My name is Dr. Jason Kennedy and I am pleased to welcome you to Southeast Oral Surgery where you will receive a combination of superior patient care and innovative procedures, which have earned the Southeast Oral Surgery practice a reputation of excellence in the field in the state of Tennessee.

I am so pleased to be a member of this contemporary team of surgeons and to call East TN my home. I am happily married and have two children. My journey into oral surgery began at the University of Louisville, where I received a Doctorate of Dental Education. I received the Oral Surgery Excellence Award from the Louisville School of Dentistry. During this time, I traveled to the Dominican Republic three times with the Christian Medical and Dental Association to provide oral health care for underprivileged native citizens. I also provided health care for inner city indigent residents in Louisville, Kentucky through Touched Twice Ministries.

I consider myself extremely lucky to have completed residency at the University of Tennessee, one of the premier Oral Maxillofacial teaching hospitals in the United States. I am qualified as an Advanced Trauma Life Support Instructor. I am certified in American Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Pediatric Life Support, (PALS) and Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS). While in residency, I was involved in cutting edge research with PET/CT Technology and presented research findings at the National Meeting of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons in San Diego, California.
 
My professional interests include oral rehabilitation with dental implants, maxillofacial trauma, and head and neck pathology. When not working, I can be found spending time with my family, traveling, watching and playing baseball and participating in mission work.
