Brushing Up on the Basics: Home Dental Care for Pets

February is National Pet Dental Health Month,​ which is a good reminder to stay on top of your pet’s oral health. This begs the question – what can dog and cat owners do at home to keep their pet’s teeth healthy? Join us Wednesday, February 16th at 6pm ET as Dr. Jordan Ford, Resident Veterinarian in AMC’s Dentistry Service, discusses strategies for taking care of your pet’s teeth and reviews the various pet dental products available, including their strengths and limitations.

This is a free, online-only event hosted via Zoom (https://zoom.us/​​​). A link to the event with instructions will be emailed to all registered participants the day of the event. Please email UsdanInstitute@amcny.org with any questions.

Dr. Jordan Ford was raised in West Virginia and earned his undergraduate degree in psychology from Harvard University. He worked for three years after graduation as a research coordinator at the New York State Psychiatric Institute’s Anxiety Disorders Clinic but ultimately decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.
