It Is National Pet Day

April 11th is National Pet day! If you have a pet then chances are you love them and they are a member of the family. People that care for others like our staff does here at McOmie Family Dentistry seem to by the type of people that gravitate towards furry friends. Almost every member of our staff has at least one pet at home. If our dental staff adds up our pets they far out number the humans that work in our dental office. Isn’t that funny!

This week’s post is just going to be a fun post about our animals and how we love them. So we thought we would share a few pictures of our furry friends. Share a picture of your pet in the comment section of this post, or on our Facebook page.


This is Dr. Mark and Dr. Ellen McOmies daughter Claire and their dogs Alta and Rascal

Dr. Mark McOmie grew up with many animals around his house. He counts gerbils, cats, hamsters, lizards, turtles, fish, snakes, ducks, geese, rabbits, birds, and dogs as pets as a kid. Can you imagine what his house was like growing up. You didn’t need to look far to see an animal at his house.

The Dr’s McOmie love animal of all kinds. But they are especially fond of dogs. They have had many dogs and have loved each and everyone like a member of their family. When they got married way back in 1998 they each brought a dog with them. Dr. Ellen had a Wiemeriner named Kip. Kip was a crazy dog as most dogs from that breed are, but she was a ton of fun. Dr. Mark had a dog named Maddie, and she was a Dalmatian. They loved those dogs so much.

Now they have two dogs both of them are miniature Labradoodles. They are great dogs they bring lots of joy and happiness to the family.

What About Cats?

Yes, we have team members with Cats. Cats are great they do the funniest things and can entertain you for hours with their fun antics. Cats will come sit with you and purrrrrrrr! Somehow this just makes your heart melt.

More Dogs! Dental Assistants Seem To Love Dogs

Emily’s dog named Molly. She may be a mutt but she doesn’t know it. She has a wonderful personality.

Our dental assistant Emily also has a small dog name Flo.


Dogs And Dentistry!

We all know that we should brush our pets teeth. That is a fact it is one of the hardest things to get going it seems. We love our pets and we love to take care of them. Once you have your pet trained to sit while brushing their teeth it becomes a fun things to do.

This is a crown made not exactly for a pet owner. But a crown with a tattoo forĀ  a University of Kentucky Wildcat fan. This is a blue paw print on the side of a lower molar.


Sometimes dogs need dentistry as well. These are crowns done for a police dog that broke his teeth in the line of duty. (biting a bad guy). The dog serves in Alaska so they did crown tattoos one with the United States flag and the other with the Alaska flag. Pretty cool.


Our dental assistant Kelly has two dogs, that happen to be allowed on the furniture. Who could deny them? They are so cute.


Our head of hygiene Scarlet is one crazy animal lover. She has had more pets then anyone on our staff. Growing up her at her house was a zoo. Her dad is a veterinarian so she was always around animals. She has had a wide array of animals from horses, flying squirrel, sugar gliders, cats, dogs and more.
