Dr. Terri Alani has created her successful Houston practice one smile at a time. She graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor of science degree and the University of Texas-Houston with a doctorate of dental surgery. "A beautiful smile speaks when you don't" is Dr. Alani's motto. Her priority on patient care has led to a multitude of referrals.

Cosmetic dentistry is Dr. Alani's focus, but her office incorporates all phases of general dentistry — from teeth cleaning to smile makeovers.
