Meet Our Team


One of the first faces to greet you upon entering our office is Jackie. Her warm and engaging personality will immediately make you feel welcomed and happy to have chosen Smile Solutions as your new dental home.

Jackie joined our office staff after a successful and distinguished career in teaching. Adults and children alike are drawn to her for her genuine ability to comfort and listen. She just knows how to make anxious and nervous patients feel "at ease". She treats everyone with kindness and attentiveness.

It's not uncommon for patients to "pop-in" unannounced just to "schmooze" with Jackie to talk about anything and everything.

Jackie and Dr. Berg have been married for over 40 years. They have two sons, three grandsons, a granddaughter and Murphy, a mini Labradoodle. When Jackie is not at the front desk, she is either working out, playing tennis, tending to her artistic gardens, or figuring out crossword puzzles or word games.


Janine started her dental career 17 years ago. She has worked for several dentists in Suffolk and Nassau county. In October 2005, she met with Dr. Berg and immediately knew Smile Solutions was where she belonged because at Smile Solutions everyone is treated like family.

Janine's funny sense of humor helps patients relax and they look forward to coming in for treatment. Don't be surprised if you see her jump out of her chair every time a Jimmy Buffet (her favorite performer) song is on the radio.

Janine truly loves her job and everyone she works with, and it shows. She has an endless supply of energy and smiles. She recently moved to Suffolk. She and her husband Dave have three beautiful daughters and two Yorkies. She is happiest when surrounded by family. Janine loves spending time outdoors. She isn’t afraid of the hard work it takes to make a beautiful garden. She delights in creating a magnificent setting for entertaining. Her parties put Martha Stewart to shame. She enjoys baking and is very handy with a glue gun.


Teri has been a member of the Smile Solutions team for over twenty years with more than thirty years of administrative experience. Her official title is Office Manager, but everyone knows she is much more than that. Teri takes pride in personally knowing her patients and is supportive when it comes to their dental needs. Her extensive knowledge of dental insurance enables her to assist patients with maximizing their benefits.

When Teri first joined the staff of Smile Solutions, she was unhappy with her smile. Now she will tell you she was like “Humpty Dumpty” and unlike the fairytale, Dr. Berg put her back together again. She knows firsthand what it means to be a patient and she never forgets how it feels to be in the treatment chair. Teri believes everyone should be able to eat comfortably and smile without pain.

Teri knows a lot about the healing power of laughter. She has a smile to share with everyone she greets. Most people believe that dentistry and laughter don’t go hand in hand, but Teri knows laughter is what makes Smile Solutions unique.

Teri has been married to her husband Joe for over thirty years. Their son, Joseph will soon be attending college. Aside from a ten year hiatus to California, Teri has lived in the area her whole life. Teri says it is a special privilege to live in and be part of her community. It’s not uncommon to see her when shopping locally or at neighborhood events. Teri loves spending time with her family and any activity at or near the ocean. She tries to be active by taking cross training classes and riding her bike whenever possible. She loves animals and can often be seen stopping to say hello to any pet she meets.
