WATERLOO — This Seneca County community’s newest dentist says she and her family are happy in the Finger Lakes and hope to be here a long time.
Dr. Erin McTernan took over the All Smiles Family Dentistry practice at 44 W. Main St. in March. She changed the name to All Smiles of the Finger Lakes and picked up many of the previous dentist’s patients.
Born in the Bronx, McTernan knew she was headed for a career in the health care field. She excelled in science and biology in high school; after further study and personal observation of a physician, optometrist and dentist, she chose dentistry.
“I was no stranger to dental work,” she said. “I had a lot of tooth issues as a child and I was lucky to have had a good dentist and good experiences.”
She attended Manhattan College and earned an undergraduate degree in biology before going to Tufts University Dental School in Boston.
In Boston, she worked part time at an Empire Vision optometry office. That’s where she met optometrist Dr. Christopher Main, a Geneva native. They dated, got engaged and married in 2008. They moved to Providence, R.I., where she did some additional dental training while her husband worked for Empire Vision.
They also began a family, which today consists of children ages 1, 4 and 6. They moved to Poughkeepsie to get closer to her husband’s hometown of Geneva, staying there three years.
