Kelly Hendricks, DDS
Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Kelly grew up just outside of Denver in Littleton, Colorado. After high school, the Hendricks family moved to Highland, Utah, where Dr. Kelly attended a year of college before heading out on a two-year mission trip in Joao Pessoa, Brazil. Upon returning home Dr. Kelly went back to school and met the love of his life, Lechelle. After a year and a half of dating, Dr. Kelly popped the question and asked Lechelle to marry him. She said yes, and the newlyweds moved to Kansas City, Missouri where Dr. Kelly continued working towards attending dental school.
In May of 2013, Dr. Kelly graduated from the UMKC School of Dentistry and moved his family to the eastern shore of Maryland to focus on a specialty education in Pediatric Dentistry. In residency, Dr. Kelly treated the underserved population of the three lower counties of the Delmarva Peninsula, providing comprehensive clinical care, oral conscious sedation, and hospital dentistry.
Post-residency, Dr. Kelly worked in Santa Fe, NM with his brother (also a pediatric dentist) for four years before moving to the Pacific Northwest. Dr. Kelly and his wife Lechelle have been married since 2006 and have three boys – Boston, Gray, and Cole.
Dr. Kelly is a board-certified Diplomate with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. He’s excited to be in Oregon and a part of the Acorn family!
