Oral Health Care Among Species Program

Raising funds to provide and support dental health equipment for Zoo New England's animal population

Donate to our dental fund

As Zoo New England has always been a pinnacle for animal health care, dental care has also played a role. In 2016, ZNE began working with dental specialist Steven D. Spitz, DMD, who has taken care of the Zoo population, including an opossum, tamarin, potto, bush dog, jaguar, and others.

With ZNE’s assistance, Dr. Spitz has created a dental health program for the Zoos' animals. Spitz has worked with several dental suppliers and is raising funds for an upgraded dental x-ray unit that works for a variety of animal/dental sizes, equipment and supplies.
