Welcome to Zoe Dental!

At Zöe Dental we strive to provide dentistry at a mastery level by combining the science of oral health with the art of communication. Zöe means “life” in Greek—when we begin working with you as a patient, we want your first appointment to be the beginning of a lifelong relationship.

Aside from the outstanding care and customer service we strive to provide, we truly want to share in the joys of our patients’ lives. We look forward to hearing about the weddings, graduations, children, travels, etc. However, we also understand that life has its sorrows and, as difficult as they can be, we are here to offer comforting support.

Here at Zöe Dental, we don’t just care for your dental health—our practice is caring about you and sharing life, together.

We depend on you—our patient—to be an integral team member. You know better than anyone how you feel and what you want. It’s our job to listen, make recommendations, and then implement a treatment plan that’s in your best interest.

These Patients Have a Whole New Perspective on the Dentist

quotation marks

I was REALLY impressed with the quality of services and care at Zoe. Allowing a patient to choose what amenities (radio, massage devices, blankets, etc.) they wanted to indulge in was a first for me at any medical practice. Not to mention a gift bag and friendly consultation asking me what was important when I considered dentistry services. I’ve had great experiences with other dentists in the past but Zoe has surpassed them all!

Your entire female Staff are like "Charley's Angels." Pretty ladies with wonderful cheerful dispositions. A pleasure to come through the door and be greeted with beautiful smiles. As you know, my wife, Hope, practiced family dentistry for 40 years, but Dr. Perry is a Master. So are his chairside assistants, Amanda and Olivia, who wonderfully and professionally took great care of me. Plus, they put up with my "bs" chatter/stories. Great dental office, an all super Staff, clean and tidy facility, with up to date modern equipment, and always a complete pleasure during my appointments. I highly recommend Zoe Dental. See ya soon. Thanks...
