We've never been advised to wait (to control an infection) before extracting a bad tooth. However, a canine dentist may advise otherwise. Most, if not all, Vets are trained to extract teeth. I've never heard of anyone(any Vet) filling a canine tooth but I suppose it's not out of the question. That leads me to question the need for a canine dentist, 'cept for issues with the jaw, perhaps.
Canine medicine, however, is becoming more and more specialized. Begs the question, is it more about the quality of care or more about the $...a little of both, maybe? Hmmmmm
I agree, any vet should be able to extract the tooth. My dog just lost her front teeth in a fight with my other dog
