Meet the Doctors

Dr. Terry Spence

As an orthodontist, I have the opportunity to change lives. Many of my patients come to their first appointment shy or ashamed of their smiles. My job is to create beautiful, healthy smiles they will be proud to show off, and to help them build the confidence to share their smile every day! I love what I do, and am passionate about always giving the best care possible.

Family and Community

Spence family photoI grew up in Cape Girardeau and have lived here my whole life. I am proud to raise my children in such a warm and welcoming community.

My wife Jeri and I have three daughters named Charlie, Kate, and Fiona. In my spare time, I love hiking and playing sports with my wife and kids! I am also active in our community through my membership in the Oral Health Coalition, whose goal is to improve the dental health of children in the area.

Education and Continuing Education

Before becoming an orthodontist, I earned my Bachelor of Science with honors from Southeast Missouri State University. Then I obtained a Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Missouri-Kansas School of Dentistry, where I was voted student of the year by my classmates. My orthodontic specialty training was conducted at the University of Tennessee at Memphis, where I was awarded a Master of Dental Science in 2000.

Since graduation, I have continued my orthodontic studies so I would always stay abreast of the most advanced, proven methods to benefit my patients. My highest priority is to give each patient the best smile possible while keeping treatment time as short as possible. I attend as many continuing education courses and seminars as I can so I can stay on the cutting edge and make sure my patients receive the best treatments that are catered to their needs and goals.

In the Practice

I am inspired by my patients on a daily basis, and always enjoy getting to know them personally. I know that each patient and parent puts complete trust in my abilities, and I take that responsibility very seriously.

I have been practicing since 2000 and have taken every opportunity to improve my skills and expand my knowledge. I love seeing the beautiful and healthy smiles at the end of my patients’ treatments, and I take the time to teach each person how to keep that new smile healthy so it lasts a lifetime.

Of course, a great orthodontic practice doesn’t stop with the doctor. I am incredibly proud of my team and confident in their talent and abilities.


Dr. Jennifer Burzynski

I feel so fortunate to be an orthodontist! I have the privilege to meet and work with many different people, giving each one individualized care to accomplish their smile goals and improve their self-confidence, oral health, and dental function. I love helping create beautiful smiles that my patients are proud of and happy to show off!

Family and Community

I grew up in Cape Girardeau and the surrounding area, and also lived in Kentucky and Ohio for several years. I am so excited to be back in my hometown, with my family and community that are so important to me.

My husband David is from Paducah, Kentucky, and we met in college. We have a dog and a cat, and love doing outdoor hobbies including hiking and kayaking. I also love reading, baking, flowers, and farm animals (alpacas are my favorite!).

Education and Continuing Education

I attended Murray State University, where I received a Bachelor of Science degree. Then I moved to Lexington, Kentucky, where I achieved a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. Finally, I completed my training with an orthodontic residency at Ohio State University and obtained both a certificate and a Master of Science degree in orthodontics.

Following my graduation, I worked at a private practice in Columbus, Ohio for several years before making the move back to Missouri. I stay active in the orthodontic community through membership in dental and orthodontic organizations, and I strive for continual improvement in my orthodontic practice with continuing education courses on a variety of treatment techniques.

In the Practice

I enjoy interacting with my patients and their families personally and getting to know them beyond their orthodontic care. I also value our Innovative Orthodontics team and appreciate that “it takes a village!” I love our family environment, and I am so proud to be part of this excellent team. My goal is to treat every patient with care and individualized planning, to ensure that each one receives the best plan with high quality, scientifically based methods, and to achieve exceptional results that meet our mutual objectives for a healthy and beautiful smile.


Dr. Collin Schlosser

When I was younger, orthodontics gave me two things that I am forever grateful for: a smile that I am still proud of to this day and a love for the profession that has brought me to this point. I cannot wait to give back to my community and hopefully will make the same meaningful impact on our patients' lives, improving their confidence and oral health.

Family and Community

I grew up about two hours north in the small town of Potosi, Missouri. I have been married to my amazing, high school sweetheart Jessica for eight years now. We have a rambunctious daughter Noella and a sweet, but LOUD, baby boy named Rowan. When not in the office, I love spending time with family and going to the lake to ski, wakeboard, and tube. I am sports fanatic and enjoy playing or watching just about any sport there is. One of my wife and I’s favorite activities though, is watching movies at the theater. I mean who doesn’t love movie theater popcorn?!

Education and Continuing Education

I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Missouri in Columbia. I then attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry, where I obtained my Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree and was lucky enough to be able to stay and complete my orthodontic training and complete my Master of Science degree in Oral and Craniofacial Sciences.

Following my orthodontic residency, my wife and I knew that we wanted to return to southeast Missouri to give back to the community that invested so much in me. I was lucky enough to find an incredible opportunity with Dr. Spence and Dr. Jenn at Innovative Orthodontics and could not be luckier to have joined such an amazing and caring practice.

Since graduating, I have continued to participate in the orthodontic community through memberships in dental and orthodontic organizations as well as continuing education courses. Continuing education offers a chance at honing and improving one’s craft, learning from some of the best minds in your field, and I love that it allows me to utilize knowledge gained all around the world to benefit our patients locally. Being active in the community is very important to me as well. This area has given my family and I so much, and I am truly looking forward to being able to pass it on to others through my time, profession, and resources.
