Erin C. with Diesel
I had an incredible experience with the team at Veterinary Dental Center of Atlanta for my dog Diesel’s dental procedure. From the moment I arrived for our first appointment and expressed my concerns, the staff put my mind at ease. They took the time to educate me and thoroughly explain Diesel’s issues, never once making me feel pressured or like just another patient. They even took me through the entire process, leaving me with no guesswork or confusion about the treatment plan or out-of-pocket expenses.
On the day of Diesel’s surgery, I was offered a beautiful, relaxing room to hang out in, work and wait. Before the surgery started, Dr. Reed reviewed Diesel’s X-rays and explained the immediate and potential future problems. Together, we decided on a treatment plan that was best for Diesel. During the surgery, I was periodically given updates and put at ease that my baby was doing great.
Six months after his initial surgery with Dr. Reed, we did follow-up X-rays, which showed progression of the potential future problems we had already discussed. It was then that we decided to take the rest of his teeth. Although I was nervous for his quality of life, Dr. Reed educated me and gave me helpful reading materials and resources to do my own research and understand that even with no teeth, Diesel would still be able to live a happy and healthy life.
We ended up removing Diesel’s last few teeth, and my only regret was not doing it sooner. Diesel is almost 15 years old now, and he is so full of life, energy, and personality, all thanks to Dr. Reed and her team. She truly gave him more life, a better life, and we are forever grateful. I highly recommend the Veterinary Dental Center of Atlanta to anyone looking for top-notch dental care for their pets.
