Dr. Perry was born and raised in the Plaza, Brookside, Waldo, Westport areas. The streets were where his roots were established. He attended Rockhurst High School and then the University of Missouri-Columbia on the C.O.P.S. Police Survivors Scholarship. The scholarship was established for the surviving children of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, in honor of his father’s service to the KCMO police department. He earned a Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Missouri- Kansas City in 2004. Again, he received an academic scholarship during dental school from the American College of Dentists, for exemplifying excellence through outstanding leadership and exceptional contributions to dentistry and society.
Dr. Perry is a member of the American Dental Association and Missouri Dental Association.
