Kenneally is a UNE Trustee and alumnus as well as the son of a former faculty member and administrator.

Dr. Ryder and faculty members Adepitan Owosho, B.Ch.D., F.A.A.O.M., Tessie Stansbury, D.M.D., and Namita Khandelwal, B.D.S., M.S., worked with Dr. Kenneally to create an outstanding continuing education program to be held in conjunction with the ICD’s Spring Meeting in Portland. This CE program is open to all dentists. Topics include:
  • “Snow and Fire”: Red and White Lesions of the Oral Cavity
  • Hands on Training — Biopsy Techniques & Suturing
