Our Board Certified Orthodontist
Originally from Atlanta, Dr. James E. Kelley II moved to Charleston after he married Anne Blakeney of Mt. Pleasant. He attended Wake Forest University, where he graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in biology.
First of all, Dr. Kelley isn’t the first dentist in his family. His father was a pediatric dentist in Atlanta, which played a large role in his desire to open his own practice. His sister is also a general dentist in the Athens area. So after college, Dr. Kelley went on to join his family of dentists. He went to dental school at the Medical College of Georgia, and then he went on to receive a post-graduate degree in orthodontics.
Most noteworthy, as a diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, Dr. Kelley is board certified. This voluntary certification required him to complete additional rigorous exams.
In addition, Dr. Kelley is active in many dental organizations. He also serves as the orthodontic advisor to the Carolina Dental Forum, and he is the outgoing President of the Georgia Orthodontists Foundation.
Lastly, when he’s not at work, Dr. Kelley enjoys spending time with his wife, Anne, and their children, Elizabeth, Harriet, and James. They also have a springer spaniel, Grace Kelley. Dr. Kelley is also an avid golfer, and he is an active member of St. Michael’s Church.
