Kelli is a graduate of the University of Tennessee Allied Health Sciences. She’s been working in dentistry since 1995 and has been a valued member of our team since 2003. As a member of our talented team of hygienists, Kelli is tasked with diagnosing/treating periodontal (gum) disease, performing regular cleanings, taking x-rays, educating patients, and ordering supplies. She loves her work because of the conversations she has with patients, teaching people about dental hygiene, and helping people overcome dental phobias. Kelli decided to become a dental hygienist when she was just a kid. She loved going to see her hygienist, and she recommended Kelli give it a try. Kelli tries to get her patients to see the critical connection between oral and overall health. Kelli is dependable, punctual, friendly, caring, and organized. In her free time, Kelli enjoys gardening, spending time with her nieces, riding her bike at Shelby Farms, and hiking.
