The operating room at In-Sync Exotics was a busy place over the weekend of June 24-25.

More than 13 volunteers from around the nation assisted in the efforts to provide dental care to In-Sync feline residents, four tigers, one cougar and one lion.

A team of five doctors, consisting of three veterinary dentists, Dr. Steven Holmstrom, Dr. Eric Davis, Dr. Barron Hall, one veterinarian, Dr. Brian Hewitt, and one human periodontist, Dr. Charles Dyer, donated their time and traveled to In-Sync to perform the dentistry work. The veterinary dentists and the veterinarian are members of the Peter Emily International Veterinary Dental Foundation, a nonprofit that provides advanced veterinary dental care and treatment to exotic animals located in the U.S. in captive animal facilities and animal sanctuaries.

After two days of hard work and lots of pre-planning, a total of 12 root canals and one extraction were performed at the facility. Jafar, a Bengal tiger, was one of the recipients of the donated dental work. Jafar was reported as feeling better thanks to the efforts of the team.
