What I love about dentistry: I love to meet all the families and children. I love the new technology in dentistry that allows us to offer a wider range of services to our patients. It makes me feel good when someone has a problem or need and we can easily take care of it and make a positive difference in their lives.
Background: I grew up in Eastern NC in the small town of Aurora which is in Beaufort County. I have two brothers (one older and one younger) and everyone works in the family business back at home. Growing up in a small town our parents kept us very busy either working, playing sports or scouting. My brothers and I all played baseball and football. Baseball was our passion in sports and we played in various leagues most of the year. Both of my brothers graduated from East Carolina University with degrees in Industrial Distribution and Logistics. We all also participated in scouts where I earned the rank of Eagle Scout by the age of 13. Scouting was one of the best experiences of my life and taught me values that I hold dear to this day.
Jenny Anna Turek, D.D.S. (Dr. T)

Background: Although I was born in Bowling Green, Kentucky, my family and I moved to sunny California when I was very young. My father was an engineer for IBM so I grew up in the Silicon Valley area. I have always loved the beach and have tried my best to be as close as possible to the sand and the waves. I began to take interest in Dentistry while completing my undergraduate work in Santa Barbara, California. I worked throughout college as a Dental Assistant and loved the dental field so much that I decided to pursue a career in Dentistry. I received my doctorate in San Francisco, and continued my professional training in North Miami Beach. After my residency I joined the NC Dept. of Health and Human Services to serve in the rural areas of North Carolina where dental care is difficult to find. I spent over seven years working in clinics providing care to the underserved. It was a very rewarding experience and I have continued to volunteer to help those in need.
What I love about dentistry: Making people smile! I believe that a visit to the dentist should be a positive, stress-free experience. We treat all patients with respect, compassion and patience. At the end of the day I want all of my patients to be pain-free and proud of their beautiful smile!
