Tom Terronez

Chief Executive Officer

Tom Terronez is a hands-on leader in the dental technology industry, committed to helping practices reach their efficiency and IT security potential. Since founding two tech companies in the early 2000’s (Medix Dental and Terrostar Interactive Media), he has become a nationally respected and increasingly sought-after expert in his field. His mission to help practices mitigate risk, protect patients, and maximize overall success has allowed dentists all over the country to embrace a new type of technology partner.

Tom’s philosophy is best likened to Benjamin Franklin’s sentiment, “An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.” Accordingly, he enjoys regularly educating prominent dental universities, associations, and societies about proactively combating the critical cybersecurity threats that face our time. His ability to explain these complex topics in an accessible and inclusive fashion has allowed him to connect with both novice and expert audiences alike. Still, Tom’s time in the classroom is not always spent leading; he has attended executive education programs at both Stanford and Dartmouth College.

Outside of work, Tom and his wife, Brooke, enjoy traveling and value strong civic engagement. They volunteer and serve on multiple not-for-profit boards, and regularly sponsor a wide variety of goodwill efforts within their community.

Order and read Tom’s latest book contribution in the Wiley publication, Dental Practice Transition: A Practice Guide to Management.

Daniel Terronez

Business Operations Associate

Dan is known for being goofy, loyal, and maybe a little bit wild. His favorite foods are Casey’s breakfast pizza (“hands down”), carne asada tacos (“pretty dope”), and anything with ice cream on top. He is happiest when on a wrestling mat or being smothered by a bunch of pug puppies.

Dan admires technology because it parallels life – constantly changing and evolving. His favorite part about working at Medix is the environment. Everyone is so energetic and friendly. To him, this makes the days in the office go by quickly.

Nicknames I have are . . .

Jackelyn Watson

IT Treatment Coordinator

Jackelyn is outgoing, organized, and known for being a team player. She’s always happy to help others, and if you’re looking for an organization hack, she’s your go-to gal. Jackelyn is a HUGE baseball fan, and her favorite team is the Atlanta Braves although she enjoys her son’s little league just as much!

The weirdest job I've ever had was...

I was a telemarketer for a whole summer when I was 15 years old.

The best part of my job is...

Working with our partners. I love people - getting to know them, learning about them and helping them.

If I won the lottery, I would...

Buy an RV and travel the world. There is so much to see and most people only get to see a tiny piece of the world.

Dessert? Yes, please! My fav is...

Jello no-bake cheesecake. Without the crust...so pudding but so much better!

I am happiest when...

Life is too short to be anything but happy, but I would say I am happiest when I am with my family and friends. Being productive also makes me super happy!

Tre-Lin Weise

Onboarding Coordinator

One thing we know is that Tre-Lin is very serious about her cereal. Her top three favs are Cheerios, Rice Krispies, and Grape Nuts! Don’t worry, if you don’t agree with her cereal choices you may have more in common with her pies of choice – her favorites are apple and chocolate.

Tre-Lin says others would describe her as weird (in a good way), dorky, and happy. 🙂 We think she fits nicely into the Medix family!

A little-known face about me is . . .

I have a twin sister and there have been times where we meet up and we end up wearing the same or very similar attire. We call it "Twinning"

I love technology because . . .

It's constantly changing and improving and I find the entirety of it fascinating.

If I won the lottery, I would . . .

Invest some into Crypto, pay off debt, buy a house, and put the rest into a high-interest account and live off of the interest. I live a pretty frugal lifestyle so it's doable. :)

My dinner of choice is . . .

It's a tie between Italian or Asian Cuisine.
