Veterinary Anesthesiologist/Full Time – Madison, New Jersey

Position open for immediate placement. Practice opens July 8, 2024.

Veterinary Dentistry Specialists is currently seeking a full-time veterinary anesthesiologist to join our new practice in Madison, New Jersey. Madison is a lovely town located in North Jersey approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes by car or 45 minutes via commuter train from Manhattan. This is a unique opportunity to practice high-level specialty medicine, with state-of-the-art equipment, in a small, friendly environment. At VDS, we pride ourselves in having a collaborative work environment with mutual respect for individual expertise. We offer an unapparelled work-life balance and total compensation package. The work week is 4 days, with no weekends or holidays, and minimal on-call responsibilities. Finally, there are several senior anesthesiologists in the VDS network who are readily available for support and collaboration. Applicants should be a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia. Exceptional communication skills and the ability to be a leader are absolute requirements.

The primary role of the anesthesiologist is to provide and manage a full anesthesia service to complement the dental surgeons. This should include both perioperative and postoperative care for all cases. Direct involvement in managing cases, along with providing support to an anesthesia-focused technical staff, is expected. The anesthesiologist will be directly involved in reviewing all medical records for each case to determine suitability for anesthesia, planning additional diagnostics, and formulation of a complete, personalized, anesthetic plan.

The anesthesiologist should also be involved in meeting clients and discussing anesthetic risks directly. Part of our core values at VDS is to have open discussions with clients about risks, our standards of care, and importantly, build a relationship with them. It is important that clients have the opportunity to meet with, and ask questions directly of, the anesthesiologist as this differentiates our practice.

The anesthesiologist is integral to the efficient running of the practice, and management of the surgical schedule. This requires working closely with the CSR staff to train/educate them on the types of procedures, and length of time for typical cases and identifying higher-risk patients that may need additional diagnostics or case review before scheduling a surgery. The anesthesiologist will work directly with the CSR staff to assist with how to appropriately pair cases and the number of cases per day. In addition to management of the schedule, the anesthesiologist is responsible for the management of the surgical cases that are admitted, planning the order of the day, managing staff breaks, and case turnover, and assuring adequate time for recovery. Finally, we expect the anesthesiologist to cultivate and support a culture that values the technicians as integral team members and works closely with the dentist to build a cohesive team committed to high-quality patient care.

Team building and leadership is an essential role of the anesthesiologist. Recruiting anesthesia technicians and training them on all aspects of anesthesia to VDS standards is vital. Building relationships with the referring veterinarians and being willing to provide them consultation on cases and training for their staff is important in helping both the community and building the business. Willingness to participate in VDS lecture series and CE events is desired.

Please direct all inquiries to Andrea M. Caniglia VMD, DACVAA at: or 856-242-9253.
