Expanded Dental Office Allows Doctor
and His Sons to Help Even More Patients
Perimenis Dental Group-Trumbull, Connecticut
RORY PERIMENIS, DDS
Dr. Rory Perimenis, a general dentist in Trumbull, Connecticut,
has been in dentistry for over 25 years, and credits his father,
Peter Perimenis, for his influence and guidance into the dental
profession. Over that time, he has helped a lot of patients, and he
counts himself lucky in his business and life. Having the opportunity
to build a new office with space for his two sons to practice
with him has been a continuation of his positive experiences in
dentistry-both in giving and receiving. His oldest son, RJ, already
practices with him, handling the bulk of the office's surgical cases.
His younger son, Tyler, will complete dental school in 2020 and
will become the third Perimenis to care for patients in the new
3,000-square-foot office.
The luxurious, eight-operatory office is high-end, with top-of-the-line
finishes and equipment that allows Dr. Perimenis to provide the very
best clinical care for his patients, so it might be surprising to learn
that he started out in a much more modest dental office-his
basement!
"I opened a 500-square-foot, two-operatory office in the basement
of my house," explained Dr. Perimenis, who accepted every

insurance plan he could just to get new patients in the door in those
early years. "After seven years of practicing at home, I moved the
practice to a four-operatory, 1,500-square-foot facility for the next
18 years."
He might have stayed in that space, but he had to make room for
two new partners...his sons. After years of coaching them in sports
and teaching them the value of working hard and striving for their
own success, they followed him into dentistry and soon, all three
will work together in the family practice. That would have been
impossible in the doctor's existing office, which was set up (and
worked well) for a solo doctor but was not large enough for
three clinicians.
Before locating a new space in an existing office building that could
be gutted and redesigned from scratch, the doctor was working out
of a small, cramped office. The clinical area was not well-separated
from the rest of the practice; in fact, a central file cabinet served as
one of the walls! There were no spaces for true confidential patient
conversations, or even staff discussion. The doctor had invested
in significant post-graduate education and technology to offer
