Meet Dr. Louis Shelton

Born and raised in Perry, Georgia, Dr. Louis Shelton proudly serves his hometown and surrounding community with a dental practice structured around family.

After graduating from the Medical College of Georgia in 1994, “Dr. Louis,” as he’s loving called, returned to Perry to serve the town he had always called home. In 1999, he and his twin brother, the late Dr. Thomas Shelton, joined practices to form Perry Dental Associates. He considers it a privilege to know and care for his patients and to be a part of the health and wellness of his community. 

Dr. Louis merges state of the art dentistry with small town welcome. The dental field is rapidly changing with improved technologies for better patient outcomes. Dr. Louis is equipped with not only these current standards of care but with thirty years of experience, placing those latest advances in skilled hands. However, Dr. Louis has often said, “It’s more than just a smile I’m investing in. It’s creating a smile that comes from the inside.” He serves his patients with their total health in mind, considering each one’s unique needs and caring for them as if they are a family member. 

Dr. Louis is married to Tesa and they have four children. They are active members of Perry Presbyterian Church and have a special interest in organizations that benefit those with special needs.
