Gerald Knierim, D.D.S.Gerald Knierim, D.D.S.
Hi, I’m Dr. Knierim. They also call me Dr. K, Jerry and the old guy, since my son, Kevin, joined me.

I have been in private practice since 1977.   I went to Central Catholic High School, the University of Toledo and received my dental degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.  I am a member of the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association, and Toledo Dental Society.Besides working in my private practice, I also treat patients in area nursing homes and I have been on staff for 34 years at the children’s dental clinic at the Toledo Health Department.

I enjoy all sports, especially bowling and golf. After work you can usually find me on my bike on the University Trail.

Lucas County Special Olympics and children and adults with special needs are very dear to me. I am involved in their bowling league, coach one of their little league teams, help with their fundraising and I am also to many of them their dentist.

I do on occasions, Halloween and Mardi Gras, conceal my identity and become the Tooth Fairy.  It is a site for sore eyes but produces alot of laughs, natures best medicine.
