About Us

About Us



Since 1995, Terry and Beth Slocum have been serving the dental needs of Cartersville. You can be certain that the familiar faces of our staff will greet you at each visit. We want to earn your trust and for you to have a comfortable and expedient visit so that you choose us for your family dental home. Patients often say that the reason they choose us is because the voice they hear over the phone is friendly and knowledgable. It is a simple business mantra- treat people with respect, stand behind your services, be gentle, and your patients will return and tell their friends. We are happy to see new patients for long term care or for dental emergencies. Our office is grateful to Cartersville for it’s support and we hope to enjoy many more years serving you.

We practice minimally invasive dentistry. This philosophy is driven by the desire to only perform as much dentistry is as needed, to have healthy teeth, gums and a bright smile. Our office has been paperless or all-digital since 2000. What this means for you, is safely stored records, efficient appointments, and low dose radiation from pictures taken of your teeth and jaws. Another reason to consider us is that we do not refer patients to specialist very often. We place implants for dentures or single tooth placement, take out wisdom teeth, perform molar root canal therapy, and see children for restorative needs–One place for all of your dentistry.

You will find valuable information on this website about dental problems, diagnoses, and treatments. We believe informed patients are better prepared to make decisions about their oral health needs and over-all well being. We encourage you to review this information to help you understand any concerns you may have.

Tammy Smith

Dental Hygienist

My name Is Tammy Smith. I am a dental hygienist and I have been a member of Terry and Beths team for 19 years now. Over these 19 years I have developed great friendships with every member of our team and I have been blessed to work with my best friend since 10th grade, Amy Toole; our 20 year veteran assistant. I have also built great relationships with my patients many of which have been coming to see me for the 19 years I have been here. I enjoy learning about my patients and watching their families grow. I live in Cave Spring Ga with my husband of 19 years and our 16 year old daughter. I enjoy running and most any activity outside. Last year I ran my first marathon which was a very humbling experience. I do have one tip to leave you with…When it comes to your teeth – floss the ones you want to keep 🙂

I’m Mylinda, and I’ve been working with Dr. Terry and Dr. Beth at Todays’s dentistry for 14 years. The staff here is a close knit team and we’ve become lifelong friends. The aspect of my job I enjoy most is interacting with patients. It’s not just about teeth, it’s about meeting needs and developing relationships within the community. I find I have at least one point of common interest with everyone I meet. My main interests are gardening and travel with my husband and son.
