Dr. Dennis G. Perala, DMD
Dr. Perala was born and raised in Portland, Or. He received a BS in Biology in 1986 from the University of Oregon while working in the operating room at Sacred Heart Hospital. He traveled to Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA where he obtained his DMD in 1990 graduating in the top 5% of his class. After seeing all the east coast had to offer, he returned for his Certificate in Periodontics from Oregon Health Sciences University in 1992. He has volunteered many weeks of dental care in South America. When Dr. Perala isn’t working, you can find him spending time with family, enjoying the outdoors, fishing and gardening.
He began his practice in Periodontics in Portland and taught study clubs at OHSU focusing on implant and dental hygiene education. While working full-time he continued to pursue his desire to reach and educate dentists, which led him in 2007 to ADA accredit and create curriculum for the Pacific Dental Institute. He worked at the institute with Dr. John Sorensen and performed many successful All-on-Four™ cases.
He continues to educate other dentists on dental implants and lectures on bone grafting. He was the Dental Director for an Oregon health Plan dental insurance program for many years and member of several committees and board of directors that aimed to provide affordable dental care. To better serve his patients, he continues to learn new skills and high quality latest technologies.
