Dr. Riskin has a special interest in Small Animal Dentistry, and is a member of the American Veterinary Dental Society.

In addition, Dr. Riskin is an outspoken advocate of pain management for our furry family members. Although they may not always show it, animals suffer from pain just as much as we do. He feels very strongly that it is critical to control our pets' pain in order for them to maintain a good quality of life. He is a member of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Managment.
