Dr. Mackenzie “Mac” Kelley
You can call her “Dr. Mac”! She loves creating strong relationships with her patients, has a great sense of humor and is very passionate about helping people feel comfortable while they are in her chair. Dr. Mac was born and raised in Fort Wayne, IN and attended Indiana University School of Dentistry, where she graduated with highest distinction. She was awarded the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Academic Achievement Scholarship and also received the American College of Prosthodontists award, presented to students who demonstrate excellence in crowns, bridges, dentures, and removable partial dentures. So yeah, she’s smart AND cool! And she’s also super strong. Dr. Mac’s hobbies (obsessions) are Crossfit and Olympic weightlifting. She can squat twice her body weight and teach most guys in the gym how to clean & jerk. So you better floss when she tells you to!
Following dental school, Dr. Mac completed her general practice residency at Carolinas Medical Center where she gained further exposure to complex dental procedures such as dental implants, surgical extractions, and difficult restorations. She was also able to provide outstanding care to cancer patients, organ transplant patients and patients with special needs. After residency, she practiced in Pittsburgh, PA for several years before moving with her husband to their dream home: the beautiful mountains of Colorado!
Dr. Mac has a passion for dental implants and is working towards receiving her associate fellowship in implant dentistry. She completed a 300 hour CE “mini-residency” on dental implants through the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, which allows her to provide a unique skillset for patients who are looking for a more permanent and natural way to replace missing teeth.
When Dr. Mac is not working, she enjoys lifting weights at the gym, cooking, traveling and watching Indiana Hoosier basketball. She loves spending time with her family, friends, husband (who happens to be an oral surgeon!) and her cats.
