Our Unique Approach

Dr. Teresa Dawahare Lyon 

At one time the doctor-patient relationship was a valuable bond of trust that could be relied upon. Unfortunately in today’s world, especially Healthcare, there is little to no time designated for building these relationships. You are treated more like a number than a person. Our office believes this is not the kind of care that gets people on a road to health. In fact, it often does the opposite. For this reason, we choose to practice another way for the good and well-being of the people we serve. We wish to serve you totally and completely through taking the time to get to know you, your desires, and creating a partnership. This is why we only schedule one person at a time. It is our passion to coach and guide you toward a path of health, to where you need little to no dental work throughout your life.


Dr. Teresa Dawahare Lyon

Dr. Teresa Dawahare Lyon received her Doctorate in Dental Medicine from the University of Kentucky in 1989 and continued her education with a two year General Practice Residency at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Lexington, KY.


Since graduating from her residency program in 1989, Dr. Dawahare Lyon has continued to fine-tune her dental education in the areas of cosmetic dental smile design, restorative dentistry, sleep apnea, digital dentistry, as well as facial esthetic using Botox, dermal fillers, and PDO solid threads to bring all the facial and dental components together creating a more youthful smile as well as improved dental function.


I love my patients and I have a tremendous amount of responsibility in caring for them. It is my aspiration to become a positive source of influence for my patients, staff,  family, profession, and the community I live in. -Dr. Dawahare Lyon
