Matthew Kelley, DDS
Originally from Michigan, Dr. Kelley received his DDS degree from the University of Michigan. After dental school, Dr. Kelley went on to continue his dental education at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he attended a 2-year advanced education in general dentistry (AEGD) residency program to pursue advanced training in the treatment of complex dental cases and in the placement and management of dental implants. During his second year of residency, Dr. Kelley attained the prestigious title of “Chief Resident” of the UCLA AEGD program. As Chief Resident, he was responsible for treating the most advanced restorative and implant cases, as well as acting as a mentor to the incoming residents. After residency, Dr. Kelley served as part-time faculty of the UCLA AEGD program and worked in private practice. He also worked part-time in the Los Angeles Veterans Clinic, where he gained valuable experience in treating medically compromised patients.
Dr. Kelley relocated to Seattle in early 2008 with his wife, who is native to Seattle, and has since been enjoying all that the beautiful Pacific Northwest has to offer.
Dr. Kelley dedicates many hours, each year, to increasing his dental knowledge through attending continuing education classes and lectures throughout the country. He feels that it is extremely important to perform dental treatment that is supported by the scientific literature (evidence-based dentistry) and to remain up-to-date with the latest dental technology. He is currently a member of the American Dental Association, the Washington State Dental Association, the Seattle King County Dental Society and the Snohomish County Dental Society.
In his free time, Dr. Kelley is an avid sports fan and enjoys spending time with his two children.
