The Academy of Veterinary Dentistry is an international organization of veterinarians with a special interest in the dental care of animals. Most of the members are active practitioners, serving the oral health needs of their patients. Some work with exotic animals in the wild and at exhibition parks and zoos. Others are involved in research, teaching, consulting and medical sales.

A Fellow of the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry is a veterinarian who has had additional training in veterinary dentistry and has passed a credentialing process and examination to achieve Fellow status.

In North America, designation as a specialist in veterinary dentistry is limited to Diplomates of the American Veterinary Dental College, who have completed a training program and passed a certification examination that includes a practical examination.
Many AVDC diplomates are also Fellows of the Academy.

The Academy of Veterinary Dentistry was formed to recognize those individuals who dedicate a significant part of their professional activities to the practice of, instruction of, or research in Veterinary Dentistry. The Academy is dedicated to the continued improvement of practice standards and knowledge in Veterinary Dentistry. We further these goals by encouraging instruction and research at Veterinary Medical Educational Institutions and by sharing our knowledge and experience with practitioners through continuing education programs.



The Academy of Veterinary Dentistry is working with the American Veterinary Dental College to provide education to pet owners and veterinarians about what is commonly referred to as Non-Anesthetic or Anesthesia Free Pet Dental Cleanings.
