In August 2019, EO Austin member Dr. Max Kerr was the recipient of the Patsy Woods Martin BIG Giver Award in Austin, Texas. He was nominated for his considerable commitment to giving back to the community through dentistry as well as his generous support for the Capital Area Dental Foundation. Dr. Kerr is well-known for donating his talents to give free dental care to uninsured or low-income people.
Dr. Kerr’s commitment to giving back goes way back. After receiving his general dentistry degree in 2007, he spent five years providing dental care for underserved children in Texas and New Mexico.
In May 2013, he opened his own dental practice, Vista Ridge Family Dentistry. Today, Dr. Kerr also runs a dental sleep medicine clinic called Sleep Better Austin. He remains committed to treating his patients to the highest standards, helping them live long and productive lives.
“Helping has always been in my DNA, but I recently have become more aware of my ability to leverage my influence as an entrepreneur and make larger more impactful positive change,” Dr. Kerr says.
