Polar Bear in Yorkshire Park Gets a Dental Visit and Check-Up

A team of 30 people was enlisted to ensure a polar bear got checked by a dentist. Nurses, keepers, firefighters and vets composed the team that helped the dentist do an exam.

Key takeaways:

– The polar bear had a discolored tooth which caught the attention of park keepers at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

– The dental checkup of all the 42 teeth and an x-ray took about two hours.

– Victor, the bear, appeared well relaxed after the successful procedure. The exam showed nothing was amiss and no treatment was necessary.

Yorkshire Wildlife Park drafted in rangers, nurses, vets, firefighters and a dentist to inspect Victor’s teeth after keepers spotted one tooth was a different colour.
