Meet Dr. Kelley

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.

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.

Also 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. Only a small percentage of practicing orthodontists have completed this certification.

In addition, Dr. Kelley is active in many dental organizations. He is currently the Vice President of the South Carolina Association of Orthodontists, a past orthodontic advisor to the Carolina Dental Forum, and he is the former President of the Georgia Orthodontists Foundation.

Lastly, when heʼs 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. Dr. Kelley is an avid golfer, triathlete, and he is an active member of St. Michaelʼs Church.
