Will I need to see a specialist?

When patients come to our Osceola, IA dental office, they are trusting us with their dental care and to help them make decisions regarding their oral health. In most cases, we can treat you here at Kerr Family Dental without the need for a trip to a specialist. Dr. Kerr even performs surgeries such as dental implants, extractions, and periodontal treatments. He also does most root canal treatment in our office. We even welcome kids without the need to visit a special pediatric dental office.

Of course, every situation has the occasional exception to the rule. If Dr. Kerr feels you would be more comfortable or experience a better outcome by a trip to a specialist, he will refer you to one of our trusted colleagues and follow-up with them – and you- regarding your dentistry.

Simply put, we want you to have successful, high-quality dental care. We want your treatment to be comfortable. Most times, we can provide you with just that! If you do need a specialist at some point, we will always recommend someone that we would recommend for our own friends and family.

If you have questions about your treatment plan, just give us a call!
