Dr. Shelton


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

Son of Mr. Charles and Mrs. Nelle Shelton, Dr. Shelton has always focused on family and community. After graduating from the Medical College of Georgia in 1994, he wanted to return to Perry and practice dentistry in order to return the support to a community that encouraged him throughout his education.  

Perry Dental Associates gives back by supporting local charities such as Covenant Care Adoption Services, First Love Ministry, Focus on the Family, and numerous school and community outreach projects.  Dr. "Louis", as he's lovingly referred as, is actively involved with Perry Presbyterian church, local high schools, and special olympics.  When all is said and done, Dr. Louis claimst nothing should come before glorifying God through loving Him first and loving others as Christ exemplified.

“It’s more than just a smile,” says Dr. Louis, “The smile comes from inside.”He often shares what God has taught him through his bout with cancer, and always has a listening ear for patients going through similar trials.
