We cannot thank Dr. Beckman & staff enough for taking care of Dayla.
It’s very expensive for dental care for the pet. I wasn’t expected that big bill of over $1,700 though. Good thing I took good care of my dog’s teeth that I brush her teeth 1-2 times/wk in addition to professional teeth cleaning once/yr or every other yr (now after this expensive bill, will be brushing her teeth everyday!)
As most of us are aware, animals — and cats in particular — are very stoic and are able to instinctively hide their discomfort. I was very disturbed to hear that both of my precious kitties were probably dealing with some level of pain. My local veterinarian recommended, due to the involvement, that they be referred to a veterinarian dentist, since there could be some possible complications during tooth extraction of felines with this condition. That is how I ended up with Dr. Brett Beckman, certainly a veterinary dentist with excellent credentials, and, I must say, that was one of my best decisions, even though his clinic is a little more than an hour’s drive.
Both Max and Katie were visually and orally examined and underwent surgery the same day. Annie Mills, Dr. Beckman’s Licensed Veterinary Technician, called me during both procedures to advise me of Dr. Beckman’s findings, I then gave them the go-ahead, and she called me again when my cats were in recovery.
As the owner of two cats that are now 4 days post-op, I can attest to the fact that they appear to be quite comfortable, have been eating just fine (even the evening of surgery), and both have been doing a lot of head-butting and purring. I feel greatly relieved that the source of pain has been taken care of, and I strongly urge all pet parents to consider annual dental cleaning and full-mouth radiographs — and to take recommended action at first sign of tooth resorption or any other dental disease.
I wish to express my appreciation to both Dr. Beckman and Annie for taking such good care of Max and Katie. It is obvious to me that you truly care about the animals that are entrusted to you for “repair” and that you ultimately give our precious pets the very best possible treatment to enable them to enjoy the comfortable life they so deserve.
Anne Mills was wonderful. She was very caring and professional. I would recommend them to anyone who has any problems with their pets mouth.
As a medical professional, I was delighted to see such high quality care delivered routinely. From examination to follow-up, my little Havana Silk Dog was given care that was unsurpassed. Thank you.
Dr. Beckman’s assistant, Annie Mills, was also very helpful throughout the process. She handled the scheduling of our appointments, answered questions, and provided an estimate of costs once we knew what problems needed to be addressed.
After only a few days, our dog is now eating regularly and appears to feel better than she has for months. We appreciate the work of Dr. Beckman and his staff and highly recommend his services to anyone with a dog who needs dental care.
Dr. Beckman checked out our cat for several minutes while I waited in the private waiting room, and he brought back high resolution photos on his laptop of several teeth and the likely procedure necessary for them. I received an updated price quote right then and kitty went back to begin sedation so XRAYs could be taken to get a better understanding of what was going on. We were shocked to learn how much damage he had that wasn’t easily visible and that he must have actively been in pain with a tooth reabsorption and what appeared to be a recent run in with furniture or other hard surface where he broke multiple front teeth with roots exposed and a cracked tooth. Thinking back my husband and I recall when this happened, when he was trying to jump onto the dresser and missed.
I received up front price quotes, explanations of everything that would be happening, and I felt very comfortable with the process and trusted my kitty in the hands of Orlando Vet Dentistry. As of this review writing, we’re 5-days post-Op and our cat is doing wonderful. His breath is 100% fresh, not even a hint of stink… NOTE the original bad breath is plaque and bacteria which needs to be cleaned and inspected by a trained professional!
Kitty never lost his appetite after the cleaning/surgery and the pain medication they prescribed was just right and not too much, he’s ~8lbs, he was up and about immediately following the procedure. I do not feel that another Vet could have done a better job. Dr Beckman and his Staff are great, and I received follow-up emails with his xrays and exactly what was done, including his vitals during the procedure etc, to add to our home files. Our cat will be seeing Dr. Beckman and his Staff again for future cleanings and checkups!
