In order to maintain our high standard of dental and oral surgery services, we require that payment be made at the time services are rendered. We provide itemized estimates for all dental procedures and oral surgeries at the time of the initial examination and they will remain valid for 30 days. All efforts will be made to make your pets treatment plan estimate as accurate as possible with a conscious (awake) oral examination. Keep in mind, a thorough oral assessment of your pet’s condition is not complete until an exam and intraoral radiographs are performed under general anesthesia. The doctors of the Florida Animal Dentistry & Oral Surgery Center will always contact you after completing your pets anesthetized oral examination and dental radiographs to discuss and explain any additional findings or potential treatment plan changes if needed. If charges will exceed those quoted by 10% or more, we will attempt phone authorization from you before proceeding.

Frequently Asked Questions
- What’s involved with scheduling an appointment and is a referral necessary?
As a referral center, we are dedicated to working in collaboration with you and your family veterinarian to provide your pet with the highest level of professional, compassionate and personalized dental and oral surgery care. To schedule a referral appointment, all you have to do is call the staff at the Florida Animal Dentistry & Oral Surgery Center and we will do the rest. We will obtain all medical records and dental radiographs prior to your appointment to allow your visit with us to run as smooth as possible. At the time of scheduling, we will ask if you are interested in scheduling a consultation alone, with intentions of returning another day for the procedure or if you are interested in just scheduling the consultation and procedure for the same day. To ensure continuity of care, the doctors of the Florida Animal Dentistry & Oral Surgery Center will work closely with your family veterinarian throughout the process and provide them with a detailed referral case report that will include all clinical findings and treatments, in addition to a copy of your pets dental radiographs the same day as your visit.
If you have any further questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact the Florida Animal Dentistry & Oral Surgery Center at (561) 515-6711.
- What to expect on your pets initial visit?
The doctor and staff of the Florida Animal Dentistry & Oral Surgery Center will strive to make your visit as comfortable and easy as possible. Our goal is to work in collaboration with you and your family veterinarian to provide the highest level of dental care possible for your pet. If you have scheduled a procedure the same day as your initial appointment, please do not feed your pet after 10pm the night before the procedure, although water can be given throughout the evening.
The morning of your scheduled appointment all we ask you to do is bring your pet and a list of all their current medications. Since your family veterinarian has recently referred you, Dr. Wiegand and his staff will already have obtained and reviewed your pets medical records and any dental radiographs available. During the initial visit, we will first sit down and discuss your pets medical history, medical records, current medications and review any existing dental radiographs. After performing a detailed conscious oral examination Dr. Wiegand will discuss in detail all clinical findings and all potential treatment options including estimated costs, clinical expectations, potential complications and needed post procedural care. This will be done so you completely understand how your pets dental disease is affecting their life and the benefits of treatment. Dr. Wiegand will address any questions or concerns you may have regarding your pets dental and oral surgical care.
In most cases your pets procedure will be scheduled for the same day as your initial appointment and your pet will spend a majority of the day with us. Most of our patients will be discharged between 4-7 pm. During your pets stay with us they will be walked regularly and receive endless attention by both the staff and doctors. You will be contacted several times during the day to keep you informed of your companions care. The first call will be made after completing your pets anesthetized oral exam and dental radiographs, at this time Dr. Wiegand will discuss any additional findings or treatment plan changes if needed prior to going forward with treatment. The second call will be made to let you know that your companion is in recovery and set up a time for discharge. At the time of discharge, we will sit down and discuss all aspects of your companion’s care and treatments throughout the day. You will receive a written discharge form that clearly explains all necessary home care instructions and copies of your pets dental radiographs and case pictures.
Your family veterinarian will be kept fully informed throughout the process and will receive a complete referral report, including dental radiographs by the next business day at the latest.
