Meet Dr. Berry


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

dr.jpgI 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.
