General Dentistry


What is Great General Dentistry?  

General dentistry is at the heart of our practice. A general dentist is a provider of oral health who is involved in preventing oral disease, maintaining oral health, and treating problems in one’s mouth. However, a great general dentist goes above and beyond simply being able to perform procedures and understands the link between your oral health and your overall health. Dr. Kerr is a great general dentist.  

For instance, maintaining good oral health can help control your blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. This connection between your oral health and your overall health is becoming increasingly well understood. We pride ourselves in being knowledgeable about these connections because we care about you.
