Get to Know Teresa Salem, DMD

Dr. Salem has been practicing dentistry since 1996, and she possesses the knowledge and skill that only an experienced dentist can provide. For over 15 years, she has worked hard to earn the trust of hundreds of men, women, and families through her dedicated approach.

“I love being a dentist because I truly love people. I enjoy meeting them and listening to their stories. Just interacting with people is rewarding and fulfilling. What I truly enjoy most is the ability to make a difference in people’s lives — a positive difference that sometimes is truly profound and very rewarding. Lucky for me, this reward is also my purpose as a dental caregiver: to ensure people have healthy, attractive, and confident smiles that last. As the owner of Pearl Dental Associates, I am more enthusiastic than ever in my pursuit of excellent workmanship and top-quality care. And people are the reason.

I know the importance of providing you with excellent care and forming a relationship that’s founded on understanding and trust. What I do for you is precisely what I would do for my family member. I am committed to making your dental treatment more pleasant than you ever thought possible. This means caring about you, interacting with you honestly and openly, making your care enjoyable, and always striving to provide excellent results.”

Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Salem is actually the first person in her family to attend college, and she quickly learned during her pre-med years that she had a drive for helping patients and catering treatment to the individual. Everyone deserves to have healthy teeth and the dedicated, compassionate education it takes to reach that point. After being a stay-at-home mom for several years and raising five children, she returned to school to complete her advanced training and additionally discovered that she was exceptionally passionate about specialty dentistry after completing endodontic and implant courses, as well as the latest developments in dental technology. Years later, she’s never looked back!
