Teré switched gears in 1998 after a 12-year career in banking and began working in general dentistry as a scheduling and insurance coordinator at an office that was 35 minutes from her home. As her kids grew older, Teré knew she needed to be closer to home. We got lucky, and Teré joined Trio Orthodontics in 2006 and is now our insurance coordinator. As a mom with children in treatment with Dr. Underwood, Teré saw first-hand the professional teamwork and fun, fast-paced environment. She knew it was where she wanted to be. Growing up in the very small town of North Canton, Ohio, Teré graduated from North Canton Hoover High School and attended Stark Technical College. Tere' met the love of her life, Steve and married in 1988. They moved to the Northwest Columbus area where they raised three sons and now have 2 grandsons. Teré enjoys vacations on the beach, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
