Teresa Bushnell, DT


Teresa comes from sunny Tucson, Arizona.  She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona in 1997 in math education.  She was a high school math teacher for a number of years until she decided to pursue a career in dentistry.  An oral surgeon recommended the dental therapy profession to her, and she moved her family to beautiful and snowy Minnesota.   She successfully completed her education and training to become an Advanced Dental therapist.  She has been licensed since 2013 and has practiced in the public health sector.   Residing in northern Minnesota since 2014, her family has grown to love it here.  With four children and hosting exchange students, spare time is a rare luxury!  She enjoys being with family, attending school and sporting events, playing the piano, and volunteering at church.
