Dr. Hendry graduated with distinction from VMI in 1975 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering. He received his doctorate from UF College of Dentistry in 1979.
Dr. Hendry has also completed a number of post-doctoral studies including two, two year fellowships in comprehensive dentistry. Additionally, he has fulfilled the requirements and was designated a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry in 1992 and a Master in 1996.
He has been a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Florida Dental Association, Central Florida District Dental Association, and a member of the Woehler Research Group, Inc. (the oldest continuously registered dental study club in the United States). Dr. Hendry presently is licensed to practice dentistry in the state of Florida.
Dr. Hendry lives in Fruitland Park with his wife, Kathy and has three sons.
Dr. Hendry and Dr. Powless have been good friends since meeting many years ago in their research group. He stepped in to help during Dr. Powless’ medical leave and we didn’t want him to part ways! Dr. Hendry has since become a part-time associate dentist in our office!
