It is with deep regret and sadness that I have to announce the sad loss of Bernie Kieser who died peacefully in his sleep on 7/9/09. Bernie had fought cancer over the last year and as usual had defied all predictions.

What a bad year for perio. Bernie was great, questioning and challenging everyone and everything. He was a great mind and very humble. At the Cambridge meeting of the BSP 2 years ago Bernie said that when he told people that he was a Periodontist and they asked what that was, he would tell them that he was a Specialist in teaching people how to clean their teeth!

My thoughts go to his family.

Is he the same Dr Kieser who was in the perio dept. at the Eastman in the late 70s? (I think he was South African). If so, I am saddened to hear the news. I worked with him back then, when I was starting out as a Dental Nursing student, I was very green, and he was so nice to me! He was a very energetic and dynamic person.

Thats the one Linda, he will be a sad loss.  He was a man who said what he meant and meant what he said.

What a rubbish start to the year!!  First Graham Smart, now Bernie Keiser of whom both Graham and his partner in crime Phil Ower were disciples.

I remember hearing Bernie speak at a BDA conference many years ago where he was stirring - suggesting that one could raise a flap, polish the calculus below and have a good result at a time when gingival surgery (gingivectomy) was almost a panacea for perio. 

He was against surgery in those days - I don't know if that view was modified later - on the grounds that there was little point trying to reconstruct what had already failed.  He was more of the school that cleaning was everything.  Can't really argue with that myself 8-)

Cheers Bernie - a great periodontist and one of life's characters.
