Teresa Morigeau, Office Manager
I enjoy working in the healthcare profession. I have accumulated many years of varied dental and medical experiences that aid me in assisting the patients of Big Sky Dental Clinic with treatment planning and financial aspects of their care. My family, continuing education and growing up on a ranch in Montana are some of the things that I value. Dr. Clave provides gentle and conscientious dental services via a team approach.
My husband, Todd, and I appreciated the area we live in and we have become Polson Pirate fans through the participation of our three children over the years.
I will do my best to make your visit comfortable and affordable with well calculated treatment planning long before your are scheduled for that appointment in the dental chair!
Being a native of Montana, I enjoy many outdoor activities such as golf, hiking, skiing and camping. I have been working in the dental profession since 1997 in western Montana and joined Big Sky Dental Clinic in November of 2005. I thoroughly enjoy working in dentistry, especially with Dr. Clave and his fantastic staff!
