She also worked as an extern at the Tampa Family Health Center providing dental care to the underserved population, as well as volunteered at the Special Smiles program in Massachusetts and Vermont. Dr. Kendall also served as her school’s president of the American Student Dental Association. Her leadership allowed other dental students to have additional educational and philanthropic opportunities in dentistry. She was honored by her peers with the ASDA National Delegate award for her contributions.
Dr. Kendall is a member of the American Dental Association, and the Washington State Dental Association, and an active officer in the Seattle King County Dental Society.
