Winston & Minnie
Winston and Minnie are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels who have become our office mascots. We acquired Winston (male) from a local breeder in November 2010. He will be two years old in July. Shortly after getting Winston, we decided that he needed a playmate and acquired Minnie (female) from a differ- ent local breeder. Minnie turned one on March 1st of this year. Their sweet, loving disposition helps to calm the nerves and fears of patients who visit our office with any kind of apprehension about endodontic therapy. They have had many offers to leave us and go home with other people, but so far they choose to stick around. Next time you visit, feel free to say hello to Winston and Minnie.

Ginger & Amber
Introducing the two newest additions to the Team @ Phoenix Endodontic Group – Ginger & Amber. These two beauties are Dr. Susan Wood’s Hungarian Pointers – better known as Vizsla. Ginger, the 10 year old is on the left. Amber, although she has much more gray is actually Ginger’s younger sister – She will be 9 years old this year.
Originating in Hungary, the Vizsla was bred to work in field, forest and water. Agile and energetic, this is a versatile dog of power, drive and endurance in the field yet a tractable and affectionate companion in the home. Ginger & Amber are sweet and gentle dogs that we are happy to add to our team of mascots here at Phoenix Endodontic Group. Maybe one day we can get Dr. Wood to bring these babies to work and help to greet our patients!
