Beyond her plastic and reconstructive surgery training, Dr. Teotia subspecialized in pediatric craniofacial surgery and completed a National Institute of Health basic science research fellowship.

Dallas Plastic Surgeons

Dr. Stephanie Beidler Teotia has won numerous awards and has published and presented many scientific articles. Upon completion of her training, she was made an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of North Carolina. She has also been appointed as a Clinical Assistant Professor at both UT-Southwestern Medical Center and Texas Tech Health Sciences Center School of Medicine, Permian Basin Campus. Prior to attending medical school, Dr. Teotia was a middle school science teacher. Teaching residents and medical students is a part of her professional commitment to the field of plastic surgery.

Dr. Teotia lives in the Dallas area with her husband, Dr. Sumeet Teotia, and her two children. She grew up in the Midwest, but she elected to move to Texas to be close to her maternal family. In her sparse spare time, she enjoys being a soccer mom, running, enjoying local cultural events and traveling.

Philosophies

Why I Got Into Plastic Surgery:

I used to believe that one had to save lives in order to make a real impact in medicine. Through my own life experience, I realized that helping improve patients' quality of life can be just as rewarding. We work on our home, car, and relationships. We should feel just as comfortable working on ourselves.

What is your favorite way to start the day?

My husband starts the day by making me laugh. I enjoy drinking a cup of coffee while I walk my children to school. I am fortunate to spend the rest of the day working with my patients. I am blessed, as my patients often feel like good friends.

How do you learn?

I am a data collector. I will ask many questions and read articles before making a final decision. I have no issue reaching out to people who are considered experts in specific topics. Finally, I learn best by doing.

Your quote to live by:

Well-behaved women seldom make history.

What is on your must-read list:

I enjoy reading female, fiction writers and Hemingway.

How do you define success?

Success is knowing that your family is secure, your patients are happy, and that each day has purpose.
