Originally from Coventry, Connecticut, Dr. Kelly Griffith knew from a young age that
she wanted to be in the dental field. It all started when she would practice being a dentist by pulling her younger brother’s loose baby teeth!

Dr. Griffith obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Hartford in Connecticut with a major in Respiratory Therapy. She went on to receive her DDS from SUNY-Buffalo in Buffalo, NY and completed a one year Advanced Education in the General Dentistry Residency Program through East Carolina University at a dental practice located in Sylva, NC.

Dr. Griffith resides in Asheville with her fiancé, Chris. The pair moved together from New York and enjoy many things Western NC has to offer.

She loves many outdoor activities including, hiking, biking and swimming; and likes to relax at home by watching various shows on the HGTV channel (Home & Garden Television). Dr. Griffith is also a huge animal lover. She has two cats Layla and Carmella, and spends some of her free time volunteering at Brother Wolf Animal Rescue.

One fact about Dr. Griffith that many find surprising is that she has a motorcycle! She named it Raspberry due to its beautiful color!
