My name is Peggy and I have been a Dental Hygienist for over 35 years. I am originally from Long Island and moved to Fredericksburg 25 years ago with my husband and 2 daughters. I have worked with Dr. Teller for 19 years and will continue at Locust Grove Dental Care with Dr. Hagar and Dr. Teller. I consider our patients my friends and work to have a great rapport with them and help them maintain their teeth for their entire life.
Dr. Hugh Teller received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in 1990.
In 1991, he received a Certificate in Advanced General Dentistry from the University of Maryland at Baltimore School of Dentistry.
In 2010, Dr. Teller completed the Craniofacial Pain Mini-Residency Program through the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain (AACP), a professional dental association dedicated to studying and treating head and facial pain, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, snoring and sleep apnea.
In 2012, Dr. Teller became a Fellow of the AACP. Using non-surgical techniques, Dr. Teller has relieved many patients of TMJ pain, headaches, snoring and sleep apnea. Dr. Teller is an adjunct professor in the Germanna Community College Dental
Dr. Basiony Hagar attended a general practice residency at Berkshire Medical Center in Massachusetts, affiliated with Tufts Dental School in 2007 through 2008. Dr. Hagar received his certification in implant placement in 2010 and has been placing and restoring implants. In 2011, Dr. Hagar was certified as an Invisalign premier provider.
Dr. Hagar prides himself in being a gentle and caring dentist that practices all aspects of cosmetic dentistry with special care for patients with an aversion to dental treatments.
Cara has been our lead assistant for two years, and brought 20 years of experience with her! Cara is passionate about dentistry and loves seeing patients confidence restored after their treatment is completed. She enjoys seeing the excitement and expression on her patients faces. Outside of the office she is a loving wife as well as the busy mom of her 9 year old son. He plays baseball which keeps their family busy! Cara is her son’s biggest fan and loves nothing more than seeing him play. GO NATS!
Kailey came to our office in 2020. After seeing her mother work in the dental field her entire life she decided this was also the field she wanted to pursue.
