Meet the friendly staff at Silicon Valley Veterinary Specialists!
Veterinarian Dr. Amalia Zacher has been practicing dentistry and oral surgery for more than 5 years, and has been working in the greater San Francisco Bay Area for more than 3 years.
Dr. Zacher graduated with a B.S. in Chemistry from California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and then completed a second B.S. in Biology from UC Santa Cruz before applying to vet school. After earning her doctorate in veterinary medicine from UC Davis, Dr. Zacher completed a rotating small animal internship at San Francisco Veterinary Specialists, followed by an academic residency and oral surgery at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Zacher is particularly interested in oral surgery, periodontal disease and endodontic disease. She published a review of veterinary oral and maxillofacial surgery techniques in the May 2013 issue of Veterinary Clinics of North America: Small Animal Practice. Having grown up in the Bay Area, Dr. Zacher is happy and feels very fortunate to return home and practice her passion- veterinary dentistry. In her spare time, Dr. Zacher enjoys hiking and going to the beach with her long term boyfriend and her dogs, as well as enjoying fiction, natural history and ethnic foods.
