Mt Pleasant Orthodontist Celebrates National Orthodontic Health Month

We just love when October comes around.  Not only are we getting excited about the cooler weather AND Dr. Kelley's Birthday... but we also get to celebrate National Orthodontic Health Month!  During October, orthodontists all over the country work together to promote their services and inform the community about the important work we do.

National Orthodontic Health Month is an awareness campaign created cooperatively by orthodontists and other dental health professionals. During this month, we make a special effort to promote dental health and orthodontic health in particular.

Dr. Kelley's staff in Mt. Pleasant, SC want to share some of our favorite orthodontic tips and tricks with you!

  • To prevent delays in treatment wear your rubber bands as instructed by your orthodontist.  Remember, the less you wear them the longer you will have to wear them.  This may prolong your treatment time.
  • Soaking your retainers or clear aligners in peroxide for a few minutes once a week will keep them looking like new.

What can we expect the first day after getting braces?

We know that getting braces is an exciting time, but there is also a certain amount of uncertainty about what to expect. First, you should know that actually putting on the braces does not hurt one bit. In fact, we usually tell our patients to go enjoy lunch after we place the brackets because your teeth will not be sore until later that night.  We also recommend that our patients return to work or school after getting braces! Sorry, kids :)

Dr. Kelley – Board Certified

Excellent Care for a Lifetime


Dr. Kelley has completed the rigorous studying and examinations required to become certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the American Dental Association 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 was required to complete a written examination, present patient cases for expert review, and complete an oral examination to evaluate diagnosis, treatment planning, and finished treatment ability.  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 demonstrated a desire to be held to the highest clinical standards.  Periodically, Dr. Kelley must take recertification examinations to maintain his Board Certification.

Board Certification is a lifelong commitment - a commitment to continuing education that provides you with a healthy smile for life.  Embrace Your Smile!
