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 attends college at SUNY Maritime. 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 her dog Jaxx for long walks everyday. She loves animals and can often be seen stopping to say hello to any pet she meets.
