Theresa Jamison 

Welcome to our office!  My name is Theresa and I am the Insurance/Financial Coordinator.  I feel very fortunate to have been brought on board to work with this great team!  I've been here since April 2013 so I'm the "new" girl, but have been in the dental field since 1989.  Dentistry is an exciting healthcare field, one I'm very passionate about and Dr. Valerie is at the top.  I've worked with several dentisits along the way and none can compare with her skills or level of compassion she has for her patients.  Our team is also highly skilled and I feel lucky to be a part of it and hope you will too!  I work closely with our patient's to make sure their dental needs and expectations are met from maximizing dental insurance benefits to scheduling appointments that fit in with today's busy lifestyles. 

I am one of those "Texans" that was born in another state but got here as fast as she could!  I am married to my best friend, Jett, and have two adult children.  My son, Tom, is married to Megan and has given me my first granddaughter, Ellie, who is the most precious child in the the world!  My daughter, Amanda, is a UNT graduate and both of them live in the area so I get to visit with them a lot.  I love to read, go to the movies and I travel as much as I can.  When you call the office I may be the one that answers the phone and I am looking forward to speaking with you.
