About

Bio

<strong>BS, Biology and Natural Science: </strong>Muhlenberg College, Allentown, PA <strong>DMD: </strong>Temple University School of Dentistry <strong>Endodontic Residency: </strong>Temple University School of Dentistry <strong>Fellow: </strong>International College of Dentists, American College of Dentists <strong>Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Endodontics: </strong>Temple University School of Dentistry <strong>Hospital Privileges: </strong>Phoenixville Hospital (First area endodontist with hospital privileges, so patients have sedation options) <strong>Member: </strong>American Dental Association, American Association of Endodontists, American Association of Dental Editors, Pennsylvania Dental Association, Valley Forge Dental Association; President, Temple University Graduate Endodontic Alumni Association, American Dental Educators Association <strong>Editor: </strong><em>Journal of the Pennsylvania Dental Association</em> <em>“Throughout my career I’ve made it a priority to keep abreast of advances in technology. Any technique or equipment that can make endodontics more effective, longer-lasting or more comfortable allows me to offer patients a higher standard of care. After all, helping people is why I became an endodontist in the first place. In the end, my favorite thing is to hear my patients say ‘Everything I’ve heard about root canals is a lie.’”</em> Dr. Terry lives in Wayne, PA, with his wife, Susan; his daughter, Caroline; his son, Henry; and his golden retriever, Scout. When he’s not working, he enjoys woodworking and home renovation, as well as backpacking, horseback riding and bicycling. Originally from Los Angeles, Dr. Terry says he loves the open area of Western Montgomery County. Dr. Terry has a passion for mountain climbing. He has summited big mountains like Kilimanjaro, Elbrus, Mt. Blanc, Grand Paradiso, and Aconcagua to name a few. He continues to teach one day a week at Temple University’s School of Dentistry. He is a clinical associate professor with the Department of Endodontics.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
