About Us

Teresa Salem, D.M.D.

“I love being a dentist because I truly love people. I enjoy meeting them and listening to their stories. Just interacting with people is rewarding and fulfilling. What I truly enjoy most is the ability to make a difference in people’s lives — a positive difference that sometimes is truly profound and very rewarding. Lucky for me, this reward is also my purpose as a dental caregiver: to ensure people have healthy, attractive and confident smiles that last. As the new owner of Pearl Dental Associates, I am more enthusiastic than ever in my pursuit of excellent workmanship and top quality care. And people are the reason.

I know the importance of providing you with excellent care. From knowledge and skill to heartfelt compassion and a relationship founded on understanding and trust.  What I do for you is precisely what I would do for my family member.  I am committed to making your dental treatment more pleasant than you ever thought possible. This means caring about you, interacting with you honestly and openly, making your care enjoyable and always striving to provide the highest-quality results.”

Practicing dentistry since 1996, Dr. Teresa Salem possesses the knowledge and skill that only an experienced dentist can provide. Also, Dr. Salem has always vigorously pursued advanced training in many different aspects of dentistry. For these reasons, and because she hires only well-trained, highly capable people, Dr. Salem today provides the top-quality, comprehensive dental care you and your family deserve.

Practicing right here on the South Shore for 16 years, Dr. Salem has earned the trust of hundreds of men, women and families. In fact, the vast majority of our new patients were referred by people who have experienced her unique brand of capable, caring and down-to-earth dentistry. We enjoy that our patients are longtime friends and supporters who recommend — and know they can always count on — our quality dentistry and the utmost in gentle, personalized care.
