Alice Sievers, DVM, DAVDC is a Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College. She is experienced in general practice, emergency medicine and referral dental practice. Being a practice owner, she has business acumen in the delivery of quality patient care and client service. She rediscovered veterinary dentistry in 2006 when she was working to improve the level of care provided in her general medicine practice. She was so excited by the opportunity to raise the quality of life for her patients, and watching their energy levels increase and hearing their owners’ stories about the “reverse aging” that their pets experienced she immersed herself in veterinary dentistry continuing education and obtained board certification. She has been working as a referral clinician in dentistry and oral surgery since 2012.
Dr. Sievers has presented nationally and internationally at the Veterinary Dental Forum and the British Veterinary Dental Association. She also has presented to multiple local veterinary medical associations in Oregon and California, helping general practitioners to raise the level of dental care provided in their facilities to benefit both their patients and the health of the clinic. Additionally, she is a visiting clinical instructor at Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine, working with fourth year veterinary students in the dentistry elective course. Both didactic and laboratory teaching styles have been successful. She has received invitations to return and teach veterinary students for several years.
Dr. Sievers enjoys sharing what she has learned to help other veterinarians improve their diagnostic and treatment skills in veterinary dentistry and oral surgery. Oral health is vital to the overall health of veterinary patients and it is essential that we pursue the educational development of our ability to assess, diagnose and treat diseases within the oral cavity thereby improving the quality of life for our veterinary patients and enjoyment of practice for ourselves.
