See Form To Be Signed Below

Caroline and Kimo Soper of Canine Smiles have offered Anesthesia Free Teeth Cleaning (AFTC) in the Austin area for over 16 years in addition to our grooming services please see ( ​Canine teeth cleaning scaling and polishing of the teeth can be accomplished to remove plaque and tartar build-up, ​without anesthesia is dependent on our ability to train your dog(s) to allow us to perform this procedure. AFTC involves training your dog to relax in a calm environment using our step-by-step proprietary behavioral techniques, developed over many years. It is important to consider that humans learn to tolerate routine teeth cleaning procedures without anesthesia and most dogs (approx. 95%), because of their learning ability, can as well. 

This service is available for dogs of all ages, however, it is particularly suited for senior dogs as many owners of these dogs eventually halt anesthesia cleaning because of potential risks. 

Tartar buildup can result in advanced periodontal disease with its subsequent degradation of a dog's overall health. AFTC is not appropriate for dogs who already have dental disease present (this often requires work that cannot be accomplished while they are awake, such as dental x-rays, tooth extractions, etc). 

After appropriate clinical corrections are made by your veterinarian, the AFTC procedure may be performed for the remainder of your dog's life. Your veterinarian must examine your dog and sign the AFTC authorization form on the back of this page prior to providing AFTC service normally annually. A  report and chart on cleaning results will be sent to the veterinarian and client.
