Dr. David Kelly, D.D.S.
Kelly Dental Care
3275 West Ina Rd, TucsonSummary/services offered:
We’re excited to announce the opening of Kelly Dental. We strive to create a new paradigm in dentistry, by empowering patients to appreciate the natural beauty and functionality of their teeth. Even if you’ve had oral health challenges in the past, we want you to love and value your teeth for their amazing function and design, the role they have in aesthetics and self-image and their role in overall health and well-being.
What drew you to this profession?
I was drawn to dentistry because I saw the direct impact that it could have in improving lives. I was raised (in Idaho) with the value of service, and through dentistry I felt that I could express my capacity to care for others, resolve problems and make an impact on their health in important and lasting ways.
How does your work differ from others in your profession?
Dentistry is becoming increasingly more corporate and competitive, and sometimes along with that, patients are rushed through the system for more production and profits. After more than 25 years of experience, part of that working as an associate, I feel passionate about creating a space where I can ensure the quality of patient care and help them navigate through their concerns in order to make the best and most informed decisions for themselves.
What should someone expect from working with you?
I believe that it’s important to have respect for the natural tooth structure and to thoughtfully determine when treatment is necessary. It’s also important to use the most progressive techniques and methods available. I follow the advanced concepts of adhesive dentistry, as developed by Dr. Bertolotti, for achieving better bond strengths and better outcomes.
What changes do you plan in 2022?
We’re excited to be able to create a beautiful space that encompasses our values, education, progress, innovation and patient advocacy, in order to create a better dental world.
What is most important for Natural Awakenings’ readers to know?
We’re continually learning more about the amazing ways that teeth function and how they can be repaired and regenerated. It is most important to know that dental care elevates our lives. See ad, page 9.
