George J. Kinney, Jr., DDS
“For all my years in practice, my greatest reward has been being able to help others and establishing long term relationships with patients. I look forward to many years of being of service to others by providing conservative, high-quality dental care. My volunteer efforts have been my way of giving back for all I have received through the practice of dentistry.”
