Perkinson & Associates is now Virginia Family Dentistry
Name Change Reflects Team Approach to Dental Care

Richmond, Va. (Feb. 24, 2014) – Dr. Baxter Perkinson & Associates has changed its name to Virginia Family Dentistry. The change, effective immediately, reflects the practice’s growth in multispecialty dental care and its expanded presence in Central Virginia today with 11 locations.

“When I opened my practice more than 40 years ago, it was a small dental office with one mission, to help patients smile by giving them quality dental care in a caring patient centered environment,” said founder Dr. Baxter Perkinson. “We’ve grown substantially over the years because of this philosophy and have always invested heavily in professional training and the latest dental equipment to deliver the best care possible to our patients. Our practice takes pride using a team approach in the care of each of our patients in all of our locations. The group now consists of 45 doctors who spend hours of additional training to be at the forefront of dentistry. In fact, we have just completed our own 100-seat training center so we can learn and share new ideas with each other. It is truly an exciting time for growth and development of our practice.”

Perkinson has often been referred to as a pioneer in dental implants and full mouth dental rehabilitations. Dr. Baxter Perkinson & Associates has provided Central Virginia with a unique dental practice model, one that provides its patients with multispecialty care, including specialists in orthodontics, endodontics, periodontics, cosmetic dentistry and prosthodontics, as well as general dentistry for patients of all ages.

“Virginia Family Dentistry is a perfect description of who we are,” according to Gil Roberts, CEO and practice administrator. “We’re a family of more than 300 dental professionals and staff, who provide just about every procedure dentistry has to offer. And we focus on the family, from small children to mature adults. Our patients come from across Central Virginia and beyond. The name suits us very well.”

Nothing but the name has changed, Roberts added. Services, the attention to detail and patient-centered dental care are still our top priorities.
