006 with the partnership of Dr Gary Wilson and Dr Aaron Forsayeth, Advanced Animal Dentistry is the largest referral Veterinary Dentistry business in Australasia. Advanced Animal Dentistry continues to grow, providing services to all areas of Brisbane and other parts of Queensland, Australia and Internationally.

 

In 2015 we took on our first Resident, Dr Rebecca Tucker. Bec has quickly become an important part of Advanced Animal Dentistry, bringing with her excellent clinical skills, fitting right in with Gary and Aaron. With an expanded team, Advanced Animal Dentistry hope to be able to offer a more extensive range of Veterinary Dental options for animals here in Brisbane and throughout Australasia.

 

All members of Advanced Animal Dentistry are active members of the Australian Veterinary Dental Society (AVDS) and the Australain and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (ANZCVS).


ADVANCED ANIMAL DENTISTRY – QVS NORTH LAKES
Advanced Animal Dentistry is excited to be able to extend their services to Veterinarians and their patients* with the opening of QVS Northlakes.


Advanced Animal Dentistry can assist with the referral of many types of cases. With expertise across many species and many years, we provide assistance with cases involving all oral tissues and pathologies, not just teeth! Some of the common services provided by Advanced Animal Dentistry are:

  • Root Canal therapy – fractured teeth can be saved with this treatment. Loss of the tooth is not the inevitable outcome for all fractured teeth.
  • Orthodontics – our patients can be significantly affected with pain and dysfunction with poorly positioned teeth. Moving these teeth into the normal position can be done and provides positive patient outcomes.
  • Treatment of Base Narrow Canines – whether intervening at early stages or salvaging older patients, base narrow canines are a common issue seen with some breeds. These are painful, but resolvable, situations for the patient.
  • Complex extraction cases – full mouth extractions in cats with Chronic Gingivostomatitis, or dogs with difficult to extract damaged teeth. Extractions can be a difficult undertaking in some patients.
  • Oral surgeries – Secondary Cleft Palate repairs, chronic Oro-nasal Fistula repairs, oral tumour surgeries.

Advanced Animal Dentistry is looking forward to working with the Vets and animals* of North Lakes and beyond, and particularly working with the amazing team at Northlakes Specialist and Emergency Centre.

 

Consulting at QVS Northlakes is on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month.


*All cases by referral only.

 


VETERINARY DENTISTRY:

Veterinary Dentistry is defined as dentistry of animals other than humans.  It is the branch of professional veterinary practice that involves the consultation, evaluation, diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and prognosis of conditions, diseases, and disorders of the oral cavity and maxillofacial area, and their adjacent and associated structures, as well as the evaluation of the contribution of systemic conditions to oral health and the contribution of oral conditions to the overall health of the individual patient.

Veterinary Dentistry includes the dental disciplines of

    1. Endodontics - Root canals, Vital pulpotomy
    2. Orthodontics - Moving inappropriately positioned teeth
    3. Oral Medicine - treatment for diseases of the mouth
    4. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery - tumour surgery, reconstrunction surgery, soft palate surgery
    5. Paedodontics - dental treatments for younger patients
    6. Periodontics - advanced techniques for saving teeth affected by Periodtonal disease
    7. Prosthodontics - crowning of damaged or likely to be damaged teeth
    8. Restorative (Operative) Dentistry - management of the diseases of the teeth
