Dr. Wilkerson and his terrific wife, Patricia, married in 1980 and have three wonderful children: Todd, Whitney and Ryan and an extraordinarily beautiful granddaughter, Carolina!

After attending the University of South Florida on a full basketball scholarship, Dr. DuPont entered Emory University’s College of Dentistry. He graduated in 1979 and that same year joined the prestigious practice of Drs. Peter E. Dawson and Pete Roach in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Since then, Dr. DuPont has spent his career solving serious and extensive esthetic and functional dental problems for a growing number of grateful patients.
Dr. DuPont started out in 1979 assisting in the practice lab. His natural talent for sculpting was quickly recognized by Dr. Peter Dawson – a world-renowned educator and innovator in restorative dentistry. Dr. Dawson invited Dr. DuPont to work side-by-side with him and to see both his approach to patients and his overall philosophy of finding conservative solutions to help patients save their teeth for a lifetime.
The time-tested principles that he learned early on in his career and that he has applied, and improved upon through product and technology advances, have served him well in his approach to solving severe esthetic and functional problems due to tooth wear, damaged and lost teeth, and occlusion and bite problems. From those early days through to today, Dr. DuPont’s passion for developing comprehensive treatment plans for challenging cases, his delivery of compassionate patient care and his dedication to both esthetic and functional excellence have resulted in hundreds and hundreds of success stories.
Following in the footsteps of his mentor, Dr. Peter Dawson, Dr. DuPont is a founding member of the Center for Advanced Dental Studies – now called the Dawson Academy. Invited to lecture nationally, and internationally, on techniques and creative approaches to solving difficult dental problems for patients around the world, Dr. DuPont finds great satisfaction in sharing his extensive experience and knowledge with fellow dental professionals.
His numerous professional and academic affiliations include serving as an Affiliated Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Florida’s College of Dentistry. Dr. DuPont has served as past president of the Pinellas County Dental Association and has taught at the L.D. Pankey Institute for many years. Honored by his peers as a Fellow in the American College of Dentists, Dr. DuPont was also selected as “One of America’s Top Dentists.”
He and his wife Janet enjoy spending time with their four daughters, Erin, Kristen, Catherine, and Lauren as well as their seven grandchildren.
Dr. DuPont’s interests include fishing, golf, and volunteering in his church, St. Raphael’s Catholic Church. He and his wife also enjoy working with engaged and married couples at St. Raphael’s Church.
