About Us


Dr. Shawn M. Kerby specializes in both adult and youth dental care for the entire family.  He also is an expert in diagnosing and assessing your sleep disorder needs and how to get you help.  Dr. Kerby and his caring staff are here to serve you, your family, and all of your sleep disorder and dental needs. Our goal is to help you achieve live a healthy lifestyle.

Our dental office has been at the same location for almost 30 years providing excellent care and beautiful smiles. In February of 2007 we changed our name to Kerby Family Dental, when Dr. Shawn M. Kerby took over for Dr. Grover Hahn upon his retirement. Dr. Kerby graduated from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry in 2004 and practiced as an associate dentist with Donald Copley, DDS for 2.5 years before moving to West Des Moines. Dr. Kerby was also appointed adjunct faculty in 2005, for the University of Iowa, teaching the dental students at Broadlawns Hospital and continues to do so on Friday afternoons. The staff at Broadlawns Hospital were also in need of a dentist proficient in surgery to aid in removing difficult and impacted teeth in 2008 and Dr. Kerby took a position there as well to help, as needed.

Our office and highly trained staff wish to provide you with dental education, prevention and treatment of dental disease, cosmetic enhancements to improve your smile, and implant dentistry to replace missing teeth or retain dentures. At Kerby Family Dental, we are here to give you the knowledge you need to achieve and maintain a healthy smile no matter what your age or dental history!

Dr. Shawn M. Kerby is dedicated to providing excellent dental care for our entire family of patients. We have dedicated countless hours in continuing education courses to expand our knowledge of dentistry and provide you with the most up to date dentistry available. We have also updated the office by adding computer systems, video displays that have television, intraoral cameras, and new delivery units. We will soon have digital x-ray units drastically reducing the amount of exposure the patient receives during routine dental appointments.

Dr. Kerby has helped me get my life back. I'm now able to get through the day without being constantly tired and void of energy. It's the first time in years that I look forward to getting a good night's sleep!

I am now able to go to work and be productive. Before working with Dr. Kerby, it was hard to get my work done throughout the day because I was so tired. I had my issue diagnosed by Dr. Kerby and we found the right solution.
