|Stephanie Dean, DVM
Dr. Dean graduated with distinction from The Ohio State University, College of Veterinary Medicine, in 1997. She was a 1993 graduate and varsity athlete of Miami University (Go, Redhawks!), and moved to Westlake shortly after completing veterinary school. She has a "World's Best" kitty named Oliver and silly French Bulldog named Symon. Here, she is pictured with her English Mastiff, Legend, who passed away in the summer 2012. She jokes that the Frenchie is the "travel size" version! She has dedicated herself to providing the very best veterinary care through client education and delivering health care excellence with compassion. Her areas of interest include dentistry, soft tissue surgeries, integrative internal medicine, and pain management. She has completed accreditation in Veterinary Acupuncture at the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and finds that adding an Eastern perspective to her traditional Western training provides another level of patient evaluation and additional, exciting, and effective options for patient care.
