Alicia Kennedy’s La Jolla dental office is just like home

One of La Jolla’s premiere general and cosmetic dentistry practioners, Dr. Alicia Kennedy promises to brighten smiles and uplift spirits.

“It’s incredible how you can change a person’s self-esteem if they can have better smiles,” said Kennedy, a 30-year veteran in the medical field who’s practiced restorative and aesthetic dentistry for 13 years in La Jolla at 7334 Girard Ave., Suite 101.

In her practice, Kennedy performs a number of advanced medical procedures including full-mouth reconstruction. She also takes pride in being able to handle patients who are “dentalphobic.”

“I provide different medications, sedation, sleep anesthesia,” she said. “I can always provide a certified anesthesiologist to put patients to sleep like a hospital environment.”

Kennedy also provides patients with a nurturing environment.

“I have a very boutique practice with a homey atmosphere that’s very warm,” she said, noting she provides massage-like chairs in her patient treatment rooms replete with music and headphones, and even incense, to engage all of a patient’s senses.

She added a trip to her dental office is “a special experience.”

Kennedy is a native of Poland who got her degree from UCLA and worked for many years in Orange County before coming to La Jolla.

She is active in numerous dental organizations including the American Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry and the Pacific Coast Society for Prosthodontics.

She was educated by Frank Spear in Seattle, one of the world’s finest restorative dentists. She teaches Spear education courses at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry in Arizona.

Prevention is high on Kennedy’s to-do list for patients.

“You should have cleaning appointments every three months,” she said. “I teach people how to brush, give them medications to prevent cavities. Gum disease is the No. 1 problem. I have a periodontist (gum specialist)  come into my office once a week.”

Hours at Kennedy’s office are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
