In 2011, Dustin made Montreal his home, where he studied business and human relations at Concordia University before obtaining his Doctor of Medical Dentistry from McGill University in 2017. To further his knowledge in dentistry, he pursued a multidisciplinary dental residency program at the Montreal General Hospital in 2018 prior to joining our clinic at Montreal Smiles.
Dustin is a part-time Faculty Lecturer at McGill University, where he enjoys teaching dental students in the clinic. In addition to this, he is collaborating on a website with the Division of Oral Health and Society at McGill Dentistry with the objective of increasing access to quality oral health care in northern, remote, and isolated communities. Dr. Kennedy is continuously staying up to date with new treatments and technology by regularly reading dental research and attending continuing education courses.
Despite all this, Dustin still manages to find free time to do the other things he loves in life! You might find him running and cycling around the city; skiing or hiking in the Eastern Townships; or travelling in distant countries discovering new cultures.
