Embracing Innovation and Collaboration in Pediatric Dentistry

By Dr. Jerry Lanier, “The Entrepreneur Dentist”

As a leading figure in pediatric dentistry, I am proud to share my journey and ongoing commitment to revolutionizing the field. Through the establishment of Kids Dental Kare and my latest initiative, Kids2Dentist, I have strived to create child-friendly and accessible dental services that prioritize the well-being of young patients.

A Journey of Innovation

From humble beginnings to a position of leadership, my journey in dentistry has been driven by a relentless passion for innovation. I firmly believe that embracing new ideas and technologies is essential for providing the best possible care to children.

My establishment of Kids Dental Kare was a significant milestone in this journey. By focusing on creating a welcoming environment and utilizing cutting-edge techniques, we were able to set a new standard for pediatric dental care. This commitment to excellence ultimately led to the successful acquisition of Kids Dental Kare by Western Dental Services, Inc. in 2017.

Introducing Kids2Dentist

Building on the success of Kids Dental Kare, I am excited to introduce Kids2Dentist, my latest initiative aimed at further improving pediatric dental services. Through Kids2Dentist, we are leveraging the power of technology to enhance the patient experience and streamline dental procedures.

One of the key features of Kids2Dentist is the integration of virtual reality (VR) technology. By immersing young patients in a fun and engaging VR environment, we can alleviate anxiety and create a more positive dental experience. This innovative approach not only helps children overcome fear but also allows dentists to perform procedures more efficiently.

Advocating for TurnKey Dental Solutions

In addition to my work with Kids2Dentist, I am a strong advocate for TurnKey dental solutions. The philosophy of “Be in business for yourself but not by yourself” resonates deeply with me. Collaborating with like-minded professionals and leveraging shared resources can lead to greater success and growth in the dental industry.

By embracing TurnKey dental solutions, dentists can focus on what they do best – providing exceptional care to their patients. This approach allows for a more efficient and streamlined practice, enabling dentists to dedicate more time to their patients’ needs.


My journey as “The Entrepreneur Dentist” has been marked by a commitment to innovation and collaboration. Through Kids Dental Kare, Kids2Dentist, and my advocacy for TurnKey dental solutions, I strive to push the boundaries of pediatric dentistry and create a positive impact on the lives of children.

As the field of dentistry continues to evolve, it is crucial for professionals to embrace new ideas, technologies, and collaborative opportunities. By working together and staying at the forefront of innovation, we can ensure that children receive the highest quality dental care in a comfortable and welcoming environment.
