Sterling Veterinary Hospital utilizes the The ORAL ATP™ (Oral Assessment, Treatment and Prevention) program, stressing a comprehensive approach to the practice of veterinary dentistry. The framework is designed to give equal emphasis to assessment, treatment and prevention and take the veterinary practice beyond viewing dentistry in terms such as simply doing a “dental” or “prophy” in order to expand and enhance oral care for the benefit of pets’ lives.
