First, a bit about me. I am a 1983 graduate of Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine. My interest in dentistry goes back to my first job after graduation in Roswell, Georgia where one of the owners had an interest in veterinary dentistry. After a year in Atlanta I moved to Birmingham, Alabama and became a practice owner. My interest in dentistry continued but really blossomed after attending my first Veterinary Dental Forum in Auburn in the early 1990's. I completed the alternate pathway residency program of the American Veterinary Dental College and became board certified in 2009. My practice is in the Birmingham suburbs and includes both general small animal practice and referral dental cases.
Marketing Veterinary Dentistry
In many small animal practices the dental profit center is an area that is under emphasized and has a tremendous potential for growth. Dentistry is also an area that that doesn't require a huge capital investment when getting started.
