Dr. Paul Perrine knew from an early age that he wanted to be a dentist, following in his father and sister’s footsteps. Through high school and undergraduate college, he worked for and shadowed his father to get a jump-start on his dental knowledge. He attended West Virginia University and received his B.S. in Animal and Nutritional Sciences in 2010. In 2014, he graduated from West Virginia University School of Dentistry, earning his Doctorate of Dental Surgery.
Upon graduation, he practiced for two years with his father and sister at Perrine Family Implant and Aesthetic Dentistry in Cowen, WV. He also practiced with Dr. Mike Moore and Dr. Michelle Brown at Oceana Dental Center in Oceana WV, for two years. In 2016, he married Dr. Ashton Staunton and together they bought their practice, Perrine and Staunton Family Dentistry, the former Layne and Myers.
Dr. Perrine chose to be a general dentist because he enjoys all facets of dentistry. “I really enjoy being able to do different procedures and not solely focused on one aspect of dentistry.” Dr. Perrine’s favorite aspect of practicing is dealing with the people. In only three years of being in Jackson County, he has formed a special bond with his patients and looks forward to serving them the rest of his life. “I feel very blessed to have the opportunity of practicing with my wife and be in the community of Ripley. Ripley is a very special place with the feel of a small tight knit community but still having all the necessities.”
Dr. Perrine performs all types of procedures such as restorations, fixed and removable prosthodontics, extractions, restoring implants, teeth whitening, and pediatric dentistry. “I love to be able to help patients become pain free and most of all prevent patients from having pain.” He is very proud to give patients a healthy and beautiful dentition.
