Excellent Care for a Lifetime

Dr. Kelley & Dr. Gardner have completed the rigorous studying and examinations required to become certified by the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO). The ABO is the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the ADA and sponsored by the American Association of Orthodontists.

Board Certification is voluntary and is based on the highest standards of orthodontic knowledge and clinical skill. Dr. Kelley and Dr. Gardner completed a written examination and, additionally, presented patient cases for expert review. Afterwards, he completed an oral examination to evaluate diagnosis, treatment planning, and finished treatment ability. In fact, he is among the small percentage of orthodontists in the Charleston area and the United States to earn this degree of recognized excellence within his specialty.

Taking the time and energy to become Board Certified demonstrates a desire to be held to the highest clinical standards in order to do this.  For this reason, Dr. Kelley  and Dr. Gardner must take recertification examinations to maintain Board Certification.

On the whole, becoming a board certified orthodontist is a lifelong commitment. Significantly, a commitment to continuing education that provides you with a healthy smile for life.  Embrace Your Smile!
