Kerry Carlson, DDS

Dr. Kerry Carlson attended Emporia State University for his undergraduate studies before going to dental school at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he graduated in 1988 with his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. He furthered his education by completing his General Practice Residency at St. Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City.

Dr. Carlson is a member of the American Dental Association. He completes more than 30 hours of continuing education each year, and is dedicated to treating his patients in a caring manner and environment.

Dr. Carlson and his wife Karen purchased Tim Ward Family Dentistry from Dr. Ward in December 2018. “My wife, Karen and I chose Clarksville, Arkansas, because of the beautiful area and since we both grew up in small towns we had been looking forward to getting back to small town values and the close knit environment a community like Clarksville brings . It’s great to be in a community where you can potentially run into someone you know anywhere in town.” Dr. Carlson and his wife, Karen, have 5 children and 3 grandchildren. He enjoys watching all sports, and especially enjoys playing golf. Outside of the office, his activities are centered on spending time with his family and friends.
