Born with a cleft lip and palate, Dr. Kelly McNally knows how it feels to be ashamed to smile. After wearing braces since first grade and following multiple reconstructive procedures, Dr. McNally achieved the gift of a smile.
The importance of a smile inspired Dr. McNally to pursue a career in dentistry with a focus on cosmetic and restorative procedures. “Dentistry is a team effort between the dentist and the patient. It’s my job to empower and educate my patients, to listen to their needs and to then create proper function and esthetics,” explains Dr. McNally.
One of Dr. McNally’s proudest achievements is carrying on the Passarelli family legacy left by her father-in-law and her late husband, Dr. Lawrence Passarelli, for exceptional and compassionate family dental care. With the support of her devoted staff and loyal patients, Dr. McNally is focusing on the future and is tremendously proud of the growth of the practice, including the addition of Dr. Charles Lennon. Dr. Lennon, a prosthodontist, brings valuable experience to her team and demonstrates the same passion for dentistry and compassion for excellent patient care that is the heart and soul of the practice.
