Dr. Terence McLaughlin

Dr. Terence McLaughlin


A native of Minnesota, Dr. McLaughlin received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree in 1982 from the University of Minnesota. He has practiced in the Phoenix area for over thirty years. His philosophy of treatment is centered around the belief that his patients should be treated as he would take care of his own family. The greatest compliment to Dr. McLaughlin is when a patient refers a family member, friend or co-worker to our office.
