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) helping Bindi the Wombat with the repair of a fractured tooth, which was causing Bindi to have trouble chewing. Ongoing advice regarding dental treatment is also been provided to Zoos SA when required.
Recently we attended the 'Teddy Bears Picnic' event, running a dental health awareness stall to promote positive oral health habits to children.
