Meet Dr. Jordan C. Ford

Dr. Ford launched Prism Veterinary Dentistry to create a practice in New York City solely focused on veterinary dentistry and oral surgery. His interest in dentistry first began in veterinary school where he witnessed the profound improvements in patient quality of life that can be achieved with recognition and treatment of oral disease.  He enjoys all aspects of veterinary dentistry and oral surgery, but he finds endodontics, orthodontics, and management of oral mucosal diseases particularly rewarding.
