A little bit about Jay Kent, MD

Dr. Kent enjoys TCCA's strong clinical practice of both adult and pediatric anesthesiology. He especially enjoys the challenges of the labor and delivery ward where a little bit of patience and communication significantly improves the experience of the mom-to-be. Dr. Kent is honored to be a part of the Children's Hospital-St. Paul medical team and notes that caring for pre-mature babies and patients through their teen years has provided a career-long learning experience.  Caring for adults is the logical part of that continuum for Dr. Kent. He states that the challenge of gaining the confidence of a patient in stressful situations and being a part of a talented team of care-givers is a very rewarding experience.  

Dr. Kent is a leader outside of the operating room as well. He has served as the Chairman and Medical Director of the United Hospital Anesthesia Department and worked diligently to make the anesthesia care and service of the highest quality.  

Dr. Kent enjoys time outdoors with his wife and three daughters, especially in the Brainerd Lakes Region.
