VDS Doctor

Dr. Sara Hermanson

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from the University of Illinois


Dr. Hermanson grew up in rural Illinois with a natural love for caring for animals. With the support of her family, her love of animals and veterinary medicine grew with her. She earned her B.A. in biology through a private undergraduate college where she furthered her knowledge prior to being accepted to veterinary school. Dr. Hermanson attended the University of Illinois and graduated in 2014 with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree.

Since school, she has worked as a general practitioner in multiple practices in Illinois. During her 7 years in general practice, Dr. Hermanson’s interest and passion for veterinary dentistry began and continued to grow. She decided to pursue a residency in dentistry after attending a dental conference and meeting several board-certified dentists, Dr. Niemiec included.

When she is not pursuing more dental knowledge, Dr. Hermanson picks up one of many hobbies, the most notable of which are crochet and archery. She also enjoys spending time with her dog, Bitsy, and two cats, Falco and Kiwi.
