Brush 'em

Brush your teeth twice a day, in the morning and before bedtime, with fluoride toothpaste. Make sure to brush all sides of your teeth, as well as, your tongue.

Floss the ones you want to keep

Floss or use another between-the-tooth cleaner daily to remove plaque and bits of food from areas your toothbrush can't reach.

The greatest wealth is health

Eat a balanced diet for good general health and limit sugary snacks. Avoid tobacco, smokers are more likely to develop periodontal disease & tooth loss.

Come see us

Visit your dentist regularly. Professional cleanings are the only way to remove tartar, which traps bacteria along the gum line.

Get to know Us

Our Practice

We have been at the forefront of dental health in Michigan for over one hundred years. Dr. Edgar James (Gloria's father) began practicing in 1921. He was board certified in periodontics in 1945.


The ‘Original,’ Dr. Gloria, practiced dentistry for sixty-five years after graduating as the only woman of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry Class of 1956 and was beloved by us all. A woman of endless energy and warmth and a periodontist of international reputation, we cannot believe that she is gone. Her glorious smile lives on in our hearts and in our practice!

Dr. Gloria joined her father as a young dentist, enabling her to see the Kerry Family practice become a ninety-nine year tradition of maintaining dental health and bright smiles. Dr. Karen has practiced with her mother for thirty-five years and continues her legacy. Dr. Taylor and Dr. Kelly graduated from University of Michigan Dental School (voted the #1 Dental School in the Country) and both are excited to follow in their mother’s and grandmother's footsteps.


Beyond sustaining or improving your beautiful smile, Kerry Family Dental offers you almost one hundred years of combined professional experience to help you achieve and sustain oral health!

Our Commitment

We’re approved Delta Dental and Cigna DPPO dentists serving the University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University, and so many more valued patients in Ann Arbor and the surrounding areas. We bring education, experience and passionate care to your oral health. Our hope is that you may keep your teeth for life.

Our Technology

The Kerry Family Dental offers you the latest in digital x-ray technology.

Digital x-rays offer a high-resolution image of your entire mouth with a 50% reduction in radiation over traditional film x-rays used by other dentists. X-rays play an invaluable role in the diagnosis of dental problems, as well as providing a clear picture for a dentist to accurately diagnose and provide necessary treatment. Not only do we reduce your exposure to radiation almost in half, but also the detailed accuracy of our dental equipment cuts your appointment time in half.

Ask about our other advanced dental equipment and procedures. The Kerry Family is dedicated to the proposition of providing the best dental care in Ann Arbor.

The Kerry Family Dental currently treats over 23 patients who are over ninety-years-old. They all have all their teeth.

I have been a patient of Kerry Family Periodontics working with three generations of the family for over sixty-three years. I am very grateful for the care, expertise and friendship that I have experienced. It is a tribute to the Kerry family that I still have all of my teeth and my health well into my nineties.

- Mandell L. Berman

Dr. Karen is by far the most detail oriented dentist I've ever been to. I have yet to find a dentist as awesome as she is, since I've moved to New Mexico!

- Erin Dughie

Dr. Karen is the best dentist I’ve ever had! She is deeply intelligent, charismatic, and warm. Dr. Karen focuses on the whole patient which means a lot to me. During my visits, she always educates me about maintaining good oral health. She genuinely cares a lot! As one of the other comments mentioned, she does an amazing job at deep cleanings! I always leave with a better attitude because I know she’s done her best. But this level of care doesn’t stop with Dr. Karen, her team is great! Kelly and Priscilla always makes me feel like my singular visit is the most important visit of the day. But I’m positive that level of care and service is extended to all their patients! I highly recommend visiting Dr. Karen and her team!

- DeMario Bell

I had an amazing experience at this dental office! The staff is very friendly and accommodating to the patients and the dentists were able to give me the advice I needed for my oral health care concerns. I would strongly recommend coming to this practice for your oral hygiene needs.

- Yara Moussaed

Dr. Kerry is the warmest dentist I've ever met! I used to be afraid to go to the dentist, but Dr. Kerry makes it so easy! She truly cares about her patients and always gives good advice for their own good. The staffs at the dental office are also very friendly. I highly recommend this place!!

- Ying-Ting Weng

I have been going to Dr. Karen for forever and her mother, Gloria Kerry, for years before that. And now Dr. Karen’s beautiful daughters have joined the practice. It’s a family affair and they make you feel like a part of it all. It’s a pleasure coming here and to not be frought with anxiety. I’m so happy that I can look forward to more years of exceptionally good dental care.

- Brenda LaVanway

Dr. Karen is the best! I go to her 4 times per year for my deep cleanings. I've never had a dentist clean my teeth so perfectly. Ever since I started seeing her she has used such great preventative care measures, it has kept me from having any cavities! I don't know about you, but it seemed like every time I went to previous dentists they were looking for something to work on (such as filling in cavities) to make more money instead of trying to prevent them. Dr Kerry just wants you to have happy and healthy gums and teeth, and she will go above and beyond to make sure of that. I HIGHLY recommend Kerry Family Periodontics!!

- Miriam Wark

I have been a regular of the Kerry Family Practice since 2004. Dr. Gloria received me and I was mesmerized by her smile and how her eyes shone when she saw a mouth full of teeth – I miss her. She then referred me to Dr. Karen. I have since referred my family to her.

I enjoy going to my dental appointments. Karen Kerry promotes a personal relationship with each patient as an individual and her decisions are made based not only on dental needs, but also on personality traits, and common sense. Priceless!

- Betina Schlossberg

I've been to several dental offices throughout Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area in the past 12 years and I can say that Kerry Family Periodontics is the best out of all them. Staff is always nice, helpful and caring. I've been a patient of Kerry Family Periodontics for 4 years now and they go above and beyond every time. Dr. Karen Kerry is the best when it comes to cleaning teeth.

- Charles Watts

I used to be a dental-phobe. Dr Kerry has made it so a cleaning is now not a thing to be feared! We have brought our kids here since their first check ups and none of them have ANY concerns about going to the dentist.

- Beth Lawless

Dr. Kerry puts a smile on your face. She takes her time getting to know you as her patient. She also explains in detail what type of dental work (medical procedure) needs to be done. She cares for her patients very much. The staff is welcoming and very well organized. I would highly recommend Kerry Family Dental.
