Dr. Shanna Landy - Veterinarian

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. She then returned to Dallas to be with her husband, a student at UT Southwestern, and near her grandmother.

In 2019, Dr. Shanna Landy started her Dentistry and Oral Surgery residency at Cornell under the mentorship of Nadine Fiani, BVSc, DAVDC, FF-AVDC-OMFS, and Santiago Peralta, DVM, DAVDC, FF-AVDC-OMFS. Prior to completion of her residency, she took on the role of adjunct faculty member for the Dentistry and Oral Surgery Service at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals.

Dr. Shanna Landy 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. 

During her spare time, Dr. Shanna Landy keeps herself busy with running, rock-climbing, 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.

“We took our dachshund puppy here when she got sick one Saturday night. They were very quick to initiate the needed treatments which we were very thankful for. The veterinarians and staff were knowledgeable, caring, compassionate, and VERY patient with us as we asked a million questions. Their communication was very reassuring (updates 24/7, answered questions appropriately and timely). We cannot thank them enough for saving our puppy's life!”
