Prairie Veterinary Dental Services
Creating happy pets through dental health
Meet Our Team
I have had the privilege to train with some of the most passionate and inspired veterinary dentists in the world. Through the Veterinary Dental Forum and the European Veterinary Dental Forum, I have received advanced training in areas such as endodontic therapy, oral and maxillofacial surgery including jaw fracture repair, malocclusions, periodontal treatment, and the diagnosis and treatment of oral tumors. The last 10 years of my practice has focused almost entirely on veterinary dentistry.
I worry that it sounds selfish, but a big motivation for me practicing veterinary dentistry is hearing from clients after their companion has received dental care. I love all my patients, but senior dogs and cats occupy a special place in my heart. We often mistakenly associate aging with deteriorating health and sadly, most dogs and cats have some degree of dental disease by the time they reach middle age. When we treat and cure dental disease, we eliminate pain and give our patients back quality of life. This means more energy, better moods, and an overall happier companion.
I am deeply committed to my patients, their people and my veterinary colleagues who entrust me with providing the very best in veterinary dental care. I look forward to meeting you.

It is difficult to condense Stephen’s contribution to Prairie Veterinary Dental Services. When approached by Heather, his life and business partner, to open a referral veterinary dental practice, Stephen employed his myriad of skills and helped bring PVDS into existence.
Although Stephen’s professional certification is journeyman heavy equipment technician, his accounting and business management skills, aptitude for learning “on the fly” and wellspring of ideas make him a modern Renaissance man. Stephen possesses a profound love and appreciation for Nature and animals, including his lab/pitbull, Bo, and beach “coyote”, Louis.
