About Dr. Jerry Lanier
Dr. Jerry Lanier is the founder and CEO of Kids Dental Kare, the premier brand of children's dental clinics in Southern California.
Dr. Lanier’s passion for children’s dentistry began early, during his studies at Meharry Dental School in Nashville, Tennessee, when he encountered an ailing 9-year old girl with numerous cavities and an absolute phobia of treatment. Dr. Lanier was able to immediately empathize with the young girl’s panic, since it reminded him of his own fear of doctors growing up, and made a promise to help this young girl, and other children like her, overcome the anxiety of visiting the dentist. This very promise has been the foundation and basic building blocks of Dr. Lanier’s organization, Kids Dental Kare.
Dr. Lanier started his professional career with the US Public Health Service in New Orleans working at a children’s clinic for four years, before venturing into private practice. In 1991 Dr. Lanier relocated to Los Angeles where he worked as an associate dentist, before deciding to launch his own clinic in 1994, establishing the very first Kids Dental Kare clinic.
By the end of 1994, Dr. Lanier opened another office in Boyle Heights, and within 3 years after that he opened an additional 6 offices throughout Southern California. Since 1994, Dr. Lanier has launched a total of 14 Kids Dental Kare offices, and currently12 continue in operation.
Dr. Lanier oversees approximately 24 other Kids Dental Kare dentists that now render the bulk of the treatment while he focuses on monitoring training, patient service and ensuring high-quality work standards. Dr. Lanier hand-picks dental care providers that have proven to be the best of the best, therefore ensuring that Kids Dental Kare continues to be the top pediatric dental clinic chain in Southern California.
Dr. Lanier truly believes in giving back to the communities he serves, and has been bestowed with various accolades from state, city and local governments as well as private organizations for his community involvement, including rendering free screenings and treatment to underprivileged children.
Dr. Lanier is now embarking on another phase of his career which includes public speaking, seminars, writing his blog and book, “The Entrepreneur Dentist”, which will detail a step-by-step program to successfully launching and managing dental offices.
Dr. Lanier is happily married and a proud father of two, and currently lives with his family in Los Angeles, CA.
