Dentist in Livonia, MI
Dr. Terri Todaro
Before I graduated from high school I knew I wanted to be a dentist. I enjoyed working with my hands and wanted to help people be healthy. I always noticed a persons smile as their first physical trait and was drawn to a radiant smile. Dentistry seemed like a perfect blend of my interest and talent.
For my undergraduate studies, I attended the University of Michigan for Cellular Molecular Biology. I applied and was accepted into the University of Michigan Dental School, and graduated in 1985.
Since then I have built an extraordinary practice filled with wonderful patients and exceptional staff. I really enjoy interacting with patients and helping them attain what it is they want for their dental health. I particularly enjoy rebuilding a worn smile. I pride myself on getting the most for patients for their dental dollar.
I love spending time with my family. I have 2 children with my husband Dr. Mark Azzopardi DDS, an oral surgeon in Novi, MI. My daughter Lauren is an orthodontist in Boston, and my son Michael attends the University of Michigan in their dentistry program. When I am not spending time with my family, I can be found riding and jumping my horse, Marquis. I’m a life-long Michigander and love the outdoors and change of season.
Dr. Cynthia Todaro
I attended the University of Michigan. I majored in biology with a minor in art, then continued on to dental school there and graduated in 1992. My favorite part about dentistry is being able to please even the pickiest of esthetic patients.
My love of horses takes me horseback riding when I am not in the office but I also like to bike, wakeboard, and play tennis. I recently adopted two high energy rescue dogs, Luna and Cosi, who keep me running.
