I enjoy the many challenges that come with being a dentist in general practice for the past 10 years. Outside of the office, my wife, children and I enjoy various outdoor activities, particularly camping and fishing. I also enjoy wood working.

The dental care you deserve is waiting for you at a nearby Park Dental.

The doctor and the assistant (I apologize I do not know what the role is called) were the best. We had a lot of laughs and made things very comfortable.

Was so wonderful for my son's very first visit. Both were not pushy and made it a great experience for him. Even if my son didn't allow much but they both followed his lead and made him feel extra comfortable.

my appointment was 5 pm and I feel like the doctor did not enough time to do thorough exam and he mention he will further review my X-ray tomorrow telling the hygienist to remind him but does not see issue on the tooth that I said sometimes bother me. but it's day 5 now since my appointment and I have not been updated of the finding of my other x Ray if all are good or not. May Be next time I will choose an earlier appointment time and see how it goes.

Dr. Kerr was very nice and communicated well. I was a little anxious with a new dentist and hygienist but all went well!

Dr. Kerr is a skilled dentist. The last 2 times I had bridges put in - I had no pain after the Novocain wore off. It was like I never went to the dentist. He is very friendly and I trust his judgment and work completely. His assistants are very good too!
