I went on a long journey with Dr. Kennedy to end up with a necessary brand new smile. She is a perfectionist, very meticulous and her dental work shows it. As the months went by, I never got anxious because I knew each appointment would have another awesome outcome. She is the best. With the cosmetic work also came other necessary procedures.  She never rushes, is always pleasant and so easy to talk to. I felt right at home each time I walked through the door. Her staff is welcoming and just as pleasant as she is. I could write on and on but will stop. She has definitely found her calling in the dental profession.  This is the first review I have ever written. I want everyone to have the opportunity to get the care she provides. You need look no further.
