Ultrasound Tooth Cleaning
When was the last time you removed all the bacteria in your dogs mouth? Are you concerned by bad breath and the thought of having your dog put under anesthetic at the vet? Well the Cleany Teeth Ultrasound Service is made for you!

Ultrasound vs regular cleaning
What does it do?
Did you know we are the only Dog Groomers in the Dundee and Angus area who are trained in and offer Cleany Teeth Ultrasound Teeth Cleaning?
While some groomers offer a descale and freshening of breath (including ourselves), there are significant differences in the benefits of each treatment and how effective they are.
Plus, with ultrasound teeth cleaning there is no risk of damage to the enamel too. Just check out our quick comparison of both services to see!

Questions & Answers
Do I need to be an existing grooming customer?
Does my dog need to have a groom at the same time?
The easiest and simplest way, for both you and your furiend, is to carry out maintenance sessions are at the same time as their groom. However, if more than one initial sessions is required, they will need to visit weekly.
Don’t worry if the 4-8 weekly maintenance sessions don’t quite fit with grooms – we can advise on your options.
Can I bring more than one dog?

What is your cancellation policy?
Do you have T&Cs for the treatment?
Are there any reasons for which you can't carry out this service?
I’m afraid so – sometimes dental disease can be too far progressed for us to safely carry out any ultrasound teeth cleaning. This includes signs of decay/rot and wobbly teeth. In these cases we’d ask you to seek veterinary advice and approval before starting any treatment.
In some cases this would require teeth removal/dental work at vets then we can start on session to prevent further damage.
Do I leave my dog with you?
How do I know if my dog will let you carry out a teeth cleaning session?
The reality is we may not know until we try. However. as a minimum your furiend will need to be able to:
- Comfortably stand/sit on a grooming table for 30 mins
- Let us lift their lift
- Allow us to place a toothbrush head inside (noiseless and vibration less)
If they won’t let you lift their lip at home – then do practice with rewards/treats. With a bit of patience and time, they can quickly get to know it’s safe and no big scrubbing with a toothbrush is about to take place. We find training to the 'WAIT' command is super helpful.
My dog is not showing any signs of build up – when should I start?
I have an anxious/nervous/reactive dog – is it suitable for them?
Visiting a groomers can be stressful for a dog, though levels of stress will all come down to what triggers this (or a group of things that my trigger stack).
We can talk to you about how anxious/nervous they are and the signs that they show so we can monitor during a session but more importantly what things we can do to reduce their levels of stress. This might involve frequent trips to us before staring any session, meeting the team and getting to know us. Or it may involve you as a pawrent staying with them during a session.
If your dog is reactive to others, just let us know as we can arrange a visit when no other dogs are in the salon and a closed shop time too.
My dog won't let me brush their teeth – is this suitable for them?
We’d love a big magic button over door that would change a dogs behaviour when they get to us to help you! However, the key is whether they are just not letting you scrub the teeth with a toothbrush (and will let you lift lip and hold a toothbrush in mouth).
We do occasionally have some dogs who will let us do it but personally I hate when dog groomers/people in industry are called dog whisperers! It’s sometimes just a diff environment and relationship, where we can stand back and observe behaviour that cane sometimes aid (in exactly the same way that some dogs let their owners do things and won’t let a dog groomer).
I have a new puppy – when should I start teeth cleaning?
As with all things when they are a puppy – ASAP!
While their teeth should be pearly white, the habit of having someone lift lips, put toothbrush in mouth is so much easier to help them know it’s safe at the puppy age than later. It’s the main reason we added an intro session int our new puppy package.
However, they definitely won’t need an initial session so just ask us to add on maintenance to their regular grooms.
