Kelsey has been a Registered Dental Hygienist since 2008, and part of the Nashville Family Dentistry team since 2010. She enjoys working at Nashville Family Dentistry because she grew up in the area and loves working in a friendly, family-oriented atmosphere, meeting new people, as well as catching up with the ones she's known for years. Kelsey enjoys helping patients change their perception of dentistry, educating them on their oral health while making their appointment as stress-free and comfortable as possible. She aims to care for her patients’ dental health but also build lasting relationships at the same time. Kelsey spends her time outside of work with her husband, Joey and their son, Blake.
