"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.

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 25 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.
