Dr. Kellam has a lot more hair when he graduated from Cibola High School in Albuquerque. He then attended UNM where he studied engineering for enough years to realize that maybe being an engineer wasn’t for him… "That math was really hard". Jokes Dr. K, "I had to drop out and go to dental school". Well, Dr. K found his passion in dentistry, graduating at the very top of his class at Oregon Health Sciences University. He then went on to his orthodontic residency at Baylor College of Dentistry where he used his mediocre engineering skills to develop a computer model simulating how braces move teeth. The American Association of Orthodontists must have been impressed because they awarded him one of the top two awards in the nation for his residency. "Of course, back then the computers were bigger than my couch!"
When Dr. K is not creating beautiful smiles, raising 3 kids keeps him very busy. He spends his free time wishing he had his kids at a younger age so he can keep up with his teen boys on their skiis, bikes and on the basketball court. His daughter delights in bouncing Dr. Kellam’s 50-year old body all over the trampoline.
"I have been blessed with a life of working with kids and raising my own."
