Terri Martin


Dental Assistant
I was born in Louisiana, but have been in the area since third grade. My husband and I have lived here for 27 years, which is how long I have been in the dental field. We have two wonderful daughters and one son. We enjoy spending time with them and our grandchildren. You can also find us in the woods during hunting season.

Dr. Jerry


Dental Hygienist
I was born and raised in Okmulgee. I have been working for Dr. Ruleford since she started practicing here. I am so happy to be serving my home town community and doing something that I love and feel so passionately about. I love helping our patients improve their oral health and enjoy making a personal connection. I was a dental assistant prior to attending dental hygiene school. I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor’s of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2008. I have a strong Christian faith. I am a proud member of the US Army Reserves for 15 years now. I am married to my best friend and we have two amazing daughters. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family, cooking and baking, volunteering, learning to quilt, and teaching a fitness class at our local YMCA.

Gwen Newton

I graduated fro the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in 1986 with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. I started working in the office and part time in a periodontal practice in Tulsa. After thirty years in the dental profession, I still enjoy dentistry and providing care for all the patients.


I was raised in this community my whole entire life and I am a proud Morris Eagle. I went to Dental Assisting School in 2010’, then shortly after accepted an opportunity in the Pharmacy world until I recently transitioned back into the Dental Field. I have two children, Brison and Sunny, who are my pride and joy. We love cars and spend most of our time with family at car shows, swap meets, or the drag strip.
