Rowlett Pediatric Dentist
Get to Know Dr. Tera Pollock
Dr. Pollock is our in-office pediatric dentist, and she even has her own website at Rowlett Dental Kids! After practicing in Southfield, Michigan and Fort Myers, Florida in her earlier years, she found herself drawn to Texas (despite missing the Florida sunshine) and has now been helping children of all ages smile brighter in the Lone Star State for many years now. To learn more about her background, keep reading below:
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Pollock originally hails from Batesville, Arkansas. She pursued her undergraduate degree at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville before moving onto Baylor College of Dentistry and completing her Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1993. She then underwent a post-doctoral General Practice Residency at Detroit Receiving Hospital/University of Detroit Mercy. This residency included regular rotations through the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, where she received extensive training in hospital training and sedation.
Dr. Pollock is also a long-standing member of the Rockwall County Dental Society, where she’s served as the dental secretary since 2012.
What Do You Like Most About Being a Pediatric Dentist?
There’s so much to love about such a fun job! Dr. Pollock really enjoys helping children smile and giggle in the treatment chair for sure. As a mother of three, she also loves treating older children – the teenagers and “tweens” – and providing a positive influence during those tough years in middle school and high school. Plus, by working alongside the talented doctors at Rowlett Dental Associates, she looks forward to making the transition from pediatric dentistry to adult care a very seamless experience!
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Pollock has been married to her husband Dr. Kevin Pollock for many years now. He works as an oral surgeon in Rockwall. They have three children together named Christian, Meredith, and Lane. When she isn’t busy at work, her hobbies include cooking, entertaining, traveling, gardening, and (of course) loudly cheering on the Texas Rangers!
