BIOLASE announced an arrangement with Pet Dental Services (PDS), the #1 non-anesthetic pet dental provider in the country, to integrate BIOLASE’s diode laser technology. PDS’ vision in the animal health care profession is to gain the trust and confidence of veterinarians throughout the country and to provide service through veterinary hospitals coast to coast. PDS has been providing anesthesia-free dental care for over 10 years and has established an excellent reputation among a network of more than 300 veterinarians.
Through adopting BIOLASE’s diode laser technology, PDS will now provide veterinarians with one of the most cutting-edge care available for their pet patients. According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of periodontal disease by the age of 3. In these cases, bacteria infects gum tissue and the roots of teeth resulting in disease and tooth loss.
In addition to the negative impact on oral health, bacteria can also enter the bloodstream through the large blood vessels located near pets’ gums and teeth. Organs with the highest blood flow are most susceptible to infections, including the lungs, heart, kidneys, liver and even the brain. Damage to these organs caused by infection can drastically shorten pets’ lives.
“Our industry-leading diode laser technology is designed to be a great fit for a non-traditional dental care provider like Pet Dental Services,” said John Beaver, president and CEO of BIOLASE. “With a focus on offering veterinarians and pet owners experience and expertise that is second to none, we believe Pet Dental Services promises the very best in anesthesia-free dental care for dogs and cats. The adoption of our innovative technology can help fulfill that promise. Not only does our technology treat periodontal disease, it can also help pets live healthier lives.”
PDS’ representative said of the partnership, “The integration of the latest dental technology is key to providing superb non-anesthetic patient care. Working with pets in this environment can be a challenge, but with the right techniques and tools–like BIOLASE’s diode technology–pets too can enjoy the exponential benefits of excellent dental care. We strive to provide pet owners the most innovative care for their beloved pets. BIOLASE will help us to do just that.”
