One simple dental health conversation with your clients can lead to better patient outcomes and increased clinic revenue.
Helping to prevent disease is at the core of the veterinary healthcare team’s role as experts on pet wellness.
Dental disease is the most common medical condition in dogs and cats. It is progressive, painful and can affect a pet’s overall health and longevity.
76% of dogs in the U.S. have periodontal disease
53% of pet owners have never had their pet’s teeth professionally cleaned
74% of pet owners complain about bad breath
Nearly 50 million dogs in the U.S. never receive proper dental care
With millions of pets in need, and many pet owners not taking proactive measures to protect their pet’s dental health, veterinary teams have a huge opportunity to improve health outcomes and increase revenue. It’s a win-win!
As healthcare professionals and champions for animals, veterinary healthcare teams can promote dental care as an essential part of pet health to ensure that more pets lead happier, healthier lives.

Dental disease affects 68.4 million dogs in the U.S., but it only accounts for approximately 4% of the average veterinary clinic’s revenue today.
With so many pets facing dental disease, there is a huge opportunity to improve pet health and increase revenue:
Veterinarians are the #1 source pet owners turn to for important information about their pet
Dental care revenue could increase by over 15% with more recommendations
Clinics that do not prioritize dentistry are missing the opportunity to improve long-term wellness and leaving revenue on the table.
Consider Dr. Jones: She sees 2,500 patients per year on average, and we know 3/4 of these patients possibly have dental disease:
at 25% compliance (470 patients)
In-Clinic: Professional cleaning for each patient
$260 per procedure
At-Home: Daily products recommended at each annual visit
$191 per year
By recommending annual professional cleanings and promoting a consistent at-home dental routine to clients, clinics have great potential to increase profits.
