As a veterinary journalist and former veterinary practice manager, I have a solid understanding of dental disease, the importance of addressing dental problems in a timely manner, and of what’s involved with putting a pet under anesthesia. However, this comprehensive knowledge does not protect me from worrying about my cat when she’s the one who needs a procedure. When my six-year-old cat was diagnosed with a visible resorptive lesion by Dr. Andrea Tasi, ADOS and Dr. Chamberlain were my first and only choice for Allegra. Continue reading
I brought my 7 year old shih tzu Dolly from Charlottesville to Leesburg for a consultation in November of 2014. She had 16 teeth removed in 2013 and I was concerned when told by my veterinarian that she needed more removed a year later and the possibility of a jaw fracture existed either prior to or during surgery. I chose to seek a second opinion from a dental specialist before making my decision. Dr. Stiles was thorough, kind and patient in discussing our options and addressing my concerns. Continue reading
I have a small feline exclusive housecall practice in Northern Virginia. My practice emphasis is on holistic care. If any of my patients, or my own cats, need any dental care, they are referred exclusively to Dr. Chamberlain at Animal Dentistry & Oral Surgery for two reasons: I know that the services provided will be the highest “standard of care”, and that any challenge my patients’ mouths present will be handled with the expertise of a board certified specialist in dentistry. Unfortunately, tooth resorptive disease and oral inflammatory disease are rampant in the cat population, and with even my best efforts I cannot “cure” many patients with these conditions.

I want to send a very special to everyone for taking such good care of Chanel and I! I was very anxious and worried and from my first meeting with you I felt the kindness and professionalism of everyone.
Kim, you have been absolutely super and patient with me from our first meeting several weeks ago and all of my crazy phone calls and the entire day with me camped out in your waiting room.
Lauren, you reassured me that Chanel was in the best care when you came to take her in the back but more importantly it was your knowledge and conscious monitoring of Chanel throughout the procedure that I do not have the words to express my gratitude. Continue reading

The best Veterinary Hospital experience we have ever had. That is what I told our regular Veterinarian about our experience with Dr. Chamberlain and his team. Casper had a chipped tooth that had gotten infected and needed medical attention. From the initial consult to the post-operative follow up, Animal Dentistry was a joy to deal with. Upon the first meeting, Dr. Chamberlain took the time to share some education and background on Casper’s situation, and gave us several options on proceeding forward, with detailed estimates on each option. Upon setting the surgical appointment his experienced team gave us a detailed itinerary of the day’s events. The surgery went just as described, with his staff calling us at each of the steps
Dear Dr. Stiles and staff,
Please accept my sincere thanks for your excellent care of my two cats, Bob and Phineas. They have fully recovered from their surgeries last month and are so much happier now! Bob is a new cat with no more oral pain: no drooling or sticking his tongue out. Both are eating and playing like kittens.
I was referred to Dr. Stiles by University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine – Department of Dentistry. Dr. Stiles very kindly called me directly at 9:30 at night after the University contacted him about my kitties. He helped me understand their issues and fit them in to his busy schedule.
The staff at Animal Dentistry & Oral Surgery could not have been nicer. They were very kind and attentive to my needs while I spent the entire day, while the cats underwent their surgeries. I am so glad that Dr. Stiles and staff are in Virginia offering expert animal dental care; we are lucky to have them. Thank you!

Thank you all so much for the wonderful care you gave our dear little Andy for his recent root canal and extraction! You understood that we were concerned and explained every step of the procedures so we knew what to expect. Dr. Stiles and team took very good care of us all. We are very pleased with the outcome and Andy’s full recovery and are already recommending you to all our “doggie” friends!
Stonewall had surgery one month ago. The risks were pretty high as he is 14 years old, has kidney disease and a heart murmur. His teeth were in very bad shape and he was in a lot of pain. Dr. Chamberlain and his team, especially Lauren, took excellent care of my cat. Also Dr. Tyrrell provided excellent advice to bring Stonewall’s blood pressure under control. Today, one month after the surgery, I keep saying THANK YOU all for being so good and giving me back my precious cat that is free of pain and full of life. God bless you all!
It has been a long time since Buster’s surgery, but it occurred to me that I never told you how appreciative we are for your fine dentistry work. You saved our precious boy from incredible pain and a terrible fate. Not only that, you took care to spare his facial structure, lest he be concerned with his good looks! We are so grateful for what you did for Buster and for us, and we highly recommend your services.
