A native of Albuquerque, NM, Kelly graduated from La Cueva High School where she played soccer and later coached. She joined the team at Uptown Dental Associates in 2011 after having earned her degree as a hygienist through the University of New Mexico Dental Hygiene Program. As a dental hygienist, Kelly is also licensed to provide local anesthesia and is one of our accelerated hygienists, meaning that on some days she works with an assistant, allowing her to see more patients than your average hygienist. As a hygienist, she has gained a reputation for exceptional care and a gentle touch. Since joining us, we have seen Kelly get married (to a great guy named Rob) and become a mother to two beautiful children, Avery and Brody. If her hands aren’t in your mouth, you will most likely find her swimming with her family, walking her dog, Luca, or playing at the park with her adorable children. Her family is her greatest joy and accomplishment.
