Phillip W. Garrett, DDS, MS

Dr. Phillip Garrett joined AZPerio in the Spring of 2018. He sees patients at the Gilbert and Ahwatukee offices, and spends time in Cottonwood and Sedona when Dr. Whetman is attending continuing education courses and  “sharpening his saw.”

A Michigan native, Dr. Garrett completed his undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University in Rexburg, Idaho. Thereafter, Dr. Garrett graduated from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (high honors), and remained in San Antonio to earn his Master of Science and Certificate in Periodontics (highest honors).

Dr. Garrett has published articles in periodontal, implant, and dental journals on a combination of topics including nanotechnology, implant surface topography, and digital technology. He was selected multiple times to present his research on nanotubes and their effect on healing tissue. He is currently a member of the American Dental Association, the Arizona Dental Association, and the American Academy of Periodontology.


Dr. Garrett, his wife, Lauren, and their three children enjoy spending time outside hiking, swimming, camping, and exploring Arizona together as a family.


“The most rewarding aspect of dentistry for me is building meaningful relationships of trust with patients, our referring doctors, and the team members in our practices. I genuinely enjoy using my talents and skills to improve patients’ quality of life.”
