About Our Team

We work to create beautiful smiles one person at a time.

When you walk into the Kennerly Dental office, you’ll receive personalized care in a relaxed and gentle environment. We know that not everyone enjoys going to the dentist, so we work to make sure every patient is as comfortable as possible in our office.

Our team wants to take care of you and your family’s dental health, and we don’t want you to dread appointments.

At Kennerly Dental, we are proud to offer the highest quality care for our patients in a warm and friendly atmosphere where all of our patients feel comfortable. We’re a family dental and cosmetic office that makes a point to listen to our patients’ needs and treat everyone as individuals.

Since 1979, we’ve been caring for our patients like family, personalizing each treatment to their needs, desires, and ability.

All team members at Kennerly Dental are custom trained and experienced to give you a high-quality dental experience that is pleasant as well as effective.

We come to work with a “Patient First” attitude and do our best to make every appointment at our office a positive experience.

With over 50 years combined dental experience, we provide state-of-the-art dental services with care and compassion for our patients. We won’t suggest a treatment option that hasn’t been tested and proven to be effective.

Our patients can rest easy knowing that we won’t experiment with unproven new technology and will only utilize safe and effective techniques.

Kennerly Dental is a family dentist in the truest sense of the phrase. Led by a father and son team, we provide outstanding dental care for families in the St. Louis area.

Ed attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry and was granted his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in 1975 after having completed the program in only three years.

Following his early graduation, Ed returned to St. Louis and began his professional career. He practiced as an associate dentist in a group practice for several years to gain experience.

Ed married his beautiful wife Sharon in 1971, and they reside in Sunset Hills, Missouri. They both enjoy an active life in their community and church. Their proudest achievement has been successfully raising their three children and witnessing their achievements.

Ed and Sharon love regularly attending St. Louis Cardinals and Blues games and spending as much time as possible at their second home in Lake of the Ozarks with friends and family.  Currently, a young Shiba Inu named Jake has been helping to keep them active, healthy, and happy.



 Dr. David M. Schertzer

Following graduation from Lindbergh High School in 1997, David was selected as one of about 20 high school scholars from the United States to attend a specialized program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry.
