Dr. David B. Kennedy
Orthodontics Fund

Faculty of Dentistry

Help graduate orthodontics students advocate for patients facing financial challenges for their dental treatment

This fund was established by colleagues, friends and family in recognition of Dr. Kennedy’s passion, commitment, and dedication to dental education and orthodontics.

As the first dental specialist in Canada to attain dual fellowship from the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, Dr. Kennedy has held many leadership positions in organized dentistry. As a UBC Faculty of Dentistry Clinical Professor and co-clinic director Graduate Orthodontics, Dr. Kennedy has made significant contributions to the specialty and was a valued mentor, educator and beloved by all.

The Dr. David B Kennedy Orthodontics Fund provides the opportunity for students in the graduate orthodontics program to advocate for patients who face financial challenges in completing their full and comprehensive dental treatment.

Qualified patients receive the treatment they need at a reduced fee, while students gain the advantage of being able to follow through the full treatment plan for their patients—a true reflection of Dr. Kennedy’s own devotion to patient care and lasting legacy.


FORWARD, the campaign for UBC, is advancing healthy lives, creating solutions for the planet, and shaping thriving societies. Donors and alumni are the catalyst making it happen.
