Mark Kennedy’s career as a Dental Ceramist began in the late 70’s as owner of Alpine Dental Lab in Portland, Oregon. He then merged with Vulcan Laboratory in 1991, focusing on all ceramic restorative work and specializing in Anteriors, Implants, Feldspathic Foil Veneers and Empress Aesthetics.
In 2003 Mark relocated to beautiful Sunriver, Oregon where the inception of Kennedy Dental Arts began. Following 40 years of dedication, Mark’s strategic focus in cosmetic dentistry has evolved into his passion. Mark has designed and produced beautiful, natural looking restorations, from smile design to full mouth reconstruction.
Kennedy Dental Arts specializes in implants, all ceramic and high end cosmetic dentistry. Mark has had the privilege of studying and collaborating with some of the world’s leading Ceramists including but not limited to: Matt Roberts, Trevor Laingchild, Don Cornell, Peter Pizzi, Christian Coachman, Lee Culp, Oliver Bricks and others.
Marks dream to relocate to Sunriver was driven by his passion for the outdoors. Due to his ability to service his accounts remotely, he has been able to enjoy an extraordinary quality of life and fulfill his lifelong dreams while doing the work he loves. When Mark’s away from the lab, you can either find him drowning flies in the Deschutes River, climbing rough terrain on his mountain bike, carving turns on Mt. Bachelor or in the forest on horseback out his own back yard. Mark is blessed to live in his “little slice of heaven” enjoying all of this with his wife and Operations Officer, Eileen.
