As the original owner of Kelly Family & Cosmetic Dentistry I had the wonderful opportunity to retire in 2022 after 43 years of practice. I was able to transition the dental practice to my son, Dr. Jacob D. Kelly, DDS. Dr. Jacob Kelly has been practicing dentistry since 2014. From 2014 until I retired Dr. Jacob Kelly practiced dentistry at our office while also gaining experience working as an associate dentist for another dental office and with the National Guard. My daughter, Kristin, also joined our dental practice in 2014 as one of our dental hygienists. Kristin graduated from dental hygiene school in 2004 and has practiced in private and group practices in Utah, Minnesota, and California.
Working with my son and daughter before I fully retired was very special to me. It is very comforting to know that after 43 years of building relationships and helping with the dental needs of my patients that this next generation will be providing quality caring dental services to all my current patients and future patients of the practice.
Thank you for a wonderful 43 years and I will look forward to seeing some of you around town outside the dental office!

Outside the Office
I grew up in Yuba City, and have lived in the Rocklin/Loomis area for more than 40 years. I have been married to my wonderful wife Linda for 45 years, and we have six children who are all married. They have given us 22 grandchildren!
Dentistry runs strong in the family with my children. My son Jacob graduated from West Virginia University School of Dentistry and has now become the dental provider. We have another son, Joshua, who graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, and he practices in Northern Colorado. Our daughter Kristin holds a bachelors degree in dental hygiene and also works here at Kelly Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
My free time is spent doing anything I can outdoors: snow skiing, scuba diving, fishing, archery hunting, camping, boating, water skiing, and hiking! My favorite place to take my wife is the Mayan Riviera. She can relax and I can scuba dive!
I feel it is important to serve the local community and have tried to stay informed about local areas of need. When the kids were young, I sponsored several sports teams in our community, coached Little League baseball, and was a scoutmaster. These days, I focus my efforts on church service projects.
