Meet our new Doctor, Benton Perry
Dr. Perry grew up on a small farm in Utah. He received an associate’s degree from Snow College after which he attended Utah State University graduating cum laude. Dr. Perry then attended dental school at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale Florida. He loved Florida and thoroughly enjoyed his time in dental school. Dr. Perry loved working with children in dental school and after dental school he attended a pediatric residency program at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. There he received additional training in behavior management techniques and the use of pharmacologic techniques including oral sedation as well as treating patients under general anesthesia. The clinic was located in the hospital and as a result he was able to treat many children with special needs. He also helped teach in the pre-doc pediatric clinics at both University of Pennsylvania dental school and Temple University dental school.
After completing his residency, he worked in both Philadelphia and Idaho before relocating to the Sooner State. He loves the outdoors which was one of the things that brought him here. He enjoys camping, fishing, snowmobiling, snorkeling, volleyball, squash, and tennis. He also recently began learning to play the banjo.
Dr. Perry is excited to treat the children of Oklahoma and looks forward to meeting you and your family.
Dr. Perry loves to serve and has participated in outreach programs both internationally and domestically.
During his second year at Utah State he had the opportunity to go on a dental mission trip to the Dominican Republic. There he worked along with a pediatric dentist helping young children in little towns throughout the island. It was on that trip that Dr. Perry’s love for dentistry as well as a desire to work with children flourished.
While in dental school he was able to help organize and attend another mission trip, this time to Fortaleza Brazil. There, along with 17 of his closest classmates and three of their favorite professors, they set up a dental clinic in an orphanage. They were able to perform dental work on hundreds of children who would otherwise been unable to receive care.
Recently Dr. Perry participated in a mission trip to Peru where he worked with doctors from all over the U.S. treating the children there. He also participates in Give Kids A Smile locally.
