KENNEDY FAMHello. I am Dr. Matthew David Kennedy. If you are reading this, you must be curious about the person that you are trusting to take care of your mouth and the mouths of your family. I want to take this opportunity to share with you a very personal story of who I am and what I believe in.I was born in Michigan but spent most of my life in Arizona. My hobbies include watching movies, weight training, and coaching my son’s soccer, basketball, and baseball teams. I am married to my lovely wife Sara, and we have four beautiful children.  I met Sara while attending Apollo High School in Glendale, where she was a cheerleader and I played football. We have been married since 2000. My family is the most important part of my life, and I want you to know that being my patient means being treated like family. My philosophy is simple and timeless: Treat others the way you want to be treated. 

img_dentist02I am the first college graduate in my family, and I am proud to say that I put myself through college, graduating from Arizona State University in 1999 with a B.S. in biology. I then was fortunate enough to attend the prestigious University of California San Francisco Dental School, graduating in 2003. I knew from an early age that I wanted to be a dentist. I had numerous dental problems as a child and had a great dentist who sparked my interest in the field. I enjoy mastering all aspects of dentistry today and take great pride in my work.


img_dentist03My practice here in Verrado allows me the opportunity to produce high-quality dentistry with a truly personal touch. This is a family-owned dental office, and I plan to continue practicing for at least another 25 years. This provides you with a unique chance to be seen by the same dentist for years to come and develop a great relationship. This is unlike today’s trends, wherein large corporations own practices, and patients are seen by different dentists each time they come in.


img_dentist04I also put some extra touches into the office to make my patients more comfortable. They can watch movies while receiving treatment in our massaging chairs. A game room makes kids feel special, too. I want to make myself approachable, so patients can ask questions and be directly involved in their dental health. I am dedicated to raising my family in Verrado, and I hope we can grow together as a community. See you soon!
