The entire Glendale Dental Team is very excited to introduce our newest team member, Lady the Labradoodle! Lady Pickles Urbaitis is a multi-generation Australian Labradoodle born and raised in Wisconsin. She was recruited to join our team of humans to provide an even more welcoming and pleasant environment for patients of the practice. Her current credentials include friendly demeanor, fluffy coat, and huge heart. Her unique breed mix makes her the paw-fect addition to the practice! Her fur is very low shedding, which makes her hypoallergenic. She is friendly, smart, and affectionate. When she is old enough, she will be formally trained as a certified therapy dog to provide comfort and affection to those patients who wish to use her services during their visit. Science has shown benefits of therapy dogs in terms of reducing anxiety and increasing endorphins, which can make for a more pleasant dental experience overall.
In the meantime, feel free to stop by the practice and meet Lady
anytime because she can’t wait to meet you!
