That's what gets me, all that harping (yes, even about S/N to an extent) when you then price it out of range. Dentals? Wouldn't touch them with a ten foot pole at their price. Instead actually I've found good food and chews do the trick anyways - I check pup's teeth regularly (and my vets have never voiced any concern re: teeth) but even with my previous dogs, I've been able to keep their teeth healthy with the right bones and dentabones and feed.
