DENTAL AND ORAL SURGERY FOR PETS
|Client Lounge | Dr Hale's Office | Examination Room | Staff Lounge | Treatment Area | Ward
Our brightly- lit client lounge is appointed with very comfortable leather chairs and a loveseat. Many clients have been caught napping in these chairs (and dogs seem to like curling up on them as well).
A Keurig beverage centre allows us to offer several warm drinks (coffees, tea, hot chocolate).
Beyond the lounge is the reception desk. Behind Stephanie is the client restroom - no need to make your way into the dark recesses of the back room to freshen up.
My little oasis - a quiet, comfortable place for me to take phone calls and tend to paperwork.
After checking in at the front desk we will meet in the examination room. Here is where I will do my initial assessment and discuss treatment options. That is Kim, RVT aiding Dr. Hale (now retireed) as he examines a patient.
We have a small staff lounge where we can take our breaks and our meals.
These views are of our large treatment room.
In the first view, you see the treatment tables with the anesthetic machines and fluid pumps above, the wall-mounted dental x-ray machine and on the shelf are several monitoring devices. Other equipment shown includes one of the dental work stations, the radiosurgical unit and smoke evacuator, and the warm-air patient warmers used for thermal support during surgery.
This second view shows my antique dentist's cabinet. To the left of this is the scanner used to digitally process the x-ray sensors we use. A sink and storage space fill the rest of the image.
At the other end of the treatment area is the RVT work station. Here they sharpens instruments, manage inventory and other paper work. To the left is a bank of cages, mostly used for storage but one is available for cats and small dogs who are waking up from their anesthetic (large and medium dogs recover on a thick cushion on the floor). To the far left is out air-purifier.
