About Us

  • Dr. Terese Walters

    Dr. Walters

    Dr. Terese Walters (Formerly Dr. Terese Patterson) received a BS in Biological Sciences from Clemson University in 1998. After graduation, she decided to pursue experience in biological research, working in a research lab at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. This led her to a career path in dentistry. Dr. Walters graduated from MUSC's College of Dental Medicine in 2004 with her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) and decided to serve her country by joining the United States Air Force. Through the Air Force, she had the privilege of completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency in California and finishing out her Air Force career in Minot, North Dakota. This residency further expanded her knowledge of dentistry and dental materials, including the latest in dental technologies and procedures. She settled in the Triangle area of North Carolina in 2007 and enjoys all that this area has to offer. She loves spending time with her husband, Mark, and her rescue dog. Dr. Walters also enjoys being outdoors, bike riding, gardening, cooking and cheering on the Clemson Tigers.
