The Team

 

Ellen
Ellen – Dental Hygienist
I have been a part of Kennedy Dental Group, LLC since 2016. I am the oldest child in my family and have two sisters. I was born in Kodiak but grew up in Anchorage. I am a graduate of Dimond High School and received my Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene from the University of Alaska Anchorage. Being part of the family that makes up this practice is something I really enjoy. I really value the trust-based relationships that we build with our patients. Those relationships allow me to educate our patients about the treatments they need to achieve optimal oral health.When I’m not in the office, you can find me spending time outdoors, whether its fishing, hiking, skiing or hunting to name a few.

 

Maija

I have worked for Dr. Kennedy for the last five years, providing exceptional care to our patients. I have a Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene, and put it to use each day at Kennedy Dental Group, LLC. With my positive energy, I feel that I am able to help each patient and team member in our office feel comfortable and like a part of our dental family.I often put my positivity and professionalism to work in other ways, as I also work as a flight attendant for Alaska Airlines. When I’m not flying or helping patients at our office, I enjoy spending time with my four-legged fur baby named Cooper. I also enjoy working out and doing yoga. You can often find me exploring and adventuring in Alaska.

I have been in the dental field since 1996 where I started with sterilization and other office duties. I then went on to be trained as a dental assistant working in the same practice for over 20 years. In 2018 I was happy to accept a position with Dr. Kennedy’s great team. I enjoy traveling, camping and fishing with my husband and grown children, but enjoy spending time with my two beautiful granddaughters most of all.

 

Diane

I have worked in the dental field of over 30 years. When my previous dentist retired, I was fortunate enough to land a position with Dr. Kennedy. I thoroughly enjoy working with Dr. Kennedy and our wonderful patients. I am so impressed with Dr. Kennedy’s quality of dentistry and patient care. One of the things I love about our office is that we have a great team that works well together and is focused, with the patient’s best interest at heart. I really enjoy the monthly trip we make to Utqiagvik (Barrow). Despite the cold temperatures; the town, culture and people are truly warm and enjoyable.In my free time, I enjoy cooking, hiking and caring for our horses. I also love getting to spend time with my husband and two adult daughters.
