Meet Dr. Mari N. Berry
“My profession allows me to help people achieve overall health by starting with the passageway to their body. I love assisting each of my patients in developing a healthy mouth and smile, along with optimal overall wellness.
“I’m most passionate about cosmetic dentistry and helping people be proud of their smile. I had very crooked teeth as a kid, and if it wasn’t for the assistance of my dentist and orthodontist, I would not be who I am today. Once I was comfortable with my smile, my self-esteem increased and the real ‘me’ started to shine. Because I was no longer embarrassed to talk with people, I didn’t let opportunities pass by. I want to do the same for my patients. Everyone should be proud to smile.
“I love working with my patients. The bonds we form, the stories they share, and learning from them is rewarding. I enjoy educating patients about their care options, and helping them achieve something they may have thought wasn’t possible. It’s a great feeling to see a person take care of their teeth because they’re proud of all the work they put into making them healthy: not just because I ‘fixed’ them, but because of the work we did together.” — Dr. Mari N. Berry
