Dr. Peter Pryor
Dr. Peter Pryor Jr. was born and raised on a small farm outside Lexington, Kentucky. He completed his undergraduate degree in Anthropology and Psychology at Wake Forest University, in Winston-Salem, NC, during which, he served as both the Chair of Philanthropy and Sergeant of Arms for the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity. Following his graduation, he briefly resided on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands and worked as a dental assistant. This life experience largely contributed to Dr. Pryor’s decision to pursue a career in dental medicine.
Dr. Pryor graduated from The University of Louisville School of Dentistry, in 2015, and served as an extern within the Seneca National Health System, in Irving, NY, prior to this graduation. He subsequently completed a two-year general practice dental residency at Wake Forest University. Through this residency program, he developed a wide breadth of knowledge concerning dental medicine in both hospital and private practice settings with a focus on severely medically compromised patients, orofacial trauma and infection, surgery (including implants), pediatrics, IV conscious sedation and special needs.
In his spare time, Dr. Pryor enjoys playing guitar, traveling, being outside, and spending time with his only sister, Liz, and his dog, Pokey. Patients and co-workers value Dr. Pryor’s exceptional attention to detail, conscientious attitude, and kind “gentle giant” demeanor.
