“Dr. Kear is great! Very friendly and listens to your concerns. All the hygienists that have cleaned my teeth were also very kind and approachable... I'm thankful my cleanings don't feel like they take forever.”
Dr. Kear is devoted to his wife Sue and their three adult children. He and his wife are very involved in their local church as small group Bible study hosts. They share a passion for helping friends learn to faithfully follow God in a way that demonstrates love to others. In his free time, he enjoys gardening, beekeeping, coffee roasting, and coaching soccer.
I *heart* this dental practice! Convenient location, a clean and comfortable office, and a tech-forward approach to patient communication ~ I receive text reminders to my phone prior to appointments, which is so appreciated! Desk staff are friendly and informed, the dental hygienists I've met are all really pleasant and skilled, and Dr. Ferguson is exceptionally perceptive. I cannot recommend Greentree more highly!
Dr. Ferguson is happily married to Jennifer and they have two adopted boys from Ethiopia. As a faith-driven couple, he and his wife lead a home Bible study and regularly travel overseas to help with relief work. He also volunteers his time at a local clinic for people who can’t afford proper dental care.
“The hardest part of retirement is not getting to see my patients and friends. I really loved serving the people of Columbus and especially enjoyed my time with Dr. Kear and Dr. Ferguson over the last few years. I’d also like to congratulate these two amazing doctors on making the Top Dentist in Columbus list in Columbus Monthly magazine.”
