stock-11Dr. Kennedy and his team are committed to incorporating the safest and most effective technology into our practice. Dr. Kennedy stays up-to-date with all advances in dental technology by enrolling in numerous continuing education courses led by industry experts. With state-of-the-art technology, Dr. Kennedy’s patients benefit from faster, more precise results and comfortable, stress-free visits.

Digital Radiographs

We lessen patient exposure to radiation up to 80 percent by using digital X-rays over traditional ones. Digital X-rays are not only safer, but also more efficient. Your images will be shown instantly with great clarity on a nearby computer screen, where you and Dr. Kennedy can analyze your oral health together. The images can be easily manipulated to explore certain areas of your mouth, and electronically sent to a referring dentist, specialist or insurance company.

Massaging Dental Chairs

Modern dental technology is designed to improve more than your smile results — it improves your entire experience at our office and helps you anticipate your next appointment. We use advanced dental equipment and instruments to create an enjoyable and spa-like atmosphere with patient amenities like massaging dental chairs. On their way out of the office, our patients often happily comment on their relaxing time in the dental chair!

Cone Beam CT

cone beamWe won’t settle for standard treatments. That’s why we utilize digital cone beam computed tomography to acquire 3D images of the structures and nerve pathways of your oral cavity. This special X-ray provides incredibly detailed information to give you the most precise diagnoses and treatment planning imaginable. We often use cone beam CT in the process of planning out dental implants; the images allow Dr. Kennedy to evaluate the strength and structure of the jawbone and advise whether it can accommodate implant posts. Cone beam CT is also commonly used in diagnosing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder and surgical planning for impacted teeth.

Dental Laser

Lasers have been approved by the FDA to be used to shape gums, remove tooth decay, kill harmful bacteria and expedite teeth whitening. This laser works by delivering high-precision energy in the form of light to make your treatments free of drills and discomfort. Thanks to laser dentistry, our patients can enjoy treatment without the sounds, smells and stress of a traditional dental laser.

Top Quality Materials

Dental restorations are completely customized to match each patient’s specific tooth color, shape and size for a seamless result. The goal is for these restorations to be virtually indistinguishable from natural, healthy teeth.
