Hang on, is your cat gorging on dry DOG food?
He absolutely should not be eating any dog food. It's formulated completely differently, both nutritionally and content-wise, than cat food. If you're talking about dry cat food, you should try to keep him away from that as well.
It's completely false that kibble "cleans" their teeth, and it's really bad for them in so many other ways. There's no point to cats eating kibble, and it might be outright harmful for him to eat dog kibble.
You could also possibly be creating future digestive issues, since he normally gets a raw diet, but then suddenly gets a huge meal of crap grains, fillers, and chemicals.
And the plaque build-up is normal. My cat is on a raw diet (not frankenprey, unfortunately, but ground meat/bones/organs) and she still gets plaque build-up. She gets a dental cleaning around once a year. Getting regular dental cleanings will help prevent gum disease and tooth loss.
