Dentistry From the heart Video
Our Mission

Commitment to giving each and every person the dignity, respect, and honor they deserve is important at Kellerman Dental in Glen Carbon, IL.  We also strive to thoroughly understand each person’s needs, concerns, and circumstances.

After recognizing the difficulty and reluctance that many people experience with dental treatment, we believe that each person deserves to be treated as a unique, individual person.

We know that the best professional care is delivered when the patient, doctor, and team partner together in an environment of understanding, communication and respect toward each other with the goal of complete dental and physical health.

Our office commits to providing only the best and most technically advanced dental care using only the highest quality materials and procedures delivered in an atmosphere of physical and emotional care and comfort.

We expect the doctor and every team member to be actively involved in the pursuit of the highest level of education available, to be thoroughly knowledgeable in the most recent technology, and to perform their duties with an exceptional degree of professionalism and competence.

Here at Kellerman Dental, we believe in delivering to each patient more than just a smile.

 

 

Dr Kellerman
Dr. Kevin J. Kellerman DMD

Dr. Kellerman is passionate about providing excellent comprehensive family dentistry. Whenever advanced technology is available to improve the quality or comfort of dental care, Dr. Kellerman has been ready to invest in it in order to provide the best dental experience for you and your family.

A Southern Illinois native, Dr. Kellerman was raised in Pinckneyville, IL. During his youth he enjoyed playing basketball, baseball, and running cross country. He decided during those years that he wanted to become a dentist, after taking note of the personal relationships his own family dentist formed with himself and the other residents in the community.

After graduating from Pinckneyville Community High School, Dr. Kellerman enrolled at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, and graduated with honors with a double major in biology and chemistry. Dr. Kellerman then enrolled at the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine. It was here that Dr. Kellerman learned all of the basic skills it takes to become a well-rounded family dentist. He was one of two school representatives chosen by his peers to attend and represent SIU-School of Dental Medicine at an annual meeting of the nation's dental schools. It was at this conference where dental schools would collaborate and share ideas on how to make positive changes that would enhance the experiences of students and patients to the dental school curriculum. Dr. Kellerman graduated from SIU School of Dental Medicine with his doctorate in 2002, and has been committed to continuing his education ever since. He has been trained, holds membership, and/or is certified or accredited by the following organizations: Invisalign, American Orthodontic Society, Six Months Smiles, PAC-Live Aesthetic Continuum, DOCS-Conscious Sedation, Chen Laser Institute, Midwest Implant Institute, American Academy of Implant Dentistry, Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Association, Madison County Dental Society, and Greater St. Louis Dental Society. He is also a member of the Glen Carbon/Edwardsville Chamber of Commerce.

He currently practices full-time and has lectured on various topics at his alma mater. Dr. Kellerman feels like this gives him an opportunity to give back to the institution that has given him so much. Dr. Kellerman's team members also spend time in local middle schools educating the students about the importance proper oral hygiene plays in their daily lives as well as their overall health. He believes in being philanthropic, and has donated time, money, and services to those less fortunate who may be unable to afford or find appropriate dental care, and various organizations who are fundraising for good causes.

Dr. Kellerman is known for his thoroughness and attention to detail. He also ensures each and every patient knows all options available to them, and let's them choose the option they are most comfortable with. He feels confident that any work provided by Kellerman Dental Care will provide comfort, esthetics, and durability. He is thankful for all of the genuine compliments and feedback he and his team receive on a daily basis and the entire team uses those kind words as motivation to reach higher levels of service and care for their patients.

Dr. Kellerman enjoys spending his spare time with his lovely wife Amanda, and his two sons Oliver and Everett. He also enjoys running marathons, hiking, fishing, reading, traveling, and live music.
