Maria - Dental Hygienist
Maria recently moved to Texas from Minnesota to be with her fiancé James. The biggest adjustment so far has been the hot Texas weather, but she has her pet yorkie Minnie by her side to help with the adjustment. She has been in the dental field for ten years, seven of those years as a hygienist. We love the way she interacts with our patients by asking questions, listening to their response and placing their best interest above all. You will find that her motivation, empathy for patients and enthusiasm for the dental hygiene profession is what makes her an exceptional hygienist.

Terrie has more than 25 years experience in dentistry working in all aspects of dental care. She has been in this office more than 10 years and serves our patients as our scheduling coordinator. That title does not adequately describe what Terrie does and means to this office. She is the “heart” of Pretty Smiles. It is Terrie’s sweet, enthusiastic voice that patients first hear when calling our office. She is the voice that new patients hear calling their name when they enter our office for the first time because she is expecting you. It’s Terrie’s voice that you may hear some late afternoon or evening when you are recovering from some illness or a loss in your family. It’s Terrie calling just to see if you are doing well and wanting you to know that she is thinking about you.
Terrie says that”I love the interaction with patients and I try very hard to make this office different from other medical or dental offices. I want each patient to feel special and important because they are. We are honored that they have chosen us to care for them."
Married for 35 years, Terrie and her husband have a beautiful daughter. She loves shopping and spending time with her family. Her hobby in photography gives her great pleasure whether she is “shooting” her daughter, family gatherings, a wedding, or nature. Her attention to detail and her desire for excellence makes her a really good photographer and is reflected in how she relates to our patients.
Terrie’s quote: “Smiles are great investments. The more you collect the better you feel!”
