Donna M. Gentry, DDS, was born to a military family in Corpus Christi, TX. She received her bachelor's and master's degrees at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN, and her dental degree at Meharry Medical College in Nashville. After graduation, she completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency with the Navy Post Graduate Program.
Immediately following graduation, Dr. Gentry fulfilled her military scholarship obligation with the United States Navy. During her four years stationed at Camp Lejeune, NC, as a naval dental officer and then three more as a civil service dentist for the Marines, she developed a deep compassion for treating patients with severe dental phobia and anxiety. After leaving Camp Lejeune, she worked in private practice in Wilmington before opening SeaSide Dentistry in the region that's been home to her large extended family since the 1960s.
Dr. Gentry is an active participant in the community, working with Gateway Alliance, the 5k Glow Run for Cape Carteret, and the Light Festival. She is also a member of the American Dental Association. She has been blessed with two daughters, Ashley-Marie and Savannah, and a wonderful husband, Steve. She cares deeply about her family and feels it is very important to put them first in her life.
Dr. Gentry is excited to meet you and discuss your dental needs.
