Dr. Mathis is in the final boards testing process after training under Dr. Heidi Lobprise, DAVDC. Prior to formal dentistry training, she became a certified veterinary medical acupuncturist and a certified veterinary pain practitioner with the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management. Treating the mouth is treating/preventing pain. Veterinary dentistry blends her two loves - pets and arts and crafts! Veterinary dentistry is the arts and crafts of veterinary medicine.
