The VDCNC is located in Durham, NC and was founded by Don Hoover, DVM, Fellow of the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry, in 2016. VDCNC was established to focus on providing advanced dental services and oral surgery to dogs and cats across North Carolina. Dr. Hoover has over 15 years of experience with advanced dental procedures. In 1998, Dr. Hoover became one of the first veterinarians in North Carolina to make dental radiography a part of routine dental procedures. Since then, Dr. Hoover and his staff have completed over 6,000 dental procedures on dogs and cats.

Dr. Hoover is leading a very experienced team that includes Katie Rankin, RVT, VTS (Dentistry), Jessica Compton, RVT, and David Eyster. Katie has been working in advanced dentistry for ten years and passed the credentialing and examination process to become a Veterinary Technician Specialist in Dentistry in 2014.
