Meet Dr. Twyla Roberts, DMD
I am grateful to be able to do something for a living that makes people healthier and smile brighter. I love seeing our established patients, meeting new patients, and helping them love their smile! Working with all of the different patients we serve makes each day something to look forward to. I love hearing about what has been going on in their lives and those of their families.
One of the most rewarding things I have the opportunity to do is to help patients with dental anxieties overcome their fears so they can get the treatment they have previously put off or ignored. I am honest with them, listen to their concerns and help them prioritize their dental needs to get them back on track. You can see a change begin to occur right away and they start to look forward to seeing us as much as we look forward to seeing them.
I am lucky to work with such a positive and upbeat staff! All of my team members are dedicated, skilled and compassionate, while providing the highest standard of dental care. Our patients look forward to coming to our office for their appointments simply because they know that we strive to make dental treatment relaxing and fun.
I hope we have the opportunity to care for your smile!

Meet Dr. Staphanni K. Terza, DMD
Hello! I feel so blessed to have found a vocation that encompasses both the priorities that I hold and the gifts that I have been given. Some of these include creativity, education, service, empathy, and health. General dentistry isn’t as much a job but more my life’s passion! I believe that I am here to serve and that I’m meant to do that through providing oral health care to our community. It is very important to me that our patients feel welcome, comfortable, and cared for. I treat each patient as a unique individual and will go above and beyond to find the most appropriate treatment for them.
Dr. Terza is a double Gator! She graduated from the University of Florida with her bachelors in Biology and then again from the University of Florida College of Dentistry with her dental degree. Following dental school, Dr. Terza completed a General Practice Residency in Asheville, NC where she trained in a hospital setting. She is very happy to be back in the Gainesville area. Dr. Terza also spends part of her time teaching in the dental clinics at the University of Florida.
