Meet The Doctor
Oral Surgeon Paul J. Kelly, DMD, MS
Doctor Kelly thinks he has the best job in the world.
“I get to help people look and feel their best,” he says. “What could be more rewarding than that?
“I want my patients to feel comfortable, whether they’re getting something essential done like having their wisdom teeth removed or they’re just trying to improve or rebuild their smiles and confidence with dental implants. They know they can reach me anytime they need to.”
Making oral surgery more personal is the reason Dr. Kelly has been Phoenix Magazine’s top vote-getter—twice—in the oral and maxillofacial surgery category, among all surgeons in Arizona, and listed eight years straight on this prestigious list.
Dr. Kelly is board certified through the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and is a diplomate of the National Board of Anesthesiology. He has authored numerous articles on dental implants and was recently named a reviewer for the Journal of Prosthodontics.
After graduating magna cum laude from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, Dr. Kelly completed his residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Gundersen-Lutheran Medical Center, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine, La Crosse.
Today he lives in Gilbert with his wife, Kara, and their four children. He credits his family for being a constant reminder to “prioritize life and maintain perspective.”
