Dr. Kenning

Keri Kenning, DDS, MSD

Dr. Kenning was born and raised in Hutchinson, Kansas, and attended college at the University of Kansas, where she studied biology. From there, she graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska in 2018.

She originally dreamed of going to go into marine biology, but soon found that her love of helping others gave her more opportunity in orthodontics. She loves the idea of helping people achieve their dream smile and feel good about themselves, all while getting to know their families. 

“I am excited to join Blue Ridge Orthodontics for so many reasons — a modern orthodontic practice with all the best technology for patient care, the patient-centered culture at BRO, and the amazing sights and outdoor activities of Asheville — but most of all a fantastic team of staff and doctors. I can’t think of a better group of people to spend my time with!”

– Dr. Keri Kenning

In her free time, she enjoys scuba diving in the Caribbean and exploring America’s national parks. After work, you can find her playing tennis, running, or cheering on the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team. Dr. Kenning is always down to talk about outdoor sports, nature, and marine biology!
