New for 2019, we are offering a choice of two options for each dental exam.


The North Wind Package:

Comprehensive oral exam including annual baseline radiographs (x-rays) and any additional radiographs that are needed due to a concern noted on oral exam. The price for this package is $290 for existing patients (seen in the past 3 years) and $370 for new patients (give or take a few dollars for sedation). Recheck appointments throughout the year will be priced the same as the basic package and any necessary radiographs will be included, provided recommended timing on the chart is followed.


The Basic Package:

Comprehensive oral exam without radiographs (x-rays). The price for this package is $190 for existing patients (seen in the past 3 years) and $270 for new patients (give or take a few dollars for sedation). If radiographs are recommended due to a concern noted on oral exam and you elect to move forward, they will be priced at $50 per view. (For most concerns, at least 2 and up to 8 views are needed for diagnosis.) Recheck appointments throughout the year will be priced the same as the basic package and any recommended radiographs will be priced per view.


The North Wind Package includes individual radiographs recommended for specific issues noted in the exam, but it also includes a complete set of radiographs of all the teeth. The complete set is recommended to allow the veterinarian to diagnose any issues above or below the gum line not evident in the exam. Since so much of the tooth is below the gum line for much of a horse's life, this is the best way to make an early diagnosis of periodontal (gums and ligaments around the tooth) disease, endodontic (the tooth itself) disease, as well as impacted teeth, oral tumors, and jaw problems. Catching these problems early often allows for treatment to stop the progression of the disease and may prevent pain and the need for extractions and/or surgery for your horse.
