Kenny Connelly, DDS

Meet Dr. Connelly

Dr. Connelly (Kenny) grew up in Peculiar. When he was in the 7th grade his life forever changed. He was always self-conscious about his smile and was never fully confident and that all changed after wearing braces for a few years. Once he finished with braces, he would constantly smile and has not stopped since. Knowing what kind of impact dentistry had on Kenny, he knew that was what his future held.

Given his new passion for dentistry, Kenny attended UMKC Explorer Post programs where he learned how to use handpieces to drill on plastic teeth and make impressions on fellow attendees. He would listen avidly to different speakers from all areas of dentistry, such as, Forensics to Pediatrics.

Kenny attended the University of Missouri – Kansas City where he received a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry before attending UMKC – School of Dentistry.

Following Graduation, Kenny was an Associate in an office located in Leawood, Kansas. Knowing he wanted to have his own practice, Kenny waited until he found the perfect opportunity to follow his dream. Kenny has owned and operated his office in Harrisonville since 2019!

Kenny is now able to provide gentle, comfortable care for the community he was born around. He looks forward to caring for the community and getting to know the person behind their smile. You will always find Kenny in a happy, fun mood (you might even catch him singing).

Kenny and his wife, Tera, are Kansas City natives and enjoy spending time with their son Jaxon and daughter Emery, taking their Labs for walks, and watching the Royals and Chiefs! He also tries to stay active by coaching his son’s baseball team and taking his children to their extracurriculars.
