Dr. Terry Ferrell & Alisha Ferrell

Dr. Terry Ferrell and his wife, Alisha, met while attending Bountiful High School. Their first date didn’t happen, however, until after Dr. Ferrell served an LDS mission in New Zealand and Alisha served in South Africa. After getting married, Dr. Ferrell and Alisha attended BYU full-time, and both worked part-time at the Missionary Training Center. Following graduation at BYU, they moved to Omaha, Nebraska, where Dr. Ferrell attended Creighton Dental School. Their second son was born there, and they named him Crayton! For the last 25 years, much of Dr. Ferrell and Alisha’s time and energy have been spent raising three amazing sons and five wonderful daughters. They both love spending time with family, traveling and serving others.

Dr. Ferrell is the owner of Center Creek Dental and the Director of Assist to Succeed Lehi. He is an adjunct faculty member of the University of Utah dental residency program and a Utah Dental Association board member.
