California State University at Long Beach 1979
1983 Graduate of Howard University College of Dentistry
After graduating from Howard University in 1983, Dr. Kelly accepted a position
working with one of his former professors and also worked at the University as an
Academic Reinforcement Instructor. Dr. Kelly realized that this was not the career path
that he wished to follow so he moved back to Los Angeles, California to establish his
practice. While waiting to pass the board examination Dr. Kelly worked at Southern
California Edison Company as a Medical Analyst. This allowed Dr. Kelly to negotiate
health care contracts and it also gave Dr. Kelly the opportunity to conduct health care
seminars for the employees of the company.
Shortly after becoming Board Certified, Dr. Kelly joined Group Practices gaining
invaluable experience in the various dental disciplines. Dr. Kelly eventually opened his
own practice which proved to be a great move, and eventually opened a second satellite
practice in Playa Del Rey, California, in one of Southern California's more affluent
neighborhoods. This practice immediately excelled and became the primary practice
until he moved to North Carolina. The move to North Carolina was spawned by an
offer that would allow him to practice in a more peaceful, intimate life style and
environment for his family while producing $75K to $100K per month while also
allowing him to eventually move into the type of Dentistry he had long envisioned,
Oral Implantology, continuing Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. Due to Dr. Kelly's love
for the science of dentistry, this seemed the ultimate road to travel.
Since arriving in North Carolina Dr. Kelly has served as a Deputy Examiner for the
North Carolina Sate Board of Dental Examiners. Also Dr. Kelly donates several hours
of his time per month to free dental clinics in the Piedmont Triad Area. Dr. Kelly is an
active member of the Forsyth County Dental Society, The American Dental
Association, The North Carolina Dental Society, The Piedmont Society of Advanced
Dental Studies, International Congress of Oral Implantology, Fellowship in the
Academy of General Dentistry and a Fellow of the American Academy of Implant
Dentistry and Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology. Dr. Kelly is an
