Dr. William C. Kenner, V
Having the opportunity to utilize my expertise and help patients achieve optimum, functional oral health is what drives my passion for dentistry. Our patients have a great appreciation for the care that we provide, and many of them have been with the practice since it was opened by my father in 1978. It is extremely rewarding to see those patients entrust our office with their own care, the care of their children, and their friends and family.
The Field of Dentistry is Constantly Changing
Staying informed of the latest dental treatment techniques is essential to best benefit our patients. Therefore actively seek lectures and courses throughout the year on the ever-developing treatment of dental implants, conscious sedation and anesthesia techniques, and the use of digital technology in diagnosis and treatment planning. I am also an active member in the South Sound Study Club, Premier Study Club, and Nobel Biocare Implant Study Club, along with regular review of current dental literature through research journals such as the Journal of Oral Implantology, International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants, Anesthesia Progress, Implant Dentistry, and the Journal of the American Dental Association.

We strive to provide quality, patient-centered dental care. Our goal is to create a unique dental experience for our patients, where their needs and comfort come first. Each Team member brings their individual element to the office, making everyday entertaining and enjoyable.
For the past four years the Kenner Dental Group has been an event sponsor for the Burien Brat Trot, benefiting Highline Schools Foundation. We have also worked to raise awareness of children’s oral health and provided pediatric dental care in the community.
I am a Burien native born and raised. My wife Dr. Leigh Kenner, who I met in dental school, and I have been married since October 2009. We have two beautiful children, daughter Brynn and son Liam, along with two dogs, Lilly and Cali. Our house is always a bit busy, but when there is time to relax and get away, our family loves outdoor activities together, watching the Seahawks, traveling to see family in San Diego and Palm Springs, and enjoying the beach along Alki. My individual outdoor passion is fresh-water fly fishing, although I’ve been known to throw saltwater flies off Alki Point and Fauntleroy occasionally.
