Veterinary Dental Specialist

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.
