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.
Dr. Terza was born in Saint Petersburg, Florida and grew up in Safety Harbor, Florida. Dentistry is something that she shares in common with her father. She believes it has been a privilege to compare cases and learn from each other. Dr. Terza met her husband Matthew when she was in dental school. They were married in 2017 at St. Augustine Catholic Church and became parents to beautiful baby Piper in 2018. Dr. Terza loves to spend time with her family outdoors and is enjoying the whirlwind that is parenthood.
