Dr. Kuennemeier continually educated himself and his staff on the newest techniques and approaches of state-of-the-art, comfortable and personalized dental care. He completed numerous continuing education courses in endodontics, cosmetic dentistry, practice management and implants. He was also a member of the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association and the Cincinnati Dental Society.

Dr. Kuennemeier retired in Febuary 2021 after 39 years with the practice. In his retirement, he is enjoying traveling with his wife, Robyn, spending time with children and grandchildren, riding his bike and visits to his house in Florida.
