Kerry O'Connor, DDS

Dr. Kerry O’Connor was born and raised in Chicago, Ill. He graduated from Lyons Township High School, worked as a Taxi cab driver, newspaper printer, sold ice cream at the Brookfield zoo and even made donuts for Dunkin Donuts. He has lots of very interesting stories to tell about those early years but most of all misses the best pizza in the world! He attended college at Andrews University in southern Michigan where he met and married his lovely wife Kathy. Two + years later he was accepted into the dental program at Loma Linda University in southern California. We left Michigan chased out by a snow storm with 2 rusty old cars, a trailer and a 2-month-old baby girl. The summer between our junior and senior year were spent doing volunteer dental work in Rawalpindi, Pakistan by which time we had added a little boy to our family. Dr. O’Connor graduated from L.L.U. 1984, 6th from the top.

Dr. O’Connor and family moved to Auburn following graduation with his family of 3 and one on the way.  He worked as an associate dentist there for 3 years before moving to our current practice in Centralia in 1987.

This has been our home for nearly 30 years; we have raised our kids here and have met so many wonderful people that have added so much to our family joy. We love our office staff and the many patients that have “grown up” with the practice. We look forward to many more years ahead.

Dr. O’Connor enjoys many diverse activities which include his extreme love of cars or really anything with a motor, KACS 90.5 Christian radio where he volunteers, his church family, the great out of doors and his family, his family and his FAMILY!
