TERRY CROSS

Terry Cross
Hygienist

I am blessed to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Cotant and his staff. I appreciate working with a dental group that has a caring attitude towards their patients, and has a commitment to quality dentistry. I came to Buffalo Wyoming from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. However, I primarily grew up and was raised in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan.  I attended the University of Detroit Mercy, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene in 1980. I married my husband Wayne the same year that I received my certificate in Dental Hygiene in 1979. 

The early part of my dental hygiene career involved working in several general practices, and one periodontal specialty office in the Detroit suburb area. I spent time studying nutrition and have had fun volunteering at elementary schools teaching dental health.  My dental hygiene career allowed me to work part time while still maintaining my role as wife and mother.

Our greatest joy in life has been our little family! I have learned the most about God, life, and priorities through my desire to best teach our two children. As we wanted a healthy and simple environment to live, we moved to the Keweenaw Peninsula in Upper Michigan surrounded by Lake Superior.  For the 17 years that my husband and I spent in the U. P. of Michigan, I worked full time in a general dental practice.  When not working, I enjoy spending time with family, church fellowship, reading, photography, hiking, and snow shoeing. 

My children are grown adults now. Our son Todd and his wife Danielle currently live and work in Colorado. Our daughter Meghan and her husband Wade live in Gillette, Wyoming and they have blessed us with our first grandson. 

I am enjoying exploring the outdoors of Buffalo with all the surrounding nature and history. I am also thankful to be a part of the Cotant Family Dental team in promoting healthy smiles and serving the community with their dental health needs. A big plus is being just a short drive away from my family and their family of friends.
