Dr. Terri Gillespie
Dr. Gillespie is a fourth generation native of Colorado. She was born in Denver and raised in the Franktown area. Her early education was attained at Douglas County High School in Castle Rock. She then studied at the University of Colorado for her undergraduate degree and at the University of Colorado Health Science Center, School of Dentistry where she received her D.D.S.
Opening her first office in 1989, in Parker, she was eager to get started providing a special down-home, one on one type of quality office. She did just that and with her steadfast efforts over the years has proven to be one of the areas very best. Through hard work and devotion to her patients, she has built one of the most respected and noted dental offices in Colorado. Her overall concern has always been to maintain a reasonably sized office with quality services to her patients.
Growing up in Douglas County was a special time, a time that formed great memories of Colorado outdoors and her active youth involvement. Involvement in just about every conceivable aspect or project you could imagine. Early years were spent riding horses, being part of the Parker Trail Riders, riding club. Many, many hours spent preparing for horse shows, riding events and her active lifestyle including every day running of some five miles. During this time frame, each day proved to be a large part of developing her love of the great outdoors. Today she continues her efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle by playing tennis, swimming, and gardening.
It should be noted that over the last thirty years in dentistry, Dr. Gillespie has had the pleasure of watching many of her young patients grow into adults with fantastic beautiful teeth, proving that a Sound Patient Dental Plan is a good thing.
