Dr. Terri Meinhold

Originally from Arkansas, Terri Meinhold was drawn to a dental career early on, attending a technical school in Texas, where she learned how to make dentures, partials, bridges and crowns. She soon opened her own dental prosthetics laboratory, and not long after that, she realized that her true calling was to be a dentist. She attended the University of Arkansas at Monticello as an undergraduate, and in 1988, she received her doctor of dental surgery degree from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry.

Her mother an Asheville native, and Dr. Meinhold was drawn here as a result of her many visits to the mountains as she grew up. She started her practice in Arden in 1990, and over the course of 21 years, has found success in helping each of her patients have the best smile possible. She also played a role in planning Mission Children's Hospital Toothbus, a mobile dental clinic that provides care for children who might not see a dentist otherwise.

Dr. Meinhold lives in the country in nearby Horse Shoe with her wonderful husband, Bill Meinhold, who owns Euro-Spec Automotive Service Center, and their beautiful daughter, Kelly. In her spare time, she enjoys knitting, gardening, camping and spending time on the lake with her family.

She is a Member of the American Dental Association, the North Carolina Dental Society, the Buncombe County Dental Society and the Carolina Mountain Dental Study Club.
