What Our Clients Have Said About Us

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Buelow and her team. From the time I made the appointment to the time I left, I felt comfortable that Allegra was getting the best possible care. They truly care about each and every one of their patients. They understand how anxious pet parents get when it comes to anesthesia. Their compassion and client communication is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced in the years I worked in the veterinary profession or in my interactions with veterinary clinics since then.



My poor girl had been shot in the face at some point and still had multiple bullet fragments left in the roof of her mouth! Dr. Buelow and her team were fantastic from start to finish! She and her team were professional, thorough and very caring through the whole process. They kept us informed with multiple updates during and after her surgery. Dr. Buelow did an amazing job on such a big surgery and I want to thank everyone for treating Jessie with a level of kindness and love that went above and beyond! I would highly recommend them for any dental needs your pet may have, especially if it is unique and needs a specialist!

Neemo has been our pride and joy since we first adopted him a year ago.

We were referred to Dr. Buelow for a severe malocclusion problem. Dr. Buelow and her wonderful staff made me feel at home and at ease right away. Our Neemo had 6 teeth extracted to fend off future issues.

The day of Neemo's procedure we had no doubt he was receiving excellent care, and we were kept in the loop the entire procedure. The compassion shown to us that day will not ever be forgotten. I would highly recommend anyone needing dental care for their pets to contact this practice. The administrative staff was top notch as were all the techs. Dr. Buelow had great compassion for Neemo and told me she would take care of him as if he were her own. She truly did and we are truly grateful to all!

We had a wonderful experience at our animal dental specialist in Leesburg at Animal Dentistry & Oral Surgery within The Life Center. My husband and I were very nervous having our seven month old puppy have anesthesia.

The staff couldn’t have been nicer. They informed us of each stage Teagan went through. They even took a picture of Teagan coming out of anesthesia.

I was so grateful to the Doctor’s technician holding my baby as she was waking up. The restorations were beautiful. After working in a dental office for 43 years, I was impressed with the office and the quality of dental work that was performed. I highly recommend this office.

My little cavoodle, Lucu, sadly broke some of her teeth and as her mom, I was just beside myself! After my local vet discovered this during a regular checkup, they recommended Dr. Buelow. From the moment I walked into Animal Dentistry & Oral Surgery, I was greeted with a warm smile and kindness from Kim at the front desk.
It's rare to find such amazing customer service and professionalism; Kim calmed all my worries and concerns. I was escorted to an exam room where I awaited the arrival of Dr. Buelow. Before I could even say hello, she came in the room and said, "I see Lucu looking at me"...she already knew my dog's name and made me feel not only at ease but a priority and her main concern. We discussed Lucu's procedure together; I received patience through all my questions, understanding of my concerns, kindness and assurance as I was even crying a bit worried about what was to come. After the consultation, I left the office knowing my little Lucu would be well taken care of with Dr. Buelow and her team. A few weeks later, the procedure date arrived and although I was quite nervous, Dr. Buelow and her staff again made me feel right at home. Lucu was a strong patient and I can't thank Dr. Buelow and her team enough for taking such good care of us.

My cat had severe periodontal disease & had to have most of his teeth extracted. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Buelow and her team. They were very thorough in explaining the surgery, the estimated cost and what to expect after surgery. They kept in contact with me during the surgery which was a huge comfort because I was a nervous wreck. They went over and above to calm my nerves and ensure my cat was comfortable and would have the least amount of stress possible. I am so thankful I found this facility. I am also very grateful to Dr. Buelow & her team for taking such good care of my lil guy. This is the only place I will ever take my pets to for their dental needs.

I was very happy with my dog's experience here. My dog broke his tooth and had to get his tooth extracted. Everyone at ADOS was very nice, patient, and empathetic toward my concerns. They explained everything very thoroughly before and after his surgery. I loved that they called me with updates throughout the day, which made me feel better! They even called and checked in the next day and week after the surgery. I was impressed by the amount of care they gave to me and my little guy, especially when I don't see that type of care with my own doctors for my own care! I highly recommend this place as they are very professional and do a great job.
