Dr. David Kelly

Dr. David Kelly was born and raised in Bristol, VA.

Being the son of a dentist, he grew up in the office watching his father work. When he was old enough, he would answer phones, work in sterilization, and began developing a desire to provide the same care his father was providing. This led Dr. Kelly to attend Emory and Henry College for his undergraduate degree and then head to dental school at VCU’s School of Dentistry. He continued working with his father at his office before developing a practice of his own. Dr. Kelly has practiced in various cities around Virginia and has volunteered with Healing Hands and Cross Roads Medical ministries providing free dental services to the needy. He is also Invisalign and Six Month Smiles certified. He is very experienced with dental implants as well.

Dr. Kelly believes the best part of being a dentist is seeing a person’s life change for the better by simply improving their smile. Getting someone out of pain and on the road to recovery is also very rewarding, but helping a patient get on board with their own daily hygiene through compassionate care is a goal of his.

Dr. Kelly has two adult sons and in his spare time, he enjoys live music and sporting events. Some of his most recent ticket stubs were to Dave Matthews Band, Chicago, Doobie Brothers, Earth, Wind, and Fire, as well as UVA vs. Tech Football games, the Orange Bowl, and Masters Golf Tournaments. If time permitted, Dr. Kelly would play more golf. He is also a huge fan of Star Wars.

Dr. Rafael Siqueira

Dr. Rafael Siqueira

Dr. Rafael Siqueira is originally from Recife, a beautiful town on the coast of Brazil. He attended the University of Pernambuco in Brazil and graduated from dental school in 2010.

He then went on to complete a Masters of Implantology which is similar to a US residency program. After completing that, he joined a PhD program at the Federal University of Pernambuco which sent him to the University of Michigan to do research for his master’s thesis. Once he completed his PhD, he headed back to Michigan School of Dentistry for a 3-year residency in Periodontics. During his time in school and residency, he was able to publish over 30 scientific articles in international peer reviewed journals and write five book chapters. This resulted in a few awards over the years.

Dr. Siqueira’s interest in dentistry started to develop very early in his life by watching his parents who are both dentists. He observed his father teaching students and treating both students and patients with compassionate care. He witnessed a few instances where patients were moved to tears by the results of his father’s care and students whose lives were so strongly impacted by the mentorship his father provided on their path to become a Periodontist or Implantologist. Dr. Siqueira soon realized he wanted to have that same positive impact by being a dentist, educator and researcher.

Dr. Siqueira describes himself as not only family-oriented and very sociable, but also easy-going and calm. He loves being with friends, having a good time and sharing great food. He is typically very optimistic. He is married to Renata, a lawyer, who just recently gave birth to their first child, Thomas. They do not currently have any pets but hope to add a dog to their family in the near future. Dr. Siqueira is a big sports fan, food lover and loves to travel. His hobbies include playing tennis, watching sports, exploring new restaurants, travelling and meeting new people, and learning new languages. A fun fact about Dr. Siqueira is that he speaks his native language, Portuguese, as well as English, Italian, and can communicate quite well in Spanish. He is currently taking a Spanish course to improve his fluency.

DrByerson

Dr. Christina Byerson

Dr. Christina Byerson grew up as a child in a military household. She was born in Japan and lived in Germany and Oklahoma before settling in Hampton, VA, when she was in middle school. She attended Virginia Commonwealth University for both her undergraduate degree and dental school.

Dr. Byerson loves to volunteer in the community with programs like Give Kids a Smile and MOM Projects. She is also an active member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and supports several sports programs and mentors youth.

Dr. Byerson was first drawn to dentistry in high school during a career exploration course. However, she didn’t confirm her desire to be a dentist until she attended a MOM Project in Wise County where she met a man named Steve. Steve was her age and had to sit for three hours and have his remaining 16 teeth extracted. Seeing someone so young go through this procedure really resonated with Dr. Byerson as she felt that early intervention could have prevented this outcome. Although she knows she can’t save the world, Dr. Byerson knows that as a dentist, she can prevent another situation like Steve’s from occurring, and that can make a huge difference in the lives of her patients. She is driven to continue to learn new techniques and practices as she strives to provide the highest quality care to her patients. She considers herself blessed to know her hands have the ability to help rid someone’s pain, change a smile, and simply touch a life.

Dr. Byerson is married to her husband Braxton who is an entrepreneur, certified life coach and marketing specialist. They have three active little boys – Braxton, Christian, and Declan. She describes herself as energetic, goal-oriented and always looking for the best in others. After a hard work week, you can find Dr. Byerson on a Saturday morning cutting her grass. She gets instant gratification from seeing something ungroomed turn into a masterpiece and she takes pride in her efforts. A fun fact about her is that if she weren’t a dentist, she believes she would probably work in the IT field. She loves technology, exploring Adobe Creative Suite and digital graphics. She and her husband also love to travel and have plans to visit Germany and Japan in the near future.
