Dr. Will Perkinson was born and raised in Richmond, VA. After graduating with a B.A. in Biology from the University of Virginia, he took a year off to build houses and play mandolin. He then returned to academics and attended Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of Dentistry where he graduated cum laude in 2002. He began working for Virginia Family Dentistry at the Huguenot Road location, including a two year internship with Dr. Baxter Perkinson in full mouth reconstruction and implants. In 2015 he transferred to the Powhatan location, where he plans on staying. He continues to play bluegrass music with Cook County Bluegrass.
As a general dentist, Dr. Perkinson provides routine services including fillings, crowns, veneers, and root canals as well as surgical procedures including wisdom tooth removal, hard and soft tissue grafting, and implants. “I especially enjoy replacing missing teeth. We have more options than ever before with dental implants. When you can’t eat well, your overall health suffers.” Dr. Perkinson also provides several levels of sedation for anxious patients including oral and intravenous conscious sedation. “Anxiety doesn’t have to be a barrier to a healthy mouth.”
Dr. Perkinson attended the Misch Institute for post-doctorate work in dental implants and bone grafting and received his sedation training in 2006 at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. He was adjunct faculty in the VCU Advanced Education in General Dentistry from 2007 to 2012, as well as an occasional lecturer on implant dentistry. Dr. Perkinson is a fellow in the International College of Oral Implantologists, a member of the American Dental Association, the Virginia Dental Association, and the Richmond Dental Society. Dr. Perkinson is also a board member of the Powhatan free clinic, where he enjoys contributing to the local community.
Dr. Perkinson is married with two wonderful daughters, Zoe and Celia. He loves them even though they are a handful. When not working, Will can still be found playing mandolin with Cook County Bluegrass, and chasing children, occasionally at the same time.
