Understanding the needs of a child is key to treating them effectively, and for Dr. Kevin Kennedy, Jr., that level of understanding is what makes him one of the most trusted dentists in the Clarksville area. After attending Austin Peay State University, he went on to study at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and graduated at the top of his class from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in 2010. Upon graduation, Dr. Kennedy received two years of specialty training in pediatric dentistry before jointing the staff at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis and then returning home to Clarksville. Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Kennedy was recently named one of America’s best young dentists by leading dental lifestyle magazine Incisal Edge as a member of their Top 40 Under 40 Class of 2019 honorees.
Earlier this year, Dr. Kennedy opened a brand new practice, Spring Creek Pediatric Dentistry, located in the developing area of Sango. With an “unapologetically fun” atmosphere and an amazing team of friendly faces, Dr. Kennedy and his practice have served numerous families from all over Clarksville in just a few months, providing traditional comprehensive pediatric dental services as well as offering assistance to infants struggling with breastfeeding through his expertise in performing tongue-tie and lip-tie releases.
Outside of his practice at Spring Creek Pediatric Dentistry, he serves the community in which his family has been rooted for multiple generations through his involvement with various non-profit organizations. He is the current President of the local Eighth District Dental Society and an active member of the Tennessee Dental Association.
As a fellow parent myself, I always enjoy connecting with patients’ parents and giving them practical advice about how to create the building blocks to a healthy smile for their child for a lifetime. - Dr. Kevin Kennedy
