Dr. Dean Tyson

I am one of those people who knew at the age of four that I wanted to be a veterinarian. It was not until many years later that I realized that it was much bigger than a desire or a wish, it was a calling. It is what I was put on this earth to do. I recognize that I was given the gift of communication and connection with animals, and am blessed to be able to apply the knowledge and skills that I have learned to have such a meaningful impact on the lives of animals. As an owner of Veterinary Medical Center, I helped assemble an exceptionally talented and dedicated team that inspire and amaze me every day. What I know for sure is that I am living my authentic life, I have found my place, and that I am supposed to help people and their animals.

Dr. Tyson grew up on a dairy farm in northeastern Maryland. He attended the University of Maryland at College Park for undergraduate studies and graduated from the Virginia Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 1988. He enjoys the challenges and rewards of veterinary practice and has a special interest in surgery. He joined the VMC team in 1996. He has a passion for gardening, historic restoration, and a variety of outdoor activities.
