Dr.Kennedy and his staff are excellent.From the work done to the way I was treated.The doctor is obviously passionate about what he does,You are treated like a PERSON.That is rare these days.When you are hurting that goes a long way.LaToya assisted him in my procedures.She is warm and kind.It is obviously her goal to keep you comfortable.They have the business of dentistry down pat but haven't lost sight of their humanity.I will be sending friends and be a patient as long as they will have me!
Great bedside manner. Excellent experience all around-
This was my first visit and I was very impressed with the assistance I received from the receptionist. I forgot my insurance card. She called my insurer and obtained the necessary info. Dr. Kennedy was pleasant & provided helpful information concerning my treatment plan.
He and staff were efficient in process of the initial consultation and review of my dental health. I appreciate the fact that his family has been practicing for over 40 years here in the community. His manner is gentle and kind. For decades my dentist was less than mile away. I appreciate Dr Kennedy being in my insurance network.
From someone thats fearful of dentists,and has"nt been to one in quite a while,I really have to say he's great !!! As well as the entire staff !! Professional but very personable. An awesome experience !!!
Dr. Ryan's office is very very comfortable! It has a homey, family feel to it. The doctor's bedside manner is fantastic, and he explains everything he will do in detail so you can at least expect what's coming. I highly recommend him if you're looking for more comfort in visiting a dentist.
I had an overall great experience, which says a lot considering that I am terrified of dentist. The staff were extremely nice and I would recommend this dentist to everyone and anyone they are the best.
Doctor Ryan and his staff were professional and friendly. I am a gagger and they were extremeley patient with me.
It was as pleasureable as a visit to the dentist can be. Dr. Kennedy was a complete delight and his staff most kind. My first new dentist in 43 years, a pleasant surprise. I look forward to my next visit.
They were professional and very nice. The office was very clean and they didn't try to sell me services I didn't need. I would recommend them to anyone.
Awesom! Dr. Kennedy is the best!He made me feel at ease right away.He made sure that I understood everything that was being done. Very gentle/understanding with patients. Staff is great! Megan, thanks for the great cleaning!
He was nice, and the experience wasn't bad. I will come again. He just has a lot of taxidermy around the office, which is something I know would upset a few people.
He answered all my questions and explained what should be down in easy to understand language. I really liked him and the office staff.
Megan did my cleaning and she did a great job, was thorough and friendly.
Very respectful staff and dentist, Dr. Kennedy ( son). I really appreciated the home-feeling. Felt like I was made to feel like family. Thank you all!
Liked him! Thanks for the great experience!
Once I was called for service, it was excellent. My complaint is the very long wait time before being called for service. Another thing, At 1:20 pm, I made an effort to contact Dr. Ryan's office via telephone and was informed by a recording that "the office was closed for the day." It stated however, "if you are calling between the hours of 12:30 and 1:30 pm, we are out of the office for lunch."
I think he iis a special young man to put me at ease. All of his staff that I came in contact will was just wonderful. I am very please with the way everything went. Thanks Dr. Kennedy! And I thank God for sending me to you.

I was very impressed! Very friendly staff and Dr. Kennedy is excellent. The receptionist even looked up my insurance for me even though I was unsure which provider I had through work. Wow!!!!!
Very nice and very professional. He likes to clean the first time to get to know you. I liked my last dentist but she didn't take insurance and I had to change. I'm pleased with Dr. Kennedy and his staff.

He was very good but just seemed very young
Very professional, clean, well-equipped facility. I cannot recommend Dr. Kennedy highly enough.
Well the staff was friendly and kind,every thing was done professionaly. It's a small place, not much room for privacy when the Dr. and you talk about your visit. Yet over all the visit was great. I felt he like doing his job and the staff did too. I have a lot going on and he still made me feel welcome and that he could help me adchieve what I want.I really like how he ask me often, if I understood or had any questions. He made me feel welcome, and did more then was expected for the first visit. Well done Mr.Kennedy well done.
