Meet the Dentistry Team

William Rosenblad, DVM

Dr. Rosenblad does more than just clean teeth. He leads the dentistry service in treating periodontal disease — the single most common disease in pet cats and dogs — fractured teeth, orthodontic problems, jaw fractures, oral tumors and other oral diseases. Instruction in recognition, diagnosis and treatment of dental and oral diseases is given daily to interns, residents, veterinary staff and visiting students and doctors. The use of dental radiography and other appropriate diagnostics is a special focus.
