Bringing Personalized Care and Healthy Smiles Together

Leighton Kennedy, DMD

I found a love for dentistry as a sixth grader at my orthodontist. The impact that my new smile made on my self-esteem was life-changing. This experience led me to work in other dental offices and pursue the biological sciences in my undergraduate education. It turned out general practice dentistry was the perfect marriage of science and art that fulfilled my curiosities and suited my skills. I am an eternal student and am constantly looking to elevate my craft to provide world-class care to my patients. I hope you will find your experience at Dentistry by Design LKN to be exceptional.
