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 the 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 life style including the 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 twenty six 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.
Covering this area of responsibility we have placed one of the very best, Cathy Filby. Retained in 2014 for her professional talent and sound unwavering personality, she offers a quiet and reserved approach to our overall staff. Cathy earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry. She moved to the Parker area in 2003. Both of her children, a daughter and son, reside in the Denver area. She states that the Little Parker Dental Center feels like a home away from home. “The office just feels warm and cozy if you know what I mean. We even have scented candles and original quilts hanging on the walls that were made especially by Dr. Terri’s mother. It’s just a great place to work and a great place to function like a professional.” Cathy keeps her skills up-to-date by attending numerous continuing educational classes each year.
Our Front Desk Specialist
An integral part of the Little Parker Dental Center is the front desk specialist. We were diligent in our efforts to fulfill and find just the right person to occupy this important position. Without doubt, our choice was Mrs. Parker. Not only is she qualified for the required position but she also has a great personality. “Just call me Mona” was our first indication that we had the right person. A Colorado native, she attended Regis University where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. We are lucky to find someone of this stature. She has proven to be very rewarding for the Little Parker Dental Center.
Mona lives with her husband and two wonderful children, a boy and girl, in Parker since 2010. She joined our office in 2013 and has taken the office to new heights. Her family leads an active life style, exploring Colorado and enjoying the Parker Community.
