About Us

At Kelly Dental Arts, patients are assured one on one, personalized dental care. Practice owners, Shawn and Dawn M. Kelly (née Poli), have been a part of the South Jersey dental community since 2003. It is their shared passion to making a difference in the lives of patients that is at the heart of the practice – something that is clear from the first telephone inquiry to each recurring appointment.

Kelly Dental Arts and its practice team are dedicated to being on the forefront of the dental profession with the latest technology and most advanced techniques. Yet, it is highly skilled hands-on care combined with commitment to on-going education and training that sets the practice apart from the rest.
