Meet 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 the completion of her 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, Dr. Kelley 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.
