McKenzie Dental was founded in 1974 by the McKenzie family and it was the first dental practice established in Welches. A new office building was constructed in 1997 that was custom built to be a comfortable and inviting place for dental care. Dr. Robert Kelly and the team at McKenzie Dental are proud to offer a warm and caring environment where we strive to treat everyone like family. We listen to understand each person’s values and needs to tailor optimal, individual care. We are also proud to offer the best treatment available for family, cosmetic, and implant dentistry. We utilize advanced technology and training, including digital X-rays for less exposure to patients, to working with the newest materials and best dental laboratories available to us. We are a general dentist office serving individuals and families in the Mt Hood area, including the communities of Welches, Wemme, Rhododendron, Brightwood, Government Camp, Zig Zag, Sandy, Estacada, Damascus, Boring, Gresham, Maupin, and Tygh Valley.

What Our Patients Say
Started there as a new patient. Normally, there’s so much annoyance starting a new dentist. It was a pleasure. Explained everything they were doing getting a good set of records for me. Scheduled a procedure that was painless. Dr. Kelly gas a great touch. No pain afterwards. I’m impressed.
