Dr. Garris

Dr. Genevieve Garris was born in Naples, FL, and with a Merit and Medallion Scholar’s Award Scholarship, attended the University of Florida for her undergraduate education. She graduated earning the distinction of Cum Laud Honors for a Bachelors of Science with a Major in Chemistry and Dean’s List Award for Chemistry. Following graduation, Genevieve was accepted into the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA.

While at Tufts, Dr. Garris expanded her clinical growth by participating in didactic, clinical case research for specialty clinics in the school using integrated curriculum with Dental, Medical and Biomedical students. In addition, Dr. Garris expanded on her patented concept of the PHAN (Ploy Hybrid Airborn Neutalizer), sponsored by the Lemelson-MIT National Grant, and integrated the technology for application to third world country medical centers.

Upon graduation, Dr. Garris earned the distinction of the Clinical Excellence Award in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and graduated with honors. Genevieve practices with a philosophy that to be a dentist not only means to be a knowledgeable, skilled clinician but also a compassionate caregiver, and places highest value on being a health advocate for her patients. Dr. Garris is an experienced provider focused on all aspects of restorative dentistry including oral surgery and dental implants and takes pride in caring for her patients at the highest clinical standard.

Since graduation, Genevieve has become a member of several dental professional organizations including the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. She also teaches Clinical Dentistry to dental students at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. As a life-long learner herself, Dr. Garris also completes added continuing education per year and participates in several study groups, additional clinical and academic training through Spear and Dawson and Study Group Seminars.

Outside of the office, Genevieve enjoys spending time with her family and friends. As a self-proclaimed “foodie” she loves cooking and traveling to try new things, especially to eat! When at home, Genevieve enjoys working in the garage on her hobby of cars.

Dr. Garris and her staff are simply the best. Having guided me through complex dental implants, Dr. Garris gave me renewed hope and a beautiful smile. Her caring, compassionate and humorous approach dimmed by lifelong fear of the dentist. I cannot recommend her enough.

This is a wonderful facility. New, colorful, with a floor plan that's open, in concept enough to have open visibility to the whole operation. From supply areas to examination & treatment rooms to administration to the front lobby. Very friendly staff, and my hygienists did a fabulous job. 👍
