Dr. Shanna Landy - Veterinary Dentist


Dr. Shanna Landy was born on a military base near Monterey, California, and grew up just outside of Houston, Texas.

She left home for Cornell University, where she graduated with her Bachelor of Science in 2013 and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2017. After a couple of years in emergency and primary care, Dr. Landy started her Dentistry and Oral Surgery residency in 2019 at Cornell under the mentorship of Nadine Fiani, BVSc, DAVDC, FF-AVDC-OMFS, and Santiago Peralta, DVM, DAVDC, FF-AVDC-OMFS. Before completing her residency, she took on the role of the adjunct faculty member for the Dentistry and Oral Surgery Service at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals. Now, Dr. Landy has joined us in the beautiful Rockies with her husband, accepting a position at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus.

Dr. Landy is board-certified in veterinary dentistry and oral surgery and is a Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College. She has a keen interest in complex maxillofacial surgeries such as tumor resection, reconstruction procedures, and cleft palate repair, as well as companion exotics dentistry and oral surgery. She is the Associate Editor of Oral Surgery for the professional journal Veterinary Record Case Reports.

During her spare time, Dr. Landy keeps herself busy with hiking, rock climbing, paddle-boarding, fiction-writing, and playing, designing, and spectating board and video games. She and her husband share their home with the energetic corgi-mix Pippin, gentle Border collie-mix Yuna, and a very naughty cat named Momo, who Dr. Landy rescued after he was hit by a car as a kitten and required intensive facial trauma care.
