Aurora, the 11-month-old female cub at the Assiniboine Park Zoo, underwent a procedure Nov. 26 to clean up her chompers.   Veterinary Dentist Dr. Colleen O’Morrow, along with Dr. Chris Enright, head of veterinary services at the Assiniboine Park Zoo, and a team of specialists worked on Aurora for four and half hours. The surgery removed two baby teeth and one adult tooth. The teeth were broken and infected. Adult teeth will replace the removed baby teeth.
