Dr. Blake Sherwood was born and raised in Missouri. While in college, he met his wife Dana, a native Montanan. He then attended Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. While in dental school, he received a competitive scholarship from the U.S. Air Force, allowing him to fulfill a lifelong goal to serve and give back to the country that has provided him so many opportunities.
Dr. Sherwood graduated with honors from dental school, attended officer training at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama, and immediately began a one-year dental residency at Barksdale AFB in Louisiana. Residency provided Dr. Sherwood with the opportunity to learn advanced techniques in all dental specialties, including oral sleep appliance therapy, orthodontics, laser surgery techniques, same-day crown delivery, CBCT implementation, implant placement and restoration, bone graft placement and management, moderate sedation techniques, and periodontal surgery. He’s also received advanced training in clear tray aligner orthodontics and is a certified Invisalign™ provider.
Following residency, Dr. Sherwood was stationed at Whiteman AFB in Missouri for two years. While there, he worked with a motivated and supportive general dental team that taught him important lessons in maintaining a workplace culture that emphasizes patient safety and comfort.
From the start, Dr. Sherwood’s wife introduced him to the beauty of Montana and their goal ever since has been to call Montana home. They have three beautiful children and as a family enjoy fishing, long range shooting, hiking, extended family gatherings, and making homemade pizza for Friday evening movie nights. Dr. Sherwood looks forward to spending many years in Plains as a dental provider and conscientious community member.
