Dr. Teresa Salem's life embraces so many activities and achievements, you'd think her days hold more than 24 hours and her weeks contain more than seven days. She's a single mother of five school-age children, yet takes in foster kids, as well. She runs a pair of dental practices, with her personal focus on surgical implants. She travels to foreign lands where her dental offerings enhance the lives of those she treats. And when she does find a stray hour or two, she might play a bit of summer team tennis out of Black Rock Country Club where she is a member.
