Kelly is a Columbia native. She is a graduate of the University of Missouri with a BS in Health Sciences and was on the Dean’s list for 7 of her 8 semesters! She is a keyboardist at Christian Fellowship Church and a Youth Group Leader. Kelly became interested in dentistry, particularly in the field of orthodontics when she herself was a patient years ago. “I’ve always loved working with and serving people of all ages and so the opportunity to do that along with being a part of the process to an amazing smile just brings more joy and fun to the job! I was always fascinated by the process of orthodontics growing up in treatment myself. The Robinson + Ries Orthodontics office is so fun and upbeat and has been such an awesome environment to work in!”
