Their success and skill is evident from the thriving Cobb County practice. “The team is as passionate as I am; I will tolerate no less.

Many of Dr. Kimmerling’s patients have been coming to him for over twenty five years.

Dr. Kimmerling’s passion for dentistry is so great that he feels driven to pass that fervor along to other dentists. “I want to accelerate the educational process of young dentists. They will have a faster learning curve as I mentor them. And, ultimately this will benefit the community as they expand into other areas and neighborhoods,” Kimmerling says.

“I am a firm believer that it is essential to invest in technology. I am driven to reinvest in myself and my practice on a continuous basis,” says Kimmerling. As they receive care in one of the 13 operatories, patients can easily review their treatment options on one flat-screen television and enjoy a show on another. The latest iTero impression system takes a digital impression for something like a crown and sends a three-dimensional image to the lab.
