Dr. Sanders - Veternarian
Dr. Connie Sanders is an Arizona native and grew up in the Verde Valley. She has a long history of animal care, including raising show pigs and rabbits as part of her 4-H projects. She was also a certified veterinary technician for several years prior to returning to veterinary school. Dr Sanders loves to travel and see the world. Graduated from Oklahoma State University in 2015 and moved back to Arizona shortly after. She joined the Pet Dental family in June of 2017 and has been loving it ever since.
Dr. Sanders has a strong desire to help pets maintain wellness and to help educate owners in that goal. She also always had an interest in dental health as a technician, so it was an easy transition to providing dental care as a veterinarian.
We are proud to have Dr. Sanders leading our Prescott Valley team.
Kristina - Lead Veterinary Technician
Kris is our lead veterinary technician. Before joining Pet Dental in December 2014 Kris worked as a veterinary technician for seven years. Kris has experience working with small and large animals. Kris loves that Pet Dental focuses on dentistry because it is often dismissed or overlooked in veterinary care. Kris enjoys educating clients about the importance of preventative care and how periodontal disease can negatively affect a pets life. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with loved ones, hiking with her Australian Shepard and anything else that will keep her outdoors.
