Brushing is PAWsome! Introducing a Therapy Dog Into Your Practice” with Dr. Gila Dorostkar

This video is free to view but no CE credits are offered.

Highlights of my presentation include how our family’s Golden Retriever, Aspen, became a certified therapy dog, officially introducing her into our practice routine, training Aspen to be chairside, and researching operational considerations such as liability insurance. Aspen’s effect on our patients has been magical and heartwarming and her presence in the office has been therapeutic for our entire team.
