For is education Dr. Kelly completed his undergraduate degree at University of Minnesota Duluth in 2005 and then went on to the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, where he graduated in 2009. Dr. Kelly has made Rochester his home for the past seven years. For fun in his spare time Dr. Kelly likes hunting and fishing, especially fishing. To get Dr. Kelly talking just chat with him about muskie fishing and you will be talking for hours about weather, lures and the position of the moon.

Trisha Office coordinator and Licensed Dental Assistant

I graduated from South Central College in 2008. I Reside in North Mankato with my family and love to explore the surrounding communities. I like to spend my spare time with my husband, Evan and our daughters, Peyton and Piper, who are the perfect combination of dramatic and wild. In my free time you will find us at the park, pool, or on mini adventures...anything to tire the dramatic and wild girls out :) I like to read and write, although Netflix seems to win out most nights! I thoroughly enjoy country music, much to the chagrin of the rest of the office! Visiting Nashville is on my bucket list!
