Meet David Perpall, DMD

Dr. David Perpall

Like his father and grandfather before him, Dr. David Perpall was drawn to helping people through a career in dentistry. Born and raised in the metro Atlanta area, Dr. Perpall attended high school in Norcross before receiving his bachelor’s degree from UNC-Charlotte. After graduation, Dr. Perpall began a career in dental supply & equipment sales with Atlanta Dental Supply. It was through his experiences observing the many different facets and specialties of dentistry that Dr. Perpall decided he would return to school to obtain his degree in dentistry.

Dr. Perpall earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Georgia Regents University, College of Dental Medicine, now Augusta University, Dental College of Georgia. He continued his education earning a Certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) from Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center, Augusta, GA. This was an optional year of training in more complex dental procedures such as dental implants, surgical extractions, root canal therapy, periodontal surgeries, and medically complex patient care.

Philanthropy has been a big part of Dr. Perpall’s life and career, as well. He volunteered his time and services to Help A Child Smile, a mobile dental clinic that treats children gaining thorough pediatric dental experience. He has also been on mission trips to Trinidad and Peru to help those who would otherwise have no access to dental care. Dr. Perpall is an active participant in volunteer organizations such as Dentistry from the Heart, Hope Dental Clinic, Georgia Mission of Mercy (G-MOM), a project of the GDA and Christ Community Health Services’ Dental Mission Downtown (DMD) Project.

When not pursuing his passion of dentistry, you can find Dr. Perpall spending time with his beautiful wife Mary Beth, a native of Evans, GA, and their three beautiful children Anna Lee, Ellie & Abe.

Dear Patients and friends,

Our office has made the decision to temporarily suspend operations for all elective dental procedures and new patients. We have come to this decision based on available facts from the CDC, recommendations from dental associations around the country, and in keeping with our commitment to the safety of our patients and employees.

We are operating in the abundance of caution in our decision, as this is a situation we have not yet faced before.

Dental work that is non-essential and non-emergent will be postponed until further notice, and we will call to reschedule any pending appointments.

If a dental emergency arises, and you are a patient of record, Dr. Perpall will be available to come into the office and use proper protocol (as we normally do) to care for immediate needs or concerns. If you have a non-urgent concern, please leave a voicemail at our office line at 706-395-0004 or e-mail us at smiles@riverwatchdental.com .

If you have an emergency that you would like to speak to Dr. Perpall about, or you have a problem that needs to be immediately addressed please call 706-395-0004 and leave a message stating your need and Dr. Perpall will call you back.

We appreciate your understanding during this time. We will continue to be in touch as this situation develops in regard to re-opening the office again.

Sincerely,

David M. Perpall
