Meet Dr. Perry
Once upon a time (in 1992), Dr. Blake Perry was a teenager who was given the gift of cosmetic dentistry for his own smile. Dr. Kent Willer was a pioneer cosmetic dentist who made structural improvements for Dr. Perry’s young smile. This, and a high school baseball coach, Dr. Stobvie, also a creative and transformative dentist, shaped his interest in cosmetic and implant dentistry.
From dental school at the University of Iowa until today, Dr. Perry has had diverse experiences including touching the clouds as a jet pilot in the U.S.A. Air Force. He has also trained with many dental specialists with the help of mentors and training at the Kois Center, CAD Star with James Klim, and CEREC Training in Scottsdale.
He is continually learning and giving back by participating in the Smile Virtual Elite, CEREC Doctors, The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and nonprofit groups like Rise-Up Kids International, and Circle of Empowerment. Dr. Perry is a life learner with empathy.
For the last 12 years, he has been striving to master the arts and science of a confident smile and the joy of tasty meals with dental implants.
The unique experiences and skills not only allow him to deliver beautiful results, but also ensure optimal life health, enjoyment and longevity. With an eye for precision and detail he learned as a fighter pilot and student, he’s able to see the tiniest details that make a big impact. Known for being into golfing, surfing, skiing, and CrossFit, Dr. Perry is usually outside on a trail or sailing with his family.
His philosophy of dental implants are strength and structural form that mimics the function of chewing and speaking. His philosophy of dentistry is building confidence through the art and science and inspiration of nature.

Building personal connections with my teammates and the community we serve, makes coming to work everyday a pleasure.

Helping patients navigate the world of insurance here at Perry Family Dentistry is both rewarding and challenging. The team here at Perry Family Dentistry was a great fit for me because we are more like family than coworkers, and we all have the same goals of providing excellent care to patients.
When not in the office you can find me spending time with my daughter, camping, fishing, boating, or spending time with friends and family.
