Chris Kelson DMD, MS

Creating a healthy, beautiful, and personalized smile for my patients is extremely fulfilling. I love coming into the office each day, getting to know new patients and catching up with our regular patients. My commitment to my patients is to give them the healthy beautiful smile they want in a way that will last them a lifetime.

People are fun, and being able to provide something that has such a positive and often dramatic effect on their lives is extremely rewarding. I love to see that fresh, excited smile when someone who we've served and cared for sees their new smile. They are elated, and we are excited with them. It truly is a great moment.

Education and Experience

I attended Boston University, earning my Doctorate of Dental Medicine and completing my orthodontic training. I was ranked first in my class, graduating Summa Cum Laude. I continued on to complete my Master of Science degree in Dentistry.

Ongoing education is extremely important to stay at the forefront of orthodontic techniques and principles and to allow for comfortable and rapid treatment for my patients. I am trained in Osteogenically Accelerated Orthodontics, which allows treatment to be successfully completed three to four times more quickly in a healthy and complete manner.

As a second generation orthodontist, I have the honor and benefit of learning from my father's 35 years of experience. This has allowed me to take the most current concepts and integrate them with the knowledge that comes from 35 years of real world experience, and that combination gives our patients the best possible care.

Outside the Practice

I am a Boise native and live here with my wonderful family. My sweetheart, Carlee, and I have a great time experiencing life with our five children, two beautiful girls and three rambunctious boys. Life is never dull! There are so many fantastic things to do in this area, and I enjoy all of them. Skiing, dirt biking, mountain biking, wakeboarding, and most recently gardening are just a few of my interests. I'm also addicted to watching the garden grow!
