MEET THE TEAM

Dr. Arthur Vail, III

Welcome back! Dr. Vail spent the last 4 years gathering valuable experience and training on his journey to Norfolk with his wife, Shannon, while she served with the US Navy. In his 5 years of practice, he has adopted the clinical practices and protocols of the world renowned Dr. Strupp and Brumm based out of Clearwater, FL. His specialities include their tried and true painless injection method, as well as excellence in esthetic and restorative dentistry. 

Dr. Chelsea Cross

Dr. Cross graduated from UMSOD in 2018 and recently completed a general practice residency program at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. She has been a part of the Vail Dental Associates team since 2012, when she worked as a dental assistant. She is excited to join the practice in a new capacity as a restorative dentist and is working alongside Dr. RT to introduce new programs to ensure the most positive experience for each patient.

Dr. Arthur Vail, Jr

When Dr. Vail first started practicing alongside Dr. Watson in July of 1983, he had a crystal clear vision that he has executed over the course of his 30+ years of practice. Dr. Vail was also a part time educator at the University of Maryland, School of Dentistry (his alma mater) for 21 years where he instructed pre-doctoral students as they learned the nuances of clinical dentistry. 

Dr. Patricia Kihn

Dr. Kihn, who is a 1990 graduate of UMSOD, has been practicing with Dr. Vail since 1997. She also spent a few years teaching dental anatomy and occlusion to freshman dental students at UMSOD.

Dr. Otto brought 30+ years of private practice experience with her in July 2016 when she joined Vail Dental Associates. After graduating from UMSOD in 1984, she became an associate clinical professor and clinical examiner for two years before beginning her long and successful career as a general dentist.
