Pet dental care is a key component of your dog or cat’s preventative vet care. Over time, bacteria in your pet's mouth can build up and spread throughout the body, affecting their teeth, gums, and overall health. Regular dental checkups and cleanings can prevent long-term problems before they start!
My cat had dental surgery and everything went so smooth, I’m so happy with how everything went. They did the surgery in their van right outside our house so no transportation required which my cats absolutely hates. The best part is he got to come right back inside after and recover in the comfort of our home. Highly recommend if your pets hate going to the vet!!

I took my Chihuahua, Roxy in to have a tooth extracted that was infected. I was referred to Dr. Steve from a neighbor and I thank him tremendously. Dr. Steve and his Assistant Chris took in Roxy and were so caring and sweet with her. I had just met the two gentlemen and felt so comfortable and trusting with my pet. Claudia his secretary called me the following day to ask me if everything was okay with Roxy and if I had any issues tom please feel free to call Dr. Steve...I highly recommend the vet to anyone who would ask.
Had dental procedure done on my dog. Staff was caring and compassionate. Received calls prior and during procedure. Also received photos and videos. I highly recommend BetterVet.
Highly recommend my Pet's MVP & Dr. Kingsley for veterinary services! I was referred for dental work for my cat from another mobile vet in the area. I'm a cat owner, so mobile services are my number one priority but hard to find in the Austin area. It's a huge anxiety reducer to not have to put my cats in a carrier and drive them to a vets office because they usually require sedation to drive in the car.
Scheduling: It was easy to set up a dental cleaning for my cat. I went to their website and filled out an online form, and they got back to me promptly. They were very informative and answered all of my questions via email.
Oral health is paramount to good health. This is the absolutely best dentist I have ever been to. His team is fantastic. You can’t do better.
Couldn't be happier. Prompt, efficient, and friendly. Pre-cleaning dental appointment. All of my questions were answered. No fuss and speedy. Vet services most everywhere are expensive. Doesn't mean I need a lot of time spent to feel I get my money's worth. In fact, less stress overall if in and out, and that's what was provided. Thank you!
