Meet Dr. Berry


L. Ruth Berry, D.M.D., P.A.

Doctor Berry

I am so excited to have you consider our office for your orthodontic needs. There is nothing that can compare to the pleasure I get from giving someone a wonderful smile. That moment when the braces finally come off and you see your new smile is priceless to me, and I would love to share it with you.

About Me:
I was born and raised in Homestead, Florida. Upon graduating from high school, I left Homestead for Gainesville to become a GATOR! My education includes:

  • BS in Microbiology with high honors – University of Florida
  • Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) with honors – University of Florida,
  • Orthodontic Specialty Certificate – Louisiana State University

I became the first female from the LSU Orthodontic Program to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. Board certification involves additional testing and presentation of orthodontic cases to the Board. Only 30% of the orthodontists in the United States complete this process.

Participation in Professional Associations:

  • American Association of Orthodontists
  • Southern Association of Orthodontists
  • Florida Association of Orthodontists
  • American Dental Association
  • Pinellas County Dental Association

I was in private practice in the Ormond Beach/Daytona Beach area prior to relocating to the Pinellas County area with my husband.

When not in the office, I enjoy flying, fishing, and boating with my husband, and going to Gator games. I am also a member of the Rotary Club of Seminole.
