“I love getting to know each of my patients and helping them achieve their individual goals and treatment desires. Nothing makes me happier at the end of the day than making a difference in someone’s life. It is particularly rewarding watching an initially nervous and reserved patient transform into an excited, comfortable, and confident patient in our office.”

Dr. Kendra grew up in West Chester, where she graduated from Great Valley High School. For as long as she can remember, she has always known the healthcare field was in her future. Her father’s enthusiasm for dentistry and the changes he made in people’s lives by transforming their smiles led her to pursue the orthodontic field. She is very excited to be practicing with her older brother.

Dr. Kendra finds it very rewarding to be able to help patients of all ages achieve and maintain functional, beautiful smiles. To do this, she has received the education and training patients can feel confident in.

She majored in biology at West Chester University and earned her Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 2008 from Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry. She graduated summa cum laude from dental school and was inducted into the elite Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Society.

Dr. Kendra went on to complete her orthodontic residency at Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry, where she earned a certificate in orthodontics and a Master of Science in oral biology.

Dr. Kendra is committed to continuing education in order to offer her patients the most up-to-date techniques and treatment options so they can achieve amazing results as quickly and comfortably as possible. She is a member of the Schulman Study Group, a prestigious orthodontic study club of top orthodontists in the nation, as well as several professional organizations that provide opportunities for further study:

Dr. Kendra has two children, Colin and Caroline, and a menagerie of pets that include a dog, rabbit, goats, and horses.

When she’s not in the office, Dr. Kendra can be found spending time with her children and family. She also spends a good bit of her free time caring for her animals and out riding her horse, Cleo. Dr. Kendra enjoys skiing and snowboarding, reading, and spending time at the beach as well.
