Sandy
Office Manager

I am the office manager at Kennet Orthodontics. I am responsible for managing the practice, making convenient financial arrangements for our patients, patient consultations, appointment scheduling, and making beautiful smiles! I joined Dr. Kennet when he first opened his practice in Macomb and helped him build it into the best orthodontic office.

I enjoy boating with my family. I have two beautiful grandchildren that I love spending time with.

Nicole
Treatment Coordinator

As a treatment coordinator I am one of the first people you will meet when being welcomed to our practice. I educate families about orthodontic treatment, work with the doctors during the new patient process and recall visits, discuss financial options and answer any questions families might have. I have been at Kennet Orthodontics since 2008 and truly enjoy being a part of creating that perfect smile. I am also in charge of running our St. Clair Shores location. My husband Brian and I have 3 children Kayla, Josh, and Aana as well as 5 grandchildren Christian, Elaina, Jaxson, Lane, and Willow. Do you like bulldogs??? We have 2 French bulldogs, Bob and Marley, as well as an English bulldog Dozer. They all keep us pretty busy in our time off.

Kris
Invisalign Coordinator

In 2007, after a brief hiatus as a stay-at-home mom, I returned to ortho and joined Kennet Orthodontics. With over 20 years’ experience in orthodontics, it is still what I love to do. My three daughters are now grown, and I’ve been happily married for 22 years.

Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of a great team, always staying up to date, and learning the latest innovative techniques and procedures. I assist the doctors during all clinical procedures, from placing braces to delivering Invisalign® aligners. As Lead Assistant, I helped Dr. Kennet develop some of his unique orthodontic devices and procedures, and I also manage our Invisalign® program which has seen more than 1500 patients over the years.

As a parent, I understand the anxiety a patient, and also the parent, may feel when starting treatment. I try to treat every patient with the best care possible, as I would like my own children to receive. My favorite part of working at Kennet Orthodontics is watching the transformation from before to after and helping patients achieve a smile they love!

Marie
Insurance Coordinator

I have been with Kennet Orthodontics since 2008. As the Insurance Coordinator for all the Kennet Orthodontic locations, I assist our patients to maximize the insurance benefits they deserve. I am responsible for verifying and billing your insurance, tracking and chasing their payments, and eventually posting them to credit your account. In my spare time, I like to camp, read, and make jelly.

Joanna
Director Of Smiles Operations

As the Director of Smiles Operations, I am the first person you see and meet when you walk through our doors! My main priority is to welcome new and current patients to our office with a warm and bright smile and help with any questions patients may have.  I am also a part of the marketing team here at the office. I plan the patient events, monthly contests, and decorate for all the fun things we have going on in the office. Marketing and event planning has become my passion!! I absolutely love my job!!! I love seeing the end result of the deband process when the patients walk up to the front desk and I get to see their beautiful smiles gleaming from ear to ear in excitement!  It is a special moment and I am grateful to be a part of this daily!! I am blessed to be a part of Kennet Orthodontics!! I work with an awesome team and I love them all!!

 

When I am not in the office, I am always on the go in mom and wife mode. I love to go shopping especially for deals and bargains, I love crafting, party planning, and anything that has to do with decorating!  I am married to my husband Lucci and we have two handsome sons named Nick and Rocco. We also have a super cute Dachshund mix named Gadget that we love and adore so much!

Krystal
Orthodontic Technician

As a graduate of ROSS Medical in Dental Assisting, I first began my career here at Kennet Orthodontics in 2015. As an Orthodontic Technician, I work chairside with Dr. Kennet and Dr. Oska to perfect our patients’ smiles and make sure you have great care and feel comfortable throughout treatment. As a mom myself, I can fully relate to and understand parents' wants, needs, and concerns for their children during treatment. My top priority is making sure I always maintain great relations with my patients and their parents. The things I enjoy most about working in orthodontics are learning the new technology we regularly implement, as well as watching the patients grow up while seeing their smiles change along the way. You may see me in many offices including Macomb, St. Clair Shores, and Troy.

When I am not at the office, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends, going to church, going to the movies, and cheering for my son on various sports teams. My son's name is Alexander, and we have four cats, Garfield, Sophie, Chloe, and Binx

Breannah
Orthodontic Technician

I graduated with a certificate for Dental Assisting in 2015 and have been working at Kennet Orthodontics as an orthodontic technician since April 2017.  As an orthodontic technician, I perform clinical procedures such as sterilizing instruments and workstations, changing wires, making retainers, and assisting Dr. Kennet with placing brackets for braces. I also assist in completing and managing our lab cases. I love working in a field where I can see the process of transforming teeth into a great smile that the patient loves! I also enjoy working with our great team and continually learning new processes and techniques from them.

 

In my spare time, I enjoy going to concerts, spending time with my family and friends, being on the beach, and hanging out with my chocolate teacup pomeranian, Malibu. I also love spending time with my three siblings.

Kathy
Front Desk

I started at Kennet Orthodontics as a patient and now I've been part of the team since 2015 up at the front desk!!! I really enjoy all our patients and I love getting to know each one of them. It’s amazing to see the changes in each person's smile. I highly recommend Dr. Kennet to be your orthodontist, with our friendly staff it makes for a great atmosphere to be around!

 

My husband, Jason, and I have two beautiful children Austin and Ava. We spend most of our time at sporting events with our children. Our son plays college baseball, and our daughter plays travel soccer and many other sports. It keeps us extremely busy, but I love every minute of it! We enjoy everything about being outdoors and most importantly spending time with family and friends!

Jennifer
Orthodontic Assistant

As an orthodontic clinical assistant, I work closely with Dr. Kennet and Dr. Oska, performing various procedures on patients to make sure they are given the best treatment possible. I have been a clinical dental assistant for more than 10 years. Both of my children have had treatment with Dr. Kennet before I started working here in 2021. I couldn’t ask for a better orthodontist for my children or a better place to work at. We have a great team that I’m glad to be part of. I love my job. It is very rewarding to see the outcome and to put a smile on everyone's face.

I have two children Mackenzie and Blake whom I love spending time with.

Gabby
Orthodontic Assistant

I’ve been an orthodontic assistant at Kennet Orthodontics since August of 2021. As an assistant, I love interacting with patients and watching their confidence grow from a straight smile and a better bite. I am always willing to learn new things and expand my knowledge. I help the doctors with placing wires, brackets, and simple adjustments. Working on patients always brings me joy. I love working with this team, they are like my second family. Please come join!

Outside of work, I love hanging out with my Mini Dinosaur, Hermes, talking to my plants, and hosting game nights with my sister.

Education and Continuing Education

 

Dr. Zvi Kennet earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD) and attended two years of advanced general dentistry education at the prestigious Eastman Dental Center at the University of Rochester, New York.

He practiced as a general dentist for five years before he decided to specialize in orthodontics. Dr. Kennet attended the University of Manitoba, where he earned both his Certificate in Orthodontics and his Master of Science degree, graduating in 1998.

 

Dr. Kennet participates in many continuing education courses and constantly incorporates new treatment techniques and technologies into his practice to achieve high-quality results with an easier, more comfortable experience for his patients.

 

 

Experience

Dr. Kennet was one of the first dentists in North America to use digital X-rays and his research demonstrated the dramatic reduction in radiation to his patients. His groundbreaking research in the use of lasers to prevent tooth decay was published in leading dental journals and was presented to the American Dental Association. He was one of the first orthodontists to introduce digital orthodontics in Michigan and is one of the most experienced Invisalign providers. Dr. Kennet's constant search for new technological breakthroughs can be seen in his state-of-the-art practice today.

Dr. Kennet and his wife, Orly, have a daughter, Romy, who keeps them up-to-date on all the important TV, music, and pop culture events. They also have a dog, Blu, who loves to greet Dr. Kennet when he gets home and helps to keep him in shape. When he has free time, Dr. Kennet enjoys traveling, going to Tiger games, and food—both cooking it and eating it!
