At this point, you’d be hard-pressed to find kids who made it through puberty without getting braces. They’re the worst, but the pain that comes along with them is usually worth it in the end.

While the practice of orthodontia often focuses on beautifying people’s smiles, quite a few patients need braces and other devices for health reasons. After all, there are few things worse than not being able to chew properly, because food is basically a material form of happiness. But what if I told you that there are orthodontists out there who focus on patients of the canine variety? Don’t believe me? Check this out.

This is Wesley. After his humans realized that he couldn’t close his mouth properly, they approached a doggie dentist by the name of Dr. Moore to come up with a creative solution.

Although he looks more like a 14-year-old student than a golden retriever with those braces on, Wesley will be good as new in a few short weeks! Once his teeth are aligned, it’ll be way easier for the pup to eat comfortably. He’ll also avoid running into gum and palate complications later on.

Dr. Moore has made a wonderful career out of helping animals deal with their dental problems. He covers everything from root canals to reconstructive jaw surgeries, but his work with Wesley is pretty unique.

With the help of this inventive doctor and the staff at Harborfront Hospital for Animals, Wesley is well on his way to having a healthy smile! He’ll be chowing down on treats in no time.
