East Valley Dentist

Theresa M. Collins, DMD

Mesa Dentist

Dr. Collins was born and raised in Kingman, Arizona. She has always been a competitive athlete and focused especially on swimming. Dr. Collins swam the butterfly stroke on the University of Northern Colorado team from Greeley, Colorado. After she ended her college swimming career, she began participating in triathlons. Her proudest and most recent accomplishment is completing the Arizona Ironman in 2015 in Tempe. She is now the Mesa dentist of choice, working with patients at East Valley Dental.

In addition to triathlons, Dr. Collins loves to hike, camp, cook, exercise, and travel.

One of her life goals is to touch every continent: Asia and Antarctica are the remaining two! Dr. Collins has a dog named Riggs who is spoiled rotten, and she takes pride in making an amazing homemade pie-crust.

Dr. Collins graduated from Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon, in 2012. It was a dream come true, as she has wanted to be a dentist since she was eight years old.

"I love helping people improve their oral health and confidence. My goal is to ensure a pain-free environment and to treat my patients how I would treat my own family."
