Dr. Chelita Kelley
Brookdale Pediatric Dentistry is a dream come true for Dr. Chelita Kaye Kelley. She has enjoyed practicing pediatric dentistry for almost ten years. Always wanting to start a practice, she finally decided to do so with her former co-worker, Dr. Holt.
Initially, Dr. Kelley was a registered nurse graduating from the University of Delaware’s School of Nursing where she was active in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. In 2001 she received her dental degree from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Because of her love of children, she continued her education with a residency in Pediatric Dentistry at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington DC.
After completion of residency, she remained on staff as full-time faculty for several years. In addition to being certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Kelley has participated in dental research and has published some of her research in national dental journals.
In her spare time, She loves traveling, reading, cooking and spending time at the beach with her husband, Marvin and two sons, Mason and Miles. Dr. Kelley is proud to open Brookdale Pediatric Dentistry and truly appreciates the opportunity to serve your children.
Dr. Michael Holt
Dr. Michael Holt has had a lot of blessings recently in his life. After years as a general dentist, he pursued and completed training in pediatric dentistry. He and his wife, Dr. Sheila Gordon-Holt have two children, Taylor and Nolan. He has had the opportunity to practice in a lot of different dental practices in this great state of ours and recently has decided to start his own practice alongside Dr. Kelley.
Dr. Holt completed his residency in pediatric dentistry at the University of Florida in the summer of 2010. Nine years before that he received his dental degree from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!). He spent his four years of undergraduate study at Hampton University in Virginia. “It seems I only leave this area to go to school.” Dr. Holt originally moved to Charlotte when he was in the fifth grade and is a product of the CMS school system.
For fun and when not on “daddy duty,” he loves his movie marathons and is an avid basketball and football fan. He is thankful for the opportunities life has granted. He would really be thankful to have your children as patients of Brookdale Pediatric Dentistry.
