A Reserve Fire Fighter/Professional Photographer, Aaron Goulding founded South Coast Pet Dentals in 2007 after nearly completing his Fire Science Degree. If not for the love of animals and the battle against Periodontal Disease in pets, he would have become a full time Fire fighter. But pet dentals became his passion and so he apprenticed with Chuck Purkey of Veterinary Dental Service for two and a half years under the supervision of over 40 Veterinarians at over 20 various Animal Hospitals throughout Orange County and Palm Springs. Aaron trained with the best anastesia-free dental techs in California and soon became efficient enough and mastered his craft allowing him to work on his own.
With 9 years of hands on experience in the area of non-anesthetic teeth cleaning, he has serviced over thousands of dogs and cats, some of which he still maintains monthly to date without incident. Aaron comes highly recommended by many Veterinarians and Grooming Professionals in the Orange, San Diego, Palm Springs, Riverside, San Mateo, and Alameda areas as one of the best! He is very thorough in his cleanings and is able to detect issues in the mouth and forward that information to the on-site DVM whom is capable of evaluating, diagnosing and treating your pet at your approval.
Aaron believes that it is necessary to educate all pet owners on the importance of home dental care as well as regular maintenance cleanings to combat gingivitis and periodontal disease in your pets. He wants you to know that it is through diligence at home that your pet will have good oral health. There is no license or certificate for what Aaron does but he has mastered his technique for non-anesthetic dental cleanings on cats and dogs and operates all South Coast Pet Dentals locations under the supervision of a licensed Veterinarian as mandated by the California Veterinary Medical Board.
Kate is no stranger to the animal field. Growing up with an acclaimed animal behaviorist/trainer for a mother, it is only natural that she too dedicated herself to animals. It goes without saying that she is an animal lover with 5 animals of her own.
Dr. Danielle Spade is a graduate of Cal State San Marcos and Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (2006). Prior to receiving a BS at Cal State San Marcos, Danielle was very active in both riding for pleasure and in jumping competitively. Her days as a competitive jumper provoked interest to pursue a career in equine sports medicine. After vet school, Dr. Spade went on to complete an internship at The Equine Center in San Luis Obispo.
In 2009, Dr Spade started her own equine dentistry practice which remains one of her specialties. As a long term believer and user of holistic medicine in her own life, it was a natural transition to investigate the veterinary applications of herbal, holistic, and natural healing alternatives. That interest brought Dr. Spade to study TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) at The Chi Institute in Florida. After becoming a certified veterinary acupuncturist in 2014, acupuncture and herbs became a very popular addition to her practice. The efficacy of this path to healing and wellness has made it very popular among her clients. Dr. Spade continues the quest for the most effective treatments for her patients by continuing with The Chi Institute for advanced studies to this day.
Dr Spade’s practice is divided between her own equine dentistry practice and acupuncture and herbal treatment practice www.tothepointequine.com as well as South Coast Pet Dentals, promoters of pet health as the premiere provider of non-anesthetic teeth cleaning for dogs and cats.
In her spare time she enjoys walks on the beach with her rescued fur child Sarah, taking Flamenco lessons and singing for San Diego based rock band, Stone Horse.
