Teresa Salino-Hugg, DDS, MS

I became an orthodontist 25 years ago so I could make a difference in people’s lives. A beautiful smile does so much to make a person feel good about themselves, their appearance, and their health. In some cases, a new smile is truly life-changing.

I love to see my adolescent and teen patients grow and evolve into young adults, knowing I have played a part in helping them achieve a beautiful smile and improved self-confidence. I also get great satisfaction by helping my adult patients achieve the beautiful smile they have always dreamed of. It is such a pleasure to meet so many wonderful patients, getting to know them over time and helping them to achieve their personal best. I can't think of any job I would rather do.

Education and Continuing Education

I am continuously taking continuing education courses in order to keep my practice state-of-the-art. It is important to me that my patients receive the most efficient, up-to-date, and comfortable care possible. Committed to lifelong learning, I have an inquisitive mind and like to try new treatment options. I take lots of training in aesthetics, self-ligating brackets, Invisalign®, treatment mechanics, dentofacial orthopedics, orthognathic surgery, and practice management.

Outside the Office

A native of New York, I have lived in Burlington, Iowa, for the past 26 years. My husband, Martin, and I have two children, Anna who is a graduate student, and Michael who is studying electrical engineering. Our family would not be complete without our two dogs, Sully and Dexter, our two cats, Colby and Speedy, and a Senegal parrot named Bijou. My time outside the office is spent with my family, cooking, camping, traveling, practicing yoga, and knitting.

I grew up in Richmond, Virgina.  After high school, I lived overseas in Peru for 2 years where I completed a humanitarian mission and became fluent in Spanish.  I later received a B.S. in Biology from Brigham Young University where I met my lovely wife, Silvia (who was raised in Peru and Japan).  I accepted a full ride scholarship from the Navy to attend dental school at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.  Immediately following dental school, I completed a Navy sponsored residency program in Advanced Education in General Dentistry.  After serving honorably in the Navy for 7 years I decided to pursue specialization in orthodontics at Jacksonville University in Florida.   I am a diplomat of the American Board of Orthodontics and have been practicing dentistry since 2009.  I am proud to be an Eagle Scout, veteran, orthodontist, father of three and husband.  My hobbies include singing, gardening, camping and fishing.
