Dr. Kelly Perry, Mid-State’s Dental Director and Family Dentist receives the 2017 New Hampshire Dental Society’s Community Service Award.
Dr. JP Ahern, then-President of the NHDS, recognized Dr. Perry as someone who not only works with the underserved, but makes it a point to teach others about the value of evidence-based, public health dentistry. In addition to providing care to those who otherwise might never see a dentist and despite limited financial resources, Mid-State’s Dental program is also a training site for dental students led by Dr. Perry. The training Dr. Perry provides go beyond the clinic by taking dental students out into the community and ensures that these future dentists get the best-possible exposure to dentistry in the Lakes Region.
Congratulations to Dr. Perry for being recognized for her amazing contributions to the community in the field of Dentistry and thank you to the New Hampshire Dental Society for all it does for the profession of dentistry in New Hampshire.
