"Throughout my career I’ve made it a priority to keep abreast of advances in technology. Any technique or equipment that can make endodontics more effective, longer-lasting or more comfortable allows me to offer patients a higher standard of care. After all, helping people is why I became an endodontist in the first place. In the end, my favorite thing is to hear my patients say ‘Everything I’ve heard about root canals is a lie."
Dr. Terry lives in Wayne, PA, with his wife, Susan; his daughter, Caroline; his son, Henry; and his golden retriever, Scout. When he’s not working, he enjoys woodworking and home renovation, as well as backpacking, horseback riding and bicycling. Originally from Los Angeles, Dr. Terry says he loves the open area of Western Montgomery County.
He continues to teach one day a week at Temple University’s School of Dentistry. He is a clinical associate professor with the Department of Endodontics. For more information about the graduate program, please visit the Department of Endodontics at Temple University.

DMD: University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA
Endodontic Residency: University of Pennsylvania
"I always knew I wanted to pursue a specialty career in dentistry, and I find it just as rewarding today. I like being in the business of helping people save their teeth. Even though the procedures are similar, every case is different. That’s what keeps it interesting for me nearly 15 years later. I enjoy the advances in materials and instruments that continue to make the care I provide gentler and more effective."
Dr. Silberg is married with 3 children who all love sports. She is a true soccer mom, football mom, baseball mom and lacrosse mom. When she is not working or spending time with her children, she enjoys running, skiing, hiking and working out at the gym.
Kelly Lanning, D.M.D
Endodontic Residency: Albert Einstein Medical Center, Philadelphia
DMD: Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry, Philadelphia
B.S. Biology: Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO
"I really enjoy teaching. During the past several years I had the chance to present table clinic demonstrations at the Chicago Midwinter Dental Meeting, and the American Association of Endodontists Annual Session in 2013 and 2014.
I also feel that it’s important to give back to those less fortunate. I have participated in the ADA annual session Give Kids a Smile program."
A part of the community
Kelly and his wife, Megan, moved to Phoenixville after returning to this area to attend his two-year post doctoral program in Endodontics. “I like the comfort of a smaller town outside of Philadelphia. It just feels right.”
Service to his country
After graduating from Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry in 2008, Kelly entered the United States Navy and completed a one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry Program at the Fisher Naval Health Clinic in Great Lakes, IL. From 2009 until 2012 Kelly was a dental officer at the Marine Corps Air-Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, CA. He provided dental care to 13,000 Marines and Sailors and, as acting Operative Dentistry Department Head, managed 10 other general dentists.
“I am very lucky to have had such great opportunities during my training as an endodontist. At Einstein I learned the proper use of the dental microscope for both non-surgical and surgical endodontic treatment. I also had training in the placement of dental implants. My general practice residency and time spent in the U.S. Navy helped me hone my surgical skills in extractions and knowledge of general dentistry.”
