Meet Dr. Kirby
We are excited that Dr. Kellie Kirby joined our practice on September 11th, 2017.
Dr. Kellie Kirby was born and raised in Laguna Beach, California. She attended Princeton University for her undergraduate studies where she graduated with a degree in Politics. After college, Kellie spent two years working as a consultant for Accenture in New York City, before she ultimately decided to move back to her home state and pursue a career in dentistry. She grew up in a dental family and had spent many summers working in her father and uncle’s dental practices. She witnessed how a relationship-based practice positively impacted the health and well-being of its patients.
She enjoys being a part of Uyesugi Dental where similar priorities and goals are highly valued. Kellie attended dental school at the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, where she graduated with honors. She served as the student liaison to the clinical faculty and as the student representative on the alumni board. While at U.O.P., Kellie enjoyed taking part in many of the community outreach opportunities in San Francisco and surrounding areas. She also spent a week in Jamaica providing free dental care to a population in need.
After graduating from dental school, Kellie furthered her dental training with the completion of a general practice residency at West Los Angeles VA Medical Center, an extension of UCLA. While in residency Kellie acquired additional training in periodontics, prosthodontics, endodontics, oral surgery, and other facets of dentistry. Outside of dentistry, Kellie enjoys spending time with her family: her husband and two young children. She continues to stay active, training for triathlons, and doing yoga.
