Delivering Your Best Smile in Escondido

Get to Know Jeffry S. Kerbs, DDS

Jeffry S. Kerbs, DDS

Dr. Kerbs practices in Escondido, CA and has developed a holistic dental practice that is centered around health, natural beauty and minimally invasive dentistry. Dr. Kerbs graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1983 and since that time has dedicated himself to pursuing knowledge and expertise through thousands of hours of continuing education. The educational courses completed since graduating from dental school include:

  • Two-year Progressive Orthodontics Program, enabling Dr. Kerbs to provide customized orthodontic treatment for both children and adults.
  • Accreditation through the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, an achievement only few have met in the world, giving Dr. Kerbs the expertise to conservatively enhance smiles through advanced cosmetic dentistry.
  • 14-month Loma Linda Implant Maxi-Course, enabling Dr. Kerbs to place dental implants, helping his patients replace missing teeth.
  • 18-month Full Mouth Rejuvenation Residency at the Texas Center for Occlusal Studies and Minimally Invasive Dentistry, enabling Dr. Kerbs to treat TMD and fully rebuild and restore a mouth to eliminate pain in the TMJ, head and neck and bring a smile back to its healthy function and natural beauty.
  • Accreditation through the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, the premier organization promoting holistic dentistry, including mercury-free and mercury-safe practices.
  • Accreditation through the American Academy of Ozone Therapy, which promotes the innovative, holistic use of ozone to eliminate infection and inflammation and stimulate rejuvenation in the mouth and body as a whole.
  • Laser certification with the use of multiple lasers, including the ND-YAG and ER-YAG lasers, allowing Dr. Kerbs to provide many innovative, noninvasive treatments that otherwise would not be possible.
  • Certification through the Pinhole Academy, allowing Dr. Kerbs to correct gum recession with the innovative Pinhole Surgical Technique – the least invasive method currently available for correcting gum recession.
  • Las Vegas Institute (LVI) advanced training on smile design and makeover.
  • Kois Center advanced training on bite analysis and restoration.

Dr. Kerbs’ pursuit of knowledge after dental school led to the decision to practice biological dentistry. He has developed a dental practice that has embraced holistic dentistry, going way beyond just the use of biologically compatible materials. The unique protocols, techniques and his focus on the mouth as a system that is critical to health of the whole body is what makes him a holistic dentist in the truest sense.

Dr. Kerbs’ commitment to continuing education means that he will bring the latest knowledge, discoveries and innovations to his dental practice, helping his patients restore and maintain optimum health of the mouth and body as a whole.

Sara Bender, RDA

Registered Dental Assistant and Treatment Coordinator
Sara graduated with her RDA in 2003. Her mother inspired her to be a dental assistant at a young age. Her mother worked for Dr. Kerbs in 2001. Sara remembers her mom coming home after her first day at Dr. Kerbs office and announcing to her family: “I found our new dentist, we are all going to him from now on.” From then on, Sara started coming to Dr. Kerbs office and upon meeting Dr. Kerbs and Renee, she started looking at dentistry in a new light. She had never experienced a dental visit like the one at Dr. Kerbs' office. After going to dental assisting school and graduating, she knew where she wanted to work, and as soon as a position was available, she started working for Dr. Kerbs.

Dr. Kerbs has provided an opportunity for Sara to grow in her field through numerous continuing-education classes. Sara has grown in her knowledge of dentistry and is inspired by Dr. Kerbs every day. She feels that what Dr. Kerbs provides on a daily basis is beyond anything she has ever seen in dentistry. Sara is passionate about making sure that every patient gets the best dentistry available.
