Meet Dr. Ferrara

eric2015Dr. Ferrara is originally from Kent, Ohio. He graduated from the University of Georgia, where he received his Bachelor of Business Administration degree in 1991. He worked in business for one year and returned to UGA to complete pre-dental requirements.

Dr. Ferrara then returned to Ohio to complete his Doctorate in Dental Surgery at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. He completed an internship in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at OSU and then moved to Dallas, Texas, to complete his specialty training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Parkland Memorial Hospital in 2003. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.

Dr. Ferrara returned to Ohio to practice oral surgery with his father Emilio Ferrara. He was awarded the 2006 Fisk Humanitarian award by the Ohio Dental Association for his aide to the victims in the Gulf Coast in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. After three years of practicing with his father and mentor, Dr. Ferrara returned to Georgia. He now lives and practices in the Atlanta area.

Dr. Ferrara has a special interest in restoring teeth and renewing smiles with dental implant surgery. Dr. Ferrara performs bone grafting procedures and utilizes computer aided implant placement with minimally invasive surgery to restore teeth. Dr. Ferrara places more dental implants in one month than many place in one year! Ask how many implants your dentist or surgeon place – experience and knowledge count and can only come from the number of implants placed!

Dr. Ferrara met his wife while at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. She practices general dentistry in Atlanta and they now enjoy their time together with their three boys. Dr. Ferrara enjoys golfing, swimming, running, snow skiing and spending time with his three boys lacrosse, swimming, baseball, football, and basketball teams. He is an avid Bulldog and Buckeye fan and returns to his alma matters to cheer his two great teams to victory!
