Escondido holistic dentist, Dr. Jeffry Kerbs, uses laser technology in many of the daily procedures preformed for his patients. His Fotona Laser is able to preform many procedures, including procedures that improve the aesthetics of the face. These include Smoothlase (treating the fine lines and wrinkles in the skin around the mouth and cheeks) and Liplase (plumping and re-sculpting the lips).

Sometimes even the simplest of things seem so difficult to obtain. One of our patients had lived many years disliking a spot on her lip that made her self-conscious and affected the way she interacted with people. Her medical doctor told her “there is nothing we can do.” The doctor didn’t know about our state-of-the-art Fotona Laser treatment which certainly “can do!” … and with immediate results!

These before and after pictures were taken immediately after the procedure and the lip has continued to heal with time. The outcome?… Our patient is extremely happy and pleased with the dramatic results!

Many of the advanced procedures we can do at Dr. Kerbs Office are possible because of our Fotona Er/YAG and Nd/YAG laser.

Our patients are always surprised at how easy and fast the laser procedures are. There is little discomfort after the procedures and minimal healing time.

Escondido TMJ / TMD Therapy with Holistic Dentist Dr. Jeffry Kerbs

Escondido Holistic Dentist, Dr. Jeffry Kerbs, treats unstable bites and temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) with Condylar Centering Orthotic (C2O) Therapy. C2O therapy is a proven and predictable way to stabilize the TMJ joint or jaw joint. We know that there is a direct correlation between the health of the joint and the occlusion (bite, or the way the upper and lower teeth fit together). The key to stabilizing the joint and relaxing the inflamed muscle is to keep the teeth apart and to center the TMJ into its most stable position. If this is not done, the joint will continue to get worse over time.

Signs and symptoms of an unstable bite/joint are one or more of the following:


-Neck / Shoulder Pain

-Facial Muscle Pain and Tension

-Earaches and Pain

-Tooth Wear, Gum Recession

-Unexplained Tooth or Mouth Pain

A benefit to therapy is that more often than not, some of the aforementioned symptoms can be reduced or even eliminated. C2O therapy is not a night guard. It allows Dr. Kerbs, with his specialized training, to make an accurate diagnosis as to what treatment will be necessary for the teeth in order  to get the bite to correlate with the post C2O therapy stable joint position. Dr. Kerbs goal is always to do the least invasive treatment to return the oral system to health.

If you or a loved one experiences any of the above symptoms, call us today and find out how our TMJ therapy can help. 760-746-3663

Escondido Laser Dentist, Dr. Jeffry Kerbs, treats snoring with NightLase® a state of the art laser procedure. NightLase® laser therapy is patient friendly and non-invasive and ultimately increases the quality of the patient’s sleep and their partner’s sleep.

Snoreing and Sleep Apnea Treatment

How well do you sleep? Do you snore?

A lot of people snore during sleep, some occasionally and some constantly. Snoring is not normal and should be treated in order to achieve healthy quantity and quality of sleep. Poor sleep can lead to daytime fatigue, irritability, poor behavior, trouble with relationships and increased health problems. If snoring is so loud that your bed partner can’t sleep, it may be affecting them too!


NightLase® is simple, safe, and effective. NightLase® decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of gentle laser-induced tightening of the oral mucosa. A full course of NightLase® therapy consists of 3 separate therapy sessions over a six week period.


Don’t let snoring continue to affect your and your families life! There is an easy answer… NightLase®!

**If you snore regularly and experience the symptoms above, you may have a condition called sleep apnea. Although it is as widespread as asthma and diabetes, sleep apnea often remains undiagnosed – a “hidden epidemic”.  Escondido dentist, Dr. Jeffry Kerbs treats both snoring and sleep apena**

We are excited to bring our patients an amazing treatment called Smoothlase™. Smoothlase™ Laser Facial Rejuvenation is a new type of non-invasive treatment that uses fractionalized laser technology and the body’s own natural healing process to tighten, lift, and tone wrinkled and loose skin in the cheeks and around the mouth, chin and lips.
