Great place to get your teeth. Everyone who works their is super nice and make you feel calm and welcome. I had a ton of cavities filled there and they made the entire experience feel so much better than any other place. They always ask you if you’re okay and make sure you’re comfortable. The BEST dental office in Baldwin County in my opinion. It could be because I have never been to any other dentist but I love this place!

Just started with this office a few months ago and I have been extremely pleased with their dental services. Everyone that I have interacted with at this office was very professional and pleasant. Dr Kern also took the time to explain what work he was about to do and why it was necessary. It is a very well run office and I would highly recommend.

I had to go in this morning and everybody was so sweet to me even though I had neglected my teeth for a while since I don’t have insurance at this time. The doctor and Vanessa and the front staff were just interested in me not hurting. And I so very much appreciate that!

GINNY A. from Loxley, AL (Source: Yelp)


I love their handheld X-ray. It’s less obtrusive and minimal radiation. I love new technology, particularly in science / medical fields. All staff are cordial. I appreciate professional staff who explain what they are going to do before they do it. Great experience. People who dread going to the dentist, have never been HERE!

Very friendly, and it it not rushed….. The front desk, the hygienists, and the dentist make routine teeth maintenance pleasant. This sounds weird, but they make dentistry not a dreaded event anymore. For those folks who are “hesitant” about routine dental work or already have know issues, do not procrastinate anymore. It doesn’t need to hurt any longer. for those of you, like me, who have been “too busy”, make time and make an appointment. Being new to the area, I feel fortunate to have this dental practice available.

The staff at Azalea City Dental are fantastic! As someone who doesn’t like going to the dentist it really helps that they make you feel so comfortable and really care about their patients! I called this morning in extreme pain and they had me in without an appointment in under 20 mins!

Our 1st visit at Azalea City was Great. Bridget our hygienist was Fabulous, Dr Kern was a super nice guy and the front staff Angie and Rose were super sweet. Before I left I booked my husband and my other daughter an appt. The office was extremely clean and a fresh feeling the moment we walked in. So happy to have found a Great place for my family!

First visit was excellent! All were friendly and professional. Hygienist was knowledgeable and thorough. The dentist took time to address my concerns, and we easily developed a plan of care that worked within my insurance coverage and budget needs. Scheduling my future appointments was easy, and I’ll finally be able to fix problems with previous dental work (from elsewhere). Cost is very reasonable. Highly recommend!

I couldn’t figure out how to write another review, but YOU GUYSSSS! This is the BEST dentist I have ever visited. Patti is a literal angel and deserves all the good things. I’m writing this still numb and shocked at how much they really care about patient comfort. Patti makes me want to get cavities just so she can take care of me. Vanessa came and checked on me, just good lord… I’m impressed. I highly recommend this place. And Dr Kern made me feel so comfortable and made sure I felt nothing. Can not say enough good things about them. Vanessa was fantastic! Dr. Kern was very friendly and is very in tune with patient comfort. Can not wait to return.

Dr. Kern and his team strive to provide excellent service. They go above and beyond. I have been a patient of Dr. Kern since I was 19 years old. That is over 18 years. When he moved his practice to the Spanish Fort, AL area exclusively from Mobile, AL, I followed. Yes, I drive from Mobile to Spanish Fort to see my dentist. If you are needing dental care, I highly recommend you see the Azalea City Dental Team who make you feel more like a friend than a patient

We were really dissatisfied with our previous dentist in Spanish Fort so we switched to Azalea City Dental. Best decision we ever made. For the first time in two years, we had a REAL cleaning. No “insurance” pressure to sign up for at this dental office. No exorbitant PPE CHARGE as with the other office , $25 each, which turned out to be charged to us but not for some other patients. We liked to be valued and appreciated, and at Azalea City Dental, we do!

Today was our first visit with Azalea City Dental. We felt welcome and comfortable from the minute we walked in. Bridgett cleaned our teeth and did a great job. She was so patient with me and my girls! Dr. Kern was really nice and easy to talk to. They both explained everything and made sure we didn’t have any questions. We are so happy we choose to go see them. We will definitely be back.

I had a great experience from the time I walked in the door to the time I left. Everyone there is so nice and helpful. It had been a long time since I had been to the dentist, and I was very anxious about my appointment. My dental hygienist Tresa, really put me at ease. She answered all my questions and cleaned my teeth with no pain at all! I met Dr. Kern,who was very nice and let me know that everything was okay with my teeth and I had no cavities. The receptionist is super sweet as well. They just have a really great team there! I am so glad I found them!

First time going to this dentist for an annual cleaning and I would definitely recommend. The staff was extremely friendly and even got to me early. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the staff was using proper PPE. The dental hygienist explained everything very thoroughly and I am excited to continue to use them

I have made several visits here in the last 3 years! I have had numerous procedures done here, several old amalgam fillings repaired with crowns, and some composite fillings repaired and cleanings.. The staff is always nice, courteous, friendly and has always went above the standard to make me comfortable! Rose does an amazing job in the front and is always friendly, nice and very helpful when I have had questions… All of the Dr’s and Hygienist here are wonderful and do amazing work!!

I’ve been to 4 different dentist offices in the past month. Dr. Kern was the only one who answered all of my questions & pointed me in the right direction. Definitely the best dentist I have seen as an adult, very knowledgeable helps you understand everything he says. The assistant and front desk staff were all very polite and patience with me.

Wife and I were looking for a new dentist. Checked reviews online and decided to try Azalea City. We both needed a cleaning and I needed xrays. Wife and I had a great experience! Everyone was friendly and professional. Turns out that 1 of the dentists lives in my community. We will be going back in 6 months. Could not be more pleased with the everything at Azalea City Dental! Wife and I just had another 6 month checkup. As much as we dislike going to the dentist, going to Azalea City Dental has always been a pleasant experience. We just the love the entire crew, hygenists, and Dr Kearn. They treat us like family and take goodcare of us. We strongly recommend ACD to anyone looking for a dentist!

From the lobby to the exam room, the staff is friendly and professional, and all went out of their way to make me and my daughter, who is 3 years old, feel welcome and comfortable. Dr. Kern is knowledgeable and explains his findings with easy to understand terminology. Dr. Lovell and Susan were excellent with my 3-year-old’s FIRST DENTIST APPOINTMENT and left her begging to comeback again. The location is excellent, even if I-10/bayway is congested, as the alternative route via 90/98 is quicker. This is an exceptional dental office that welcomes and treats your entire family’s dental needs. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

Form the time you check in with the front office team until you finish with the doctor, Azalea City Dental is first class! The entire staff is very professional and they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Cheryl is awesome as a my hygienist as she always has a smile and continually asks how I am doing during the visit. Dr Kern is thorough and offers up options for any issues I have had in my dental history. I would highly recommend Azalea City dental.

Tayler F. from North Central Pensacola, Pensacola, FL (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist I have ever been to! They will make you want to come back any chance you can get! Everyone is super nice, and Dr. Kern will keep you laughing the entire time! I’ve always had bad dental anxiety, but they pretty much cured me of that! They work with you and go out of their way to make you comfortable.

Such an amazing doctor and staff! I tend to get a bit of anxiety when it comes to the dentist, but everyone here was so nice and talked to me the whole time. I didn’t just feel like a number. It made my dental experience the best yet! 10/10 would definitely recommend!

Having just relocated from the East coast we needed to find a quality dental office. Azalea City Dental was a great find! Vanessa our hygienist was so welcoming, professional & did an excellent job cleaning our teeth. Her technique was painless & very thorough. We met with both dentists afterwards & were equally pleased.

Since I am a person with a few bad experiences with dentists I made my appointment with Dr. Kern filled with anxiety. For others of you with the same anxiety as I had let me assure you…..MY VISITS HAVE BEEN SO POSITIVE. He and his staff are thorough, professional and caring. I can’t say enough good things about these folks.

Cori V. from Spanish Fort, AL (Source: Yelp)


Great staff all around. We have recently moved to the area and needed a new dentist. The front desk ladies (especially Rose) are great. They have helped get my entire family into the dentist. We have had to change appointments a couple of times due to family schedule changes. They accommodated with no issues or long waits. Whenever we go, we never wait more 15 minuets before being seen. The waiting are is clean and inviting with cold water and keurig for coffee. The entire staff is great and friendly (dentist and hygienists). The entire place is clean and updated with a modern feel.

First visit. Had a crown problem over the weekend and couldn’t get a call back from my regular dentist. Azalea City was able to work me in Monday before my dentist could even return my call. The office was very nice and modern. Staff was all very friendly and informative. I was able to squeeze in my annual checkup and cleaning while I was there which saved me followup time. Dr. Kern was very friendly and explained things well. They were able to salvage my existing crown to save me some money. The hygienist was very thorough without being heavy-handed. A really great experience overall. I’m happy to say they’re my new dentist going forward.

This high-energy, fun-loving team works so well together! I was so upset after I chipped my front tooth that I hesitated to share my smile. I have to tell you that Dr. Kern and Jamie worked their magic with detail and perfectionism, and my smile has never looked better. I’m so grateful for the kind and sensitive treatment I received from everyone in the office. Thank you for restoring my confidence—you’re truly the BEST!!!

Bridgette always is so friendly and does an excellent job of cleaning my teeth. The two ladies in the front (Angie and I can’t remember the other name) are very welcoming and do a great job. Friendly dentists, as well. Love this office and would highly recommend.

The best dental practice on the Eastern Shore! The dentists are great, the hygienists even better. Tech savvy with several text appointment reminders and their rates are super reasonable. The view of the walled garden from your chair is so peaceful. And they have TV’s on the ceiling to watch while you’re getting your teeth cleaned

Adriane Green (Source: Google)


My first visit to Azalea City Dental was wonderful! The hygienist explained everything she was going to do in detail, along with the rationale for each step in the initial visit process. She was gentle and efficient. Dr. Kern was extremely nice and approachable with questions and concerns. I loved the attention to detail that they showed me. I look forward to recommending them to my friends!

Best dentist office around. Everyone is kind, respectful, welcoming, and overall great people. The Hygienists are all great, and Dr. Kern is the best around. Makes sure you’re comfortable and pain free. Highly recommend this group to anyone. You will not find a better group of people. Been seeing Dr. Kern since for about 10 or more years.

My husband and I struggled to find a new dentist after moving to the Eastern Shore during the height of covid. We both have gone to the same dentist since we were kids and I have to say my experience at Azalea City Dental was amazing. Everyone was very friendly, they were very thorough and talked me through each step they were doing. Highly recommend!

I had a crown replacement done and I absolutely love my results. The color is a perfect match and it looks so natural. Also, I like to add how wonderfully my dentist novocaine injections were and I could not feel and discomfort or pain. Thank you Azalea City Dental. Sincerely,

Just had an incredible first experience here. Every single person I saw was so kind and personable, from the front desk person to my hygienist to Dr. Kern. They’re such nice people and my teeth were cleaned very thoroughly. My hygienist was very knowledgeable beyond what I would have expected as was Dr. Kern. 10/10 would recommend!

Wow, where do I begin!! Tuesday night the most unbelievable pain I’ve ever experienced was the start of my root canal journey. Wednesday morning Dr. Kern numbed my tooth as well as that afternoon after the anesthesia wore off. Later that night, again, the numbing effect eased and horrific pain followed. After placing a call to after hours service, Dr. Kern promptly called back and asked me to meet him at his office to readminister pain medication, AT 10:00pm!! The following morning, today, again getting treatment allowing the antibiotic to work, Ms. Rose in the office called and got me scheduled immediately with Dr. Dean Rogers. Unbelievable!! I am so thankful to all who helped. You are the ones who help make the world go round. I’m now at work being productive and would not be without your help.
