Beyond the Practice

Dr. Kennedy is a Cincinnati native.  He grew up here, moved away for his education briefly, and then came right back to his hometown.  He has lived in northern Cincinnati with his wife, Susan, and his two daughters since finishing up his dental education.  His daughters have since grown up and moved to Chicago and Nashville where they have started their own families and made Dr. Kennedy a proud grandfather.

Dr. Kennedy is an active individual and keeps himself busy playing hockey and golf.  Dr. Kennedy is happiest when he is out on the water at Norris Lake.  He is a Cincinnati sports fan and can be found regularly at Miami Hockey games where he holds season tickets.  You may even find him wearing "volunteer orange" and rooting for Tennessee.  Dr. Kennedy enjoys spending time with his kids, grandkids, and his two dogs.
