Jason S. Perlman, DDS
Personal & Educational Background
Dr. Jason Perlman grew up in Youngstown, Ohio, before attending Arizona State University, where he received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. Following a brief time working with the city of Phoenix’s small business relations team, he traveled back to his home state to attend the Ohio State University College of Dentistry. He then trained at an general practice residency program at Akron City Hospital’s Center for Dental Health, where he received awards for excellence in restorative, periodontal, and endodontic therapy.
Dr. Perlman’s goal is to educate his patients by demonstrating how their oral health relates to overall body wellness. In doing so, he hopes to enable his patients to take control of their health. He works closely with other healthcare professionals to ensure his patients receive high-quality, comprehensive interdisciplinary care.
Dr. Perlman views dentistry as an art he gets to practice daily. He uses his extensive educational and training background with the latest technology to bridge art and science together. He believes in building personal and professional relationships while dissipating dental phobias through trust, caring sensitivity, warmth, and sincerity. By helping improve the oral health in the community, he hopes to improve people’s overall quality of life, starting with a comfortable, healthy, and aesthetic smile.
Dr. Perlman loves dentistry and has continuously pursued education after receiving his doctorate degree. In particular, he trains at the L.D. Pankey Institute and at Spear Education, which are both recognized worldwide for excellence in advanced technical dentistry. He is also a member of iPankey, a Seattle/Tacoma study club that focuses on treating patients with complex dental needs, including TMJ Disorder and obstructive sleep apnea.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Perlman loves spending time with his wife, Karyn, with whom he shares a love for the outdoors. Together, they spend their free time on weekend hiking and backpacking trips, particularly enjoying when their dogs Moe and Mochi are able to join. He is also an avid bicyclist, and for the past ten years, he has participated in Pelotonia, a grassroots bike tour that raises money for cancer research.
