I am Dr. Amalia Zacher, but my friends call me “Molly”. I have been practicing dentistry & oral surgery exclusively for over 5 years in the greater San Jose, and San Fransisco area. I have always loved animals, and that’s one of the reasons I chose to become a veterinarian.
Dr. Zacher graduated with a B.S. in chemistry from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and then completed a second B.S. in biology from UC Santa Cruz before applying to veterinary school. After earning her doctorate in veterinary medicine at UC Davis, Dr. Zacher completed a small animal rotating internship at San Francisco Veterinary Specialists followed by an academic residency in dentistry 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 & 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.
