Dental Referral Services
Main Street Veterinary Hospital is pleased to offer advanced dentistry to your patients by referral.
We are equipped to perform digital dental radiography, periodontal surgery, endodontic therapy, restorations, oral surgery, and orthodontics. We appreciate you entrusting us with the care of your patients, and will honor that trust by addressing only dental-related concerns; we encourage you to perform your patient’s workup prior to referral, including bloodwork and chest radiographs if indicated.

If you have questions or concerns about anything you may have experienced in the past, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. I am available for telephone consultations, and you can send radiographs and pictures by email to firstname.lastname@example.org for initial evaluation. If a situation arises when you have a patient under anesthesia, please call the hospital at 972-355-0008. If I can come to the phone, I will; if I also have a patient under anesthesia at the time, we can have someone relay responses and answers in real-time. I have even taken calls on my day off, particularly if there is any ongoing problem with a patient that needs immediate attention. -Dr. Heidi Lobprise
“I have never been to a vet that was so caring; the entire staff was amazing. I felt like they treated my dog Rascal like he was one of their own and answered all my questions in great detail. I felt blessed to have been referred here.”
