Maxillofacial surgery and CBCT

DentalVets has taken a significant leap forward in its commitment to comprehensive veterinary care by establishing its new Maxillofacial Surgery department, spearheaded by the specialist Ingrid Tundo. This new department, housed within the recently completed building extension, is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including a sterile theatre and a cutting-edge Cone Beam CT scanner. These advancements pave the way for delivering advanced maxillofacial surgical procedures, positioning DentalVets at the forefront of veterinary medicine.

Led by Ingrid Tundo, a seasoned expert in maxillofacial surgery, the department embodies a dedication to excellence and innovation. With years of specialised training and hands-on experience, Ingrid brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to the team, ensuring that patients receive the highest standard of care available.

The addition of a sterile theatre within the new building extension marks a pivotal milestone for DentalVets. This dedicated surgical space is meticulously designed to meet the stringent requirements of aseptic technique, minimizing the risk of surgical site infections and promoting optimal patient outcomes. Equipped with advanced surgical instruments and cutting-edge technology, the sterile theatre provides a controlled environment where complex maxillofacial procedures can be performed safely and efficiently.

One of the hallmark features of the Maxillofacial Surgery department is the inclusion of a Cone Beam CT scanner, commonly referred to as a CBCT. This sophisticated imaging technology offers unparalleled clarity and precision, allowing veterinarians to obtain detailed three-dimensional images of the maxillofacial region with remarkable accuracy. By capturing high-resolution images in real-time, the CBCT enables precise preoperative planning and enhances the surgeon's ability to visualise anatomical structures, ensuring precise surgical interventions.

The integration of advanced maxillofacial surgery capabilities positions DentalVets to address a wide range of complex conditions affecting the oral and facial regions of companion animals. From congenital anomalies such as cleft palate to traumatic injuries and neoplastic diseases, the department offers comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic services tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Among the advanced procedures offered by the Maxillofacial Surgery department are cleft palate repair, maxillectomy, mandibulectomy, and internal rigid fixation. These intricate surgical techniques require specialised expertise and precision, both of which are hallmarks of Ingrid Tundo's approach to patient care.

Beyond the technical aspects of surgery, the Maxillofacial Surgery department at DentalVets emphasises compassionate and holistic care. Recognising the emotional bond between pets and their owners, the team provides comprehensive support and guidance throughout the treatment process, ensuring that clients are informed and empowered partners in their pet's healthcare journey.


In conclusion, the inauguration of the Maxillofacial Surgery department at DentalVets represents a significant advancement in veterinary medicine. With a focus on excellence, innovation, and compassionate care, the department is poised to make a meaningful impact in the lives of companion animals and their families.
