What our customers say

  • Aaron has been cleaning my pup's teeth every 3 months with his non-anesthetic method a little over 4 years now. My dog’s groomer of 7 years was the one who encouraged me to try Aaron’s service knowing that I had a horrific experience with another anesthesia free service at a well-known San Diego do it yourself dog wash where the technician had manipulated my dogs jaw open with perhaps a stick (she would never allow anyone to watch). My dog feared her at all 3 visits, and I could hear my dog whimpering & crying behind the locked door during the service. I felt like a bad dog owner when I learned from a 60 minute episode what may have been happening in that room. As a result of the last traumatic visit, my dog had trouble chewing hard food for almost a year. Aaron is very different. He was compassionate about my skepticism and fears so allowed me to witness his method during the first visit. He is so incredibly gentle, and uses his index finger to gently open the jaw, NEVER a stick. My dog loves and doesn’t fear him, and why Aaron has won me over. I will follow Aaron where ever he goes to give my dog sparkling white and healthy teeth & gums and fresh breath. K.C. (the Killer Chihuahua) is 10 now, and her teeth looks like she’s only 3. Thanks Aaron for all you do to help the community by rebuilding our confidence in anesthesia free dental care for our dogs.

  • You guys are great! I trust you and can tell you care about all our pets! Thank u for being patient and kind to both us and our furbabies! See ya in 6months!
  • Won't have anyone but Aaron do my dogs teeth Thanks to Dr Spade for administering an oral sedative that Aaron recommended last time to make the cleaning easier for my dog and for Aaron!
  • I have been using South Coast Pet Dentals, Aaron Goulding for the past 10 years.  He has been performing once a month, anesthesia free dental on both of my yorkies during this time. When I take them to their veterinarian for vaccines they are always mentioning that it's time for have my dogs teeth cleaned and then they look in their mouths and remark at how clean and healthy their mouths and teeth look.
    It always makes me happy since a dental visit at the vet would run in excess of $500 per dog and they have to be put under.  
    I attribute both of my yorkies health to having healthy teeth and gums and to Aaron and his knowledge.  He always informs me of everything going on and what needs to take place.  My oldest Yorkie is approaching 17 and my youngest is approaching 11.  I highly recommend South Coast Pet Dental and Aaron Goulding, and for making this investment for your fur babies. -Josie Coleman, HAPPY CUSTOMER SINCE 2008

  • “I love you guys! I'm telling as many of my Bay Area friends as possible (I just hope you don't become so coveted that I'm not able to get an appt for Tika!)”
    Love, Theresa

New Clients: What you can expect when we meet with you and your pet


Step One, Check-In

The Dr. will check you in and collect information on you and your pet. The Dr. or technician may have a quick look in your pet’s mouth to assess the build up and then walk your pet back to the work station.

Step Two, The Cleaning Process

The technique will depend on the size of the dog but usually starts out with a quick greeting and warming up to your pet. Next, the technician will choose a technique comfortable for your pet. The Technician will then begin the cleaning by gently holding the muzzle while hand-scaling the teeth. This is where heavy calculus build up is removed. For pets with areas that require a deeper cleaning or for stubborn tartar, an ultrasonic scaler is used (Only on those pets that can tolerate it.) This tool helps to vibrate away tartar while rinsing with water in areas that are difficult to clean with a traditional hand-scaler and is very effective at cleaning above and below the gum-line.

Step Three, Polish & Rinse

Once calculus and plaque are removed from all surfaces of the teeth, your pet is ready for the final stages of the cleaning. Your pet’s teeth are then machine polished with an all organic paste safe for cats and dogs. Finally, your pet will receive an organic oral rinse to kill off any bacteria remaining along the gum-lines. The entire process may take anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour (or more in rare cases, depending on many variables.)

Information for “First Time” clients While most first-time dentals can be completed in less than 30 minutes, some dentals can take up to 1 hour or more and there is no recovery time for your pets! The on-sight Veterinarian may offer a sedative for those pets that exhibit signs of stress or try to bite. The type of sedative that we offer is in the form a shot and is injected into the muscle. Sedation may last for approximately 1 to 2 hours or longer for larger or heavier pets.

Professional Machine Polish It’s important to note that all dental scalings are followed up with a machine polish to ensure your pets teeth and gums stay healthier longer. If you are using another service be sure to ask if they are using a machine polisher. If they are not then you are not receiving a complete service and may want to consider trying our service.

How do I know if my pet if my pet needs an anesthetic dental? Though we do not offer anesthetic dentals, we do believe there is a need for them under emergency circumstances such as major oral surgeries due to abscesses, fractures or loose Canines and Molars. Such situations can be evaluated by our on-site DVM at no extra charge and recommendations will be made usually during the “First Time” cleaning.
