Meet the Doctors

Dr. Nathan Kennedy

Dr. Nathan Kennedy, Principle Dentist

Dr. Kennedy graduated from the University of Toronto in 2004. After returning home to BC, he began working as an associate in his father’s dental practice in Vancouver. After spending several years in his father’s practice, Dr. Kennedy felt he was ready to step out on his own, and he opened up Smile Solutions Dental Centre in October 2008. Since then Dr. Kennedy’s practice has been successfully growing – mostly due to his focus on quality care as well as his trustworthy and easy-going nature … and of course his fantastic staff!

When he’s not wrapped up in the details of managing the practice, Dr. Kennedy spends his time at home with his family. He and his wife Emily have been blessed with four daughters, which makes for a very affectionate, but sometimes dramatic household. Though he has his hands full both at the office and at home, he is able to find time to serve on the board of White Rock Christian Academy, and to get involved in the local church. He has played the bass guitar in the church band at Calvary Worship Centre for many years, and attends Village Church regularly with his family. If he has any spare time after all that, Dr. Kennedy’s favorite ways to relax by unwinding with a good video game, or cheering on the Canucks!

Dr. Hermesmann was hired as an associate dentist in April of 2011 to meet the needs of an expanding practice.

A native of Vancouver and a graduate of UBC, some of her favorite past-times are gardening, cooking, painting and playing the piano. She likes to spend her free time with her husband and her family (she comes from a large family), or exercising (her favorite sports are running, swimming and skiing), or taking care of her two pet cats. Another interesting fact about Dr. Hermesmann is that she can speak fluent German!
