Adelaide and Monarto Zoo (Zoos SA)
Zoos SA, which operates Adelaide and Monarto Zoos is a charitable conservation society that exists to save species from extinction and connect people with nature. We are proud to be the “Dental Clinic of Choice” for Zoos SA, and actively support the Animal Health Centre at Adelaide and Monarto Zoos.
In partnership with staff at the Adelaide Zoo, we run annual oral health activities in conjuction with the Zoo during events such as National Dental Health week to raise awareness of the importance of good oral health for all ‘animals’ young and old!
We also lend our skills and support to help the Zoo care for their resident animals, with Dr Greg Miller (our Principal Dentist) and his team assisting in the delivery of treatment to a wide scope of animals and providing ongoing advice regarding dental treatment to Zoos SA when required.
