Since then, Perison said, the business has “gone digital” by upgrading technology and going paperless.

“We’ve also added single tooth anesthesia, a computerized system for delivering anesthesia,” Perison said, adding that the anesthesia is virtually painless. “We’ve also upgraded to digital X-rays. It improves our ability to diagnose decay and pathology.”

Perison said all of the upgrades are to benefit patients and improve services for individualized care.

Perison has lived in Orchard Park with her husband, Kevin, and their two children for about 15 years.

She received her bachelor’s degree and her doctor’s degree in dental surgery from the University at Buffalo.

“I’m a hometown girl,” she said. “And I’ve worked in the Southtowns my whole career. … I’m going on 23 years now.”

Village Dental offers many services, including implants, surgeries, soft-tissue laser procedures, whitening, Invisalign (invisible braces), root canals, all-ceramic crowns and tooth replacement options, along with full-mouth rehabilitation and sleep apnea appliances, according to Perison.

“We aren’t a cookie-cutter practice,” Perison said. “We really take care of and pay attention to patients’ needs.”

Chantel Bauer, the lead dental assistant for Perison, said patient care is the practice’s main concern.

“We give each patient individual care; we take time to address all their main concerns and needs. We’re very patient-oriented, we listen, and we’re very understanding about their care and dental health goals,” Bauer said. “We’re all about educating the patient.”

Orchard Park Village Dental is one of two practices Perison runs — the other being Tammy Perison, D.D.S., in West Seneca.

Perison said she’s operated the West Seneca practice for 12 years.

Bauer has worked with Perison for eight years. She bounces between the West Seneca and Orchard Park locations.

“I’m [Perison’s] lead assistant, so wherever she goes, I go,” Bauer said. “She’s just a wonderful person — very upbeat, very charismatic and understanding.”

Perison said being a part of and serving the community are important to her and her practices.

“We’ve donated to … the Quaker Marching Band, the local baseball, softball and hockey teams,” she said. “We have also donated to a local Eagle Scout for his project. … I also volunteer at Good Neighbors Dental Clinic every month.”

Perison said that in the future, she looks to expand the Village Dental practice, improve the technology and offer same-day crowns.
