Andrea Caniglia, VMD, DACVAA

"Veterinary anesthesiologists are a small group, with the vast majority remaining in academia. After completing my residency, I knew that my goal was to bring that same level of expertise and care to the private practice setting. I wanted more patients to have access to an expert level of care. At VDS, I have achieved that goal. Finally, it gives me a great sense of satisfaction to help patients in need of oral surgery and those who have complicated medical histories or are geriatric pets. Ordinarily, these patients are deemed poor anesthetic candidates and are unable to have a procedure. However, here at VDS, we regularly help."
Board-certified in veterinary anesthesia and analgesia, Dr. Caniglia’s goal is to provide a pain-free and safe anesthetic experience for all types of patients and procedures.

Dr. Caniglia completed her veterinary degree and a three-year residency in Anesthesia and Analgesia at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. She became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia in 2012. Prior to joining Veterinary Dentistry Specialists she spent seven years working at a private veterinary specialty practice in Pennsylvania.

Outside of the clinic Dr. Caniglia enjoys time with her husband, daughters, and dogs, a Portuguese Water Dog and a Wire Fox Terrier. The whole family loves to travel, especially to Italy! Food, wine, cooking and entertaining take up her remaining free time.

Viacheslav Eroshin, DVM, DEVDC, DAVDC

"I've devoted my career to veterinary dentistry and oral surgery because the importance of this field is often overlooked, but it is one of the few specialties where a veterinarian's skills make an immediate and profound effect on a patient's quality of life.
Here at VDS, I particularly enjoy the friendly atmosphere of like-minded colleagues, combined with cutting-edge technologies and highly trained staff that allows me to treat my patients with the highest level of care. Simultaneously, offering a thorough and precise diagnosis, the best available personalized pain control and anesthesia to allow a safe, comfortable recovery after complex surgeries."
Dr. Slava Eroshin is a native Russian and attended veterinary school in Saint Petersburg, Russia. He developed a strong interest in veterinary dentistry early in his career and became one of the pioneers of the specialty in his home country. He subsequently completed his residency training in dentistry and oral surgery at Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania under the mentorship of Drs. Alex Reiter and John Lewis, and successfully passed a rigorous examination to become a Diplomate of the American and European Veterinary Dental Colleges in 2010.

As an Assistant Professor, Dr. Eroshin built a successful clinical Dentistry and Oral Surgery Service at both the University of Tennessee and North Carolina State University, where he also developed a dentistry and oral surgery course. Passionate about teaching, he has presented numerous lectures locally and internationally. He continues to teach dentistry and oral surgery at Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine in Tennessee.

The areas of Dr. Eroshin’s clinical expertise include advanced oral surgery with a special interest in endodontics, maxillofacial trauma, oral cancer and exotic mammal dentistry.

Dr. Eroshin is an active animal welfare advocate. He spent extensive time in South Pacific volunteering for the Animal Protection Society of Samoa. Other notable volunteer projects include working with rescued large felids as a member of the Peter Emily International Veterinary Foundation, and the San Francisco SPCA.

Dr. Eroshin and his wife, also a veterinarian, have two children, three dogs, a cat and a horse. When he is not practicing veterinary medicine, Dr. Eroshin can be found exploring local trails with his children and planning his next family backpacking expedition. Dr. Eroshin is a unicyclist and a former competitive judo player. Dr. Eroshin is most proud of when his 3-year old son first learned to ride a bicycle.

Dr. Eroshin is excited to be back to the city where he first stepped onto American land.

Carlos Rice, DVM, DAVDC

"My career in veterinary dentistry began after realizing how little I knew about dentistry and oral surgery after graduating from veterinary school. Oral disease is the most common reason dogs and cats visit the veterinarian and very few people know how to manage these diseases appropriately. This prompted me to pursue a residency training program in veterinary dentistry and oral surgery. I love the immediate gratification I receive when I see the difference a pain-free mouth can make in an animal's life. That gratification is also what led me to open Veterinary Dentistry Specialists.
In creating the vision for these practices, my priority was to provide world-class clinical care experience combined with concierge-level service. Together, with our board-certified veterinary anesthesiologists, and our skilled and compassionate team members, we have brought that vision to life. We have been honored to serve the animals in need and look forward to many more years of providing care at various locations."
The founder of Veterinary Dentistry Specialists, Dr. Rice is a board-certified veterinary dental specialist and Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC), with a strong track record of both academic and professional achievement.

He completed an internship in dentistry and oral surgery at Florida-based All Pets Dental Clinic under the mentorship of renowned veterinary dentist Dr. Jan Bellows, former president of the AVDC. He then completed and academic residency at the University of Wisconsin under the mentorship of Dr. William Gengler, also a former president of the AVDC. Dr. Rice then became the attending clinician of the dentistry and oral surgery service at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Rice has authored several research publications, lectures nationally and internationally on topics relating to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the mouth and face of dogs and cats.

In his free time, he is an avid cyclist and follows competitive cycling feverishly. He is an avid outdoorsman who also enjoys following the English Premier League and racquet sports including racquets and squash.
