Meet the Dentists
Get to know our amazing team at Gennaoui Ridgen Family Dental. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Dr. Kathleen Rigden and Dr. Danny Gennaoui
Dr. Katie and Dr. Dan met in dental school in Dr. Dan’s home state of Massachusetts. They attended Boston University School of Dental Medicine, where they both graduated with honors. Dr. Katie was also selected for the prestigious National Dental Honors Society. After dental school, both doctors were accepted into the Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program at Lutheran Medical Center in New York City, where they received advanced training in all aspects of dentistry, including oral surgery, root canal treatment, and implant restoration.
After completing their residencies in 2012, they moved to Dr. Katie’s hometown of St. Louis. Excited to be back home and around family, Dr. Katie began working with her father at Rigden Family Dental, a practice Dr. Kenneth Rigden started himself 35 years earlier. Meanwhile, Dr. Dan worked as an associate at a general dentistry practice in Ballwin, MO. After over 9 years of practicing separately, the doctors decided it was time to work together and start a true family practice. Thus, in January 2022 they merged their dental practices to open Gennaoui Rigden Family Dental.
Both Dr. Katie and Dr. Dan stay current with the latest techniques and technology in dentistry by attending many continuing education courses throughout the year. Dr. Dan participates in monthly meetings with the SPEAR National Dental Study Club. Dr. Katie and Dr. Dan are both members of the American Dental Association, the Greater St. Louis Dental Society, and the Missouri Dental Association.
Outside of dentistry, the couple spends most of their free time with their young twins. Their family enjoys spending time outdoors and visiting all of the family-friendly attractions around St. Louis. They also spend time arguing if the twins will be raised as St. Louis or Boston sports fans. Currently, Dr. Dan is winning the debate.
Dr. Kenneth Rigden
Dr. Rigden completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania. He graduated summa cum laude from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry and was selected for the national dental honors society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon. After graduation, Dr. Rigden returned to St. Louis and opened his dental practice in South County.
Dr. Rigden builds long-lasting relationships with his patients and knows each by name. He provides high-quality conservative dentistry for patients of all ages. Dr. Rigden values and regularly participates in continuing education courses to stay on top of new dental techniques. He is a member of the Greater St. Louis Dental Society, the Missouri Dental Association, and the American Dental Association. Dr. Rigden has been named one of the Top Dentists by St. Louis Magazine every year since 2014.
When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Rigden enjoys golfing with his friends, reading the latest best selling book, and spending time with his family.
