Dr. Gerard says he decided to pursue a career in dentistry because he loves working with his hands and interacting with people of all ages. He loves the variety of procedures, the technology and the continual education that enables him to better serve his patients.

After obtaining his undergraduate degree from Idaho State University, Dr. Gerard pursued his dental degree from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, where he excelled in the clinic and received awards in the areas of implant dentistry and cosmetics. Since graduating and beginning to practice at our Meridian dentistry, he has attended continuing education courses in the areas of implant dentistry and sleep apnea/snoring. Of his decision to practice in Idaho, he says, “I was born and raised in Idaho and I knew I wanted to come back to Idaho. I love the mountains and the outdoors!”


Dr. Gerard feels that dentistry can provide life-changing results for patients. “I love doing implant dentistry and sleep related dentistry because it provides such an amazing positive change for my patients. I can literally give them their life back!” Dr. Gerard’s ideal patient is concerned about their total body health and getting the treatment they need.


On his days away from the practice, Dr. Gerard enjoys riding off-road motorcycles and camping and hiking with his wife Kayleen and their five children.
