Dr Josephine Banyard is a Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College and accepts referrals from Promontory, Sardis, Fairfield Island, elsewhere in the Fraser Valley and beyond. As a 1981 graduate from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, Saskatoon, little was taught with regards to veterinary dentistry. In 2005 she entered into a training programme to specialize in the field of veterinary dentistry when she realized how important oral health was to her patients.
She has written an easy to read book, 'Healthy Mouth, Healthy Pet: Why Dental Care Matters', (available through Amazon, AAHA bookstore, and VIN bookstore) to help the public understand dental disease and what their veterinarian is recommending.
Dr Banyard is committed to developing a library of You Tube videos to help the public understand veterinary dentistry in order to help their pet's have a comfortable mouth for their whole life.
