Sarah Bronko, DVM

Resident in Dentistry & Oral Surgery

“While I was working in a primary care setting, I noticed the resounding difference that treatment of dental disease made in my patients’ overall health and happiness, and the great improvement in quality of life that they experienced. I have now found the best job in the world, helping relieve pets from dental pain every day, and educating pet owners and other veterinarians about the importance of preventative and therapeutic dental care.”

Dr. Bronko graduated with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in 2013, where she was a member of the Phi Zeta Veterinary Honors Society. She worked in Vermont for eight years as a small animal general practitioner, followed by two years working in a general practice (limited to dentistry), before joining the VDS team. 

While in a primary care setting, Dr. Bronko noticed the resounding difference that treatment of dental disease made in her patients’ overall health and happiness, and the great improvement in quality of life that they experienced. She believes that she has found the best job in the world, helping relieve pets from dental pain every day, and educating pet owners and other veterinarians about the importance of preventative and therapeutic dental care. Dr. Bronko is also passionate about making your pet’s clinic experience as calm and stress-free as possible – she is a certified Cat-Friendly Veterinarian and has been Fear Free Certified for both dogs and cats. 

She lives in Philadelphia with her husband, Ben, and their two tabby cats. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, cooking and baking for her family, and gardening.

S. Bryce Dooley, DVM, MS, DACVAA

Board-Certified in Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia

Dr. Stephanie “Bryce” Dooley has lived in six different states and two different countries but calls the Jersey Shore home. After growing up with a love of horses, she earned her veterinary degree from St. George’s University School Of Veterinary Medicine with the intent of becoming an equine veterinarian. During her third year of veterinary school, a professor inspired a deep fascination about the discipline of anesthesia.

She completed an equine internship at University Of Illinois Veterinary Teaching Hospital, followed by a residency in anesthesia at The Ohio State University. It was at OSU that she developed a strong interest in teaching and was awarded the Hospital Service Award for Resident Recognition. During her residency, she discovered a keen interest in managing patients with cardiac disease or life-threatening systemic illness. She also enjoyed locoregional analgesic techniques and understanding the science of pharmacokinetics.

Dr. Dooley became Board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia in 2017. She remained at The Ohio State University as a clinical instructor before moving back to New Jersey. Prior to joining VDS, she worked as a locum anesthesiologist for private practices and academia, traveling across the United States and even making her way to Canada for a few weeks.

She enjoys anything to do with horses, learning about cars, completing home improvement projects, and of course spending as much time as possible with her two adopted, silly Cockapoos, Ozzie and Emma.

Kirk Herrmann, DVM, DAVDC

Board-Certified in Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery

“My passion for animals started at a very young age and being a veterinarian was the only thing I could ever imagine as a profession. My path to pursue dentistry and oral surgery came when I was able to witness the incredible transformations in the lives of pets following treatment of their oral diseases. It’s fulfilling to see the improvement in the quality of life of both the pets and their owners when the gifted team at VDS diagnoses and surgically treats their diseases. We have long known the importance of oral health in human medicine, and it is my goal to provide that level of comfort and care for our beloved pets!”

Dr. Herrmann grew up in Bucks County, PA where he graduated from Delaware Valley College. He earned his DVM in 2016 at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. Following a rotating internship at the Veterinary Specialty Center of Delaware, he continued his education with a residency in Dentistry and Oral Surgery in Gaithersburg, MD under the guidance of Dr. Mark Smith and Dr. Kendall Taney. In 2022, he became a Diplomate (board-certified specialist) of the American Veterinary Dental College.

His clinical interests include periodontal surgery, endodontics, feline stomatitis, interceptive orthodontics, and oral surgical oncology. Outside of the office, Dr. Herrmann enjoys spending time with his dog, Yams, in the outdoors and his large extended family.

John Lewis, VMD, DAVDC, FF-OMFS

Board-Certified in Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery

“My years in general practice taught me the transformational effect of dental care. Many pet owners have shared that a dental procedure has transformed their dog or cat into a youngster again! Specialty training taught me the finer points of life-saving procedures, such as removing oral cancers and jaw fracture repair, and these are some of the most rewarding cases. The great thing about VDS is our uncompromising patient care. Each patient receives the best care in the finest facility from the best staff and world-renowned specialists.”

Dr. Lewis is past-president of the American Veterinary Dental Society. Dr. Lewis graduated from University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1997 and spent five years in general practice prior to returning for a residency in dentistry and oral surgery. He became a Fellow of the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry (AVD) in 2004 and a Diplomate (specialist) of the American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC) in 2005. Dr. Lewis is past-president of the American Veterinary Dental Society, and he is active on various committees of the AVDS, AVD, and AVDC.

At the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Lewis served as associate professor of Dentistry and Oral Surgery, associate director of the Mari Lowe Center for Comparative Oncology, and Chief of Surgery.

Dr. Lewis’ clinical interests include endodontics, feline tooth resorption, feline stomatitis, oral surgical oncology, noninvasive jaw fracture repair, and lasers in oral surgery and dentistry. When not treating patients or teaching veterinary dentistry and oral surgery, he enjoys spending time with his wife, six sons, two dogs, and two cats.
