The 45 minute drive from Charlotte to Kelly Family Dentistry in Gastonia is the only unpleasant part of my family's trip to the dentist; it's worth it to be seen by some of the best professionals in the business. I began seeing Dr. Jim (James) Kelly when his father, Dr. Bill Kelly retired. Like his father, Dr. Jim Kelly possesses the same gentle and patient demeanor. He seems to know the most up to date information on current dental procedures and protocol. As toddlers, my sons began seeing Dr. Jim's wife, Dr. Alice Ann Kelly. She is equally as gentle and knowledgeable and so good with the kids! My boys never understood why someone could dislike a visit to the dentist; at Kelly Family Dentistry, they have always been treated like family, from the time they walk in the door, never having to wait more than a few minutes to be called back where they were able to watch cartoons and given prizes from the treasure box when finished. The wonderful hygienists, Cindy and Tia, remember even minute details since our last visits. The entire staff from the front desk to the back office treats my entire family as they would their own. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kelly Family Dentistry to anyone looking for a professional, knowledgeable, friendly dental experience.
