Meet Dr. Tina Brandon Abbatangelo. She’s the director of the School of Dental Medicine at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She’s an animal dentist who learned her chops from the father of that field. Oh by the way, she was named
Ms. Nevada 2016.

Impressed yet?

Long interested in animal care, Dr. Brandon Abbatangelo decided to explore it further after a dental exam given years ago to her new puppy, Lola. Not long after, serendipity brought her into the orbit of that specialty’s leading practitioner.

“I met Dr. Peter Emily at an animal dental forum in 2008,” Dr. Brandon Abbatangelo told Incisal Edge. “The following weekend, I worked on a few chimpanzees, a lion and a couple of tigers at a sanctuary in California.
I was hooked.”
