Marissa Berman, DVM
Practice Limited to Dentistry and Oral Surgery
Dr. Marissa Berman discovered her love of veterinary medicine, and dentistry in particular, while volunteering with a board-certified veterinary dentist back in high school. She earned her veterinary degree at Western University of Health Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine in Pomona, California. She continued her training by completing an internship at Long Island Veterinary Specialists in Plainview, New York. Dr. Berman then worked as an emergency veterinarian for five years, caring for pets with all types of illnesses and injuries. She was accepted into a dentistry residency program at a private practice in Northern California, which she completed in 2020.
Her family includes a four-year-old Pit Bull mix named Tater Tot, her husband, Mike, and twin sons, Tyson and Saxon. Tyson is named after her seventeen-year-old Yorkie, who followed her from high school through her residency. Being by the water, traveling, and spending time with her family is what she enjoys most.
S. Bryce Dooley, DVM, MS, DACVAA
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.
Elizabeth Goudie, DVM, MS, DACVAA
“I found my passion in veterinary medicine early, I was in my second year of veterinary school, first week of classes, and I fell I love with anesthesia. For me, anesthesia’s draw comes from its need for a combined knowledge of medicine and physiology with an acute demand for problem solving. In clinical practice, anesthesia is vital for so many facets of veterinary medicine and the ability to facilitate procedures to improve animals’ quality of life is incredibly fulfilling.
At VDS I have the opportunity to manage anesthesia for high-risk patients and ensure patient comfort while working with a tight knit group of people that are passionate about what they do; make pets’ lives better!”
Dr. Elizabeth Goudie graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and completed a three-year comparative anesthesiology residency at the University of Minnesota, during which time she researched local blocks, tramadol pharmacokinetics, and hyperalgesia as it relates to beta-3 cells and brown adipose tissue.
As a board-certified veterinary anesthesiologist, Dr. Goudie oversees the care of anesthetic patients before, during and after their anesthetic procedures. She also helps create a plan for postoperative pain relief after any painful dental or oral surgery procedures.
Dr. Goudie's clinical interests include pain management of orofacial trauma and anesthetic management of high risk patients including those with cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, liver, and endocrine diseases. When not at work, Dr. Goudie enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, dog, cat, and hens. She enjoys being outside as much as possible whether it is running, hiking, or gardening.
John Lewis, VMD, FAVD, DAVDC
Founding Fellow, AVDC OMFS Fellowship
"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."
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.
