Eric DePetris DMD

 Dr. Eric DePetris has provided General Dentistry to adults and children for over 20 years.  A native of Pittsford, New York Dr. DePetris grew up in a small town and owes much of his success to the values and old-world traditions of a tight knit community.  The son of a physician, Dr. DePetris knew his future would lie in healthcare.  And after graduating from Florida Southern College in 1991, he went on to complete his DMD at Tufts University of Dental Medicine.  Dr. DePetris received numerous awards during dental school including merit scholarships and a United States Navy Academic Scholarship.  At the culmination of his hospital residency in Bethesda, Maryland at the National Naval Medical Center, Dr. DePetris was assigned to the USS Coronado, AGF-11, Commander, Third Fleet.  He relocated to San Diego, California and embarked on an exciting 2 year assignment which took him to many far off lands including Japan, Korea, Canada and Mexico.  Dr. DePetris opted to shift into the realm of private practice in 2002 after gaining significant experience while serving in the U.S. Navy Dental Corps.  He moved back to his hometown in upstate New York and ultimately settled in sunny Jacksonville, Florida several years later.

Dr. DePetris is an active member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Florida Dental Association, Northeast District Dental Association and the Clay County Dental Society.  Dr. DePetris also serves on the Florida Board of Dentistry as an expert witness.  Dr. DePetris regularly volunteers at Healing Hands dental clinic in Jacksonville, Florida helping to provide necessary dental treatment to those in need.

When Dr. DePetris is not caring for his patients he enjoys spending time with his 16 year old son, A.J.  And taking his hobbies to the limit, he is both an accomplished technical scuba diver and a pilot.
