HOOVER, AL – Dr. Lucas Perrigo, a Hoover cosmetic dentist, recently completed an office expansion project and has added a dental assistant to his growing practice.
Baylee Law joined Perrigo Dental Care this year as the office expanded its number of dental operatories from six to 11. Dr. Perrigo said his office is excited to be hiring new staff members and expanding its capabilities at a time when many businesses are downsizing.
“It’s important for us to offer the best services for our community members and patients, and that means having the most talented staff,” Dr. Perrigo said. “Baylee has been a great addition to our staff, and our patients have enjoyed her energetic attitude.”
Dental assistants support the dentist and work chairside to provide patients with general and restorative dental care. Dental assistants also work with patients to establish effective oral hygiene routines, conduct instrument sterilization and take X-rays for doctor review.
Dr. Perrigo said Law brings a fresh perspective to Perrigo Dental Care and has a knack for keeping patients comfortable and calm during their dental visits.
“Baylee is someone who clearly cares deeply about every patient and works tirelessly to make our patients feel at home,” Dr. Perrigo said. “As we continue to expand our facility and grow, we’re proud to find dental professionals like Baylee who can provide the high level of care patients of Perrigo Dental Care have come to expect.”
Dr. Perrigo has owned the comprehensive dental practice Perrigo Dental Care for more than 10 years, serving the Birmingham suburban communities of Hoover, Vestavia Hills, Homewood, Helena, Pelham, Alabaster, Hewitt, Mountain Brook, Gardendale and Trussville.
Perrigo Dental Care offers preventive and family dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, sleep apnea treatment, TMJ treatment and full-mouth restoration with dental implants all under one roof. Individual services include cleanings, X-rays, dental sealants, fillings, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, teeth whitening treatments, bone grafting and sinus lifts, tooth extractions, gum disease treatment, Fastbraces, Invisalign and implant-supported dentures.
Dr. Perrigo moved to Birmingham, Ala., after earning his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Auburn University in 1994. For two years, Dr. Perrigo worked at a dental lab and as an orthodontic assistant while attending the University of Alabama at Birmingham and earning prerequisites for dental school. He graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry in 2002.
Following graduation, Dr. Perrigo worked for a cosmetic dental practice for one year and then another year at a denture and emergency dental clinic. In 2004, he purchased the location that is now Perrigo Dental Care from Dr. Donald Romano, who is still Dr. Perrigo’s associate.
Dr. Perrigo has studied at international live-training dental implant courses and completed continuing education courses in cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry. He holds memberships with the American Dental Association, International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Alabama Dental Association, Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and Birmingham District Dental Society.
Dr. Romano completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1971 and then received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry in 1976. Dr. Romano was inducted into the prestigious Omicron Delta Kappa, a national leadership honor society, and received the Dean’s Medal while attending the University of Alabama. Before establishing his Hoover dental practice, Dr. Romano served from 1976 to 1983 as an assistant professor of dentistry at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry.
