Cerise Pierce
Registered Dental Hygienist

A native of western Colorado, Cerise discovered her love for dentistry while working as a periodontal surgical assistant for 6 years. Her husband's unexpected job transfer presented an opportunity to leave the mountains, and her beloved Denver Broncos, for southwest Florida. She graduated from the dental hygiene program at Florida SouthWestern State College and has enjoyed her employment with Dr. Teodoro since 2011. Her special touch is to provide patients with personal attention and professional excellence, helping patients achieve a lifestyle that promotes health and prevents disease.

Outside of work, Cerise spends time with her family - her husband and their puggle, Jaxon. She enjoys taking long walks with Jaxon, reading mystery novels and hosting family and friends who come to visit.
