6 Reasons to Choose Dr. Kearney's Dental Practice


Your Comfort Is Our Priority

Our practice features a friendly staff that has become a family, TVs in every exam room, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.


Advanced Technology

Our practice features the latest advancements in dental technology, including laser dentistry to replace scalpels, low radiation digital X-rays, and 3D cone beam scanning for precise diagnosis and personalized treatment planning.


Training and Experience

Dr. Kearney has three decades of dental procedure training and experience. This means he can expertly perform many complex dental treatments himself, saving you from the hassle and expense of visiting an outside specialist. 


Calming Sedation

If dentists or dental procedures make you anxious or you have physical issues with sitting still for long periods, gentle sedation dentistry can keep you calm and relaxed during simple or complex dental procedures.


Financing Options

Not all dental procedures are covered by insurance. This is very true for cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening. Contact our practice to learn about payment plans that can make out-of-pocket costs much more affordable. We want you to receive the best oral health care possible, regardless of budget concerns.


Vastly Educated

Dr. Kearney has acquired hundreds of hours of intense post–dental school education. This has allowed him to learn the latest techniques for treating TMJ disorder, sleep apnea treatments, orthodontics, and more.

After Treatment
This female patient came to our Cary, NC, dental practice with jagged and uneven front teeth. Dr. Kearney used high-quality porcelain veneers to completely conceal the imperfections in her smile. A customized cosmetic dentistry treatment plan was created just for her, so each veneer matched the size, shade, and color of her existing teeth perfectly. Now she has a bright, even smile that a Hollywood celebrity would envy!

Featured Dental Procedures

Sleep Apnea

Waking at night gasping for air is a telltale sign of sleep apnea. This condition is caused when throat muscles in your upper airway collapse during sleep. Sleep apnea can lead to headaches, snoring, daytime fatigue, mood swings, and heart disease. Dr. Kearney works closely with a local sleep specialist who can administer an at-home sleep test and diagnose sleep apnea (North Carolina requires take-home sleep tests be overseen by a sleep doctor). If sleep apnea is diagnosed, Dr. Kearney can treat mild cases with a customized mouth guard to realign the jaw and keep your airway open.

TMJ Disorder

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) connect your jaws to your skull. These joints, and the muscles, tendons, and nerves around them, help us chew, yawn, talk, and move our jaws from side to side. Inflammation or damage to the TMJs can cause your jaw to lock, as well as headaches, jaw, neck, and facial pain, and popping and clicking in the jaw. Dr. Kearney has 15 years of experience treating TMJ issues with nonsurgical treatments like mouth guards, injections, electrical stimulation, and laser therapy.

Crooked or misaligned teeth can affect the way you look, eat, and speak. Dr. Kearney offers clear plastic Invisalign® aligners to create a straight and healthy smile. This type of orthodontic treatment works by gently shifting your teeth into proper alignment. Patients switch to a new set of custom aligners every two weeks. Many of our patients prefer Invisalign aligners to traditional metal braces because they are more discreet and comfortable. And unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed when you eat and when it is time to brush and floss.

Porcelain Veneers

Even a minor flaw can mar an otherwise stunning smile. Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that have chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and minor misalignment. Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that fit over the front of a tooth, concealing imperfections to create a stunning smile. Your veneers will be custom-designed out of high-quality porcelain that has been color-matched to your smile for a lifelike, natural appearance. Porcelain veneer treatment can be completed in just two visits to our Cary, NC, dental practice.

The Moffitt family of 5 have been going to Dr. Kearney for over 10 years and we wouldn't go anywhere else.  They are professional, knowledgeable, gentle (hardly even feel the numbing shots) and patient (great with little kids and big kids).  Keep up the great work!
