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.

Andrea Caniglia, VMD, DACVAA

Board-Certified in Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia

“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.

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.

Viacheslav Eroshin, DVM, DEVDC, DAVDC

Board-Certified in Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery

“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.

Becca Feuer, VMD

Resident in Dentistry & Oral Surgery

“I chose to pursue veterinary dentistry and oral surgery because of the central importance of dental health in overall health. Dental interventions have a powerful impact on improving overall health, providing pain relief, and enhancing a patient’s quality of life. I am thrilled to be part of this team of talented veterinarians at VDS.”

Dr. Feuer earned her undergraduate degree in Neuroscience from Muhlenberg College. She served as a volunteer emergency medical technician for her college and her hometown of Princeton, NJ for many years.

Melanie Hunt, DVM, DAVDC

Board-Certified in Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery

“My passion for veterinary dentistry began as a general practitioner when I witnessed firsthand the positive impact dental care had on my patients. Seeing the dramatic improvement in pets’ lives once their mouths were pain-free has been one of the most rewarding aspects of veterinary medicine for me. I feel fortunate to work at VDS with talented specialists who have all trained in different programs. By bringing together their clinical experiences from both academia and private practice, their collaborative efforts help achieve the best possible patient outcomes.”

Dr. Hunt earned her veterinary degree at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, NY. She then completed an internship at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston and returned to her home state of New Jersey, where she worked as a general practitioner and medical director for many years. This was when she discovered her love for veterinary dentistry.

Time and again, Dr. Hunt witnessed firsthand how treating a pet for oral disease and alleviating oral discomfort could dramatically improve their health and quality of life. She never tired of hearing comments like “My dog is acting years younger since his dental procedure!” or “My cat is eating much better now after her dental procedure!” In addition, she benefitted from the unique opportunity to work alongside board-certified veterinary dentists throughout her career. These experiences led her to pursue advanced training in veterinary dentistry. She completed her veterinary dentistry and oral surgery residency at Veterinary Dentistry Specialists (VDS) and became board certified in 2024. Dr. Hunt has also been a Fear Free® certified practitioner for several years and is excited to see how Fear Free techniques have been integrated into daily practice at VDS.

She enjoys traveling outside of work, spending time with her family, including a rescue cat and Labradoodle, and walking the NJ shore boardwalks.

Megan K. King, VMD, DACVIM (Cardiology)

Board-Certified in Veterinary Cardiology

“Being diagnosed with a possible heart problem is very scary when it affects a beloved four-legged family member. As a veterinary cardiologist, diagnosing and treating the disease is the first step, but I believe in educating pet parents. Teaching about heart disease, how we treat it, what to look for, and how pet parents can help at home is an integral part of our success. My goal is more tail wags, purring, and great time together.”

Dr. Megan King earned her veterinary degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. She completed a rotating medical and surgical internship, followed by a two-year residency in cardiology at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital. She then earned Diplomate status by becoming board certified in veterinary cardiology by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.

Before joining VDS, she was the head of cardiology at Blue Pearl (CARES) in Langhorne, PA. Dr. King also has a mobile veterinary cardiology service, TriVet Cardiology.

Professionally, she has a special interest in the comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of congenital and acquired heart disease, congestive heart failure, pericardial effusion, and pleural space disease.

Dr. King enjoys helping veterinary cardiac patients diagnosed with heart disease gain a better quality of life through monitoring, medications, and lifestyle adjustments. She also considers it part of her job to provide equal care for their pet owners, who often need help understanding and managing their pet’s heart problems. Her overall treatment goal is to give pets and their families more quality time together.

She lives in the Philadelphia area with her husband, two sons, and two German Shorthair Pointers, Raymond and Valee. In her spare time, you’ll find her enjoying life outdoors, including hiking, biking, skiing, being on the beach, and in the mountains.

Carlos Rice, DVM, DAVDC

Board-Certified in Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery

“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.

Dr. Rice serves on the Board of Directors for the Southern New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association (SNJVMA). His term as Secretary runs throughout 2021-22.

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.
