About Us:

Dr. Kelleher has created a practice in which quality always comes first.

What we most often hear about us, as mentioned by our patients, is that our staff is very friendly and that there is a feeling of relaxation in our office. Parents comment that, unlike other experiences in more fast-paced offices, we have an atmosphere and way of treatment that conveys calm and room for conversation and handling questions. What may make us the most unique is the firm belief by all our staff that achieving quality results is made more possible by being on time with our appointments (generally less than 2-3 minutes wait times), emphasizing clear communication, keeping patients comfortable and having fun with our day.

Our approach to orthodontic care is based on the premise that keeping as many teeth as possible is always a preference in conservative treatment planning. In addition, constant attention to preserving the health of the jaw joint is central to our treatment process. To ensure optimum jaw health, maximize esthetics and finishing treatment on-time requires a careful and consistent “hands-on” approach that Dr Kelleher provides during every adjustment appointment.

Each of our staff treats our patients as they would like to be treated. We believe our patients’ chief concern is of paramount importance as a starting point and ending point in determining which treatment option(s) will lead to the greatest success.

In our office, we employ the most modern orthodontic technologies, such as computerized x-rays, self-ligating brackets and state of the art materials (many of which derive from NASA discoveries). The added gain from these efficiencies reflects in faster treatment times, more consistent results, and overall care that is more and more affordable.

Dr. Kelleher understands that each and every patient has different needs and requirements.

When he established his practice this was one of the main focuses, to ensure that patients receive quality and comprehensive care from a reliable orthodontist. Dr. Kelleher focuses on providing personalized orthodontic treatments to address every oral healthcare need and to achieve optimal and lasting results. With his in-depth and hands-on approach to dentistry and orthodontics, he helps patients of all ages enjoy the full advantages of professional dental care.

Dr. Kelleher received his orthodontic specialty training from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA and his general training from USC. Before becoming an orthodontist, Dr. Kelleher was a general dentist for 14 years. He was an associate general dentist for the first 4 years in Sacramento, and then was in private practice for 10 years in the Bay Area. He has served on staff at Stanford University's Packard Children's Hospital in the Plastic Surgery/Craniofacial Anomalies Department, working with children with birth defects such as cleft palate. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Orthodontics and is a member of the Angle Society, a group of colleagues dedicated toward advancing research in orthodontics. His extensive experience as a general practitioner prior to becoming an orthodontist has been invaluable to his understanding of the comprehensive needs of his patients. He has presented his own research internationally in an effort to contribute to the knowledge base of the orthodontic specialty he loves.

Dr. Robert Kelleher and his staff take patient care to a higher level by ensuring that even underlying needs are addressed. While most patient concerns merely stem from the desire to have straighter teeth, Dr. Kelleher seeks to ensure that all teeth, gum, and jaw health issue are also taken care of. His expertise as an orthodontist helps patients prevent future oral healthcare problems and the costly treatment associated with each one.

When not working with patients, Dr. Kelleher’s other interests include composing music, photography and playing piano in a band that performs mostly blues and pop music. He also can be found riding his bicycle along the bike paths in Folsom, Granite Bay and California Foothills with family or friends. He fancies himself as a remodeling contractor at his home, since he can easily be found wiring a new electrical circuit, building a wall or soldering a copper water line. Additionally, he enjoys travelling and relaxing at home with family.

I have over 25 years in the orthodontic field. I joined Dr. Kelleher in 2007 to help with the new patients, accounting and financial needs for all our patients. I love meeting our new patients, and watching as their smiles and self esteem progress over time with orthodontic treatment. We have a great family atmosphere which I believe our patients tend to feel at home too, joking around and talking about all their activities that are going on in thier busy lives.

After hours I enjoy spending time with my husband along with our 3 grown children and 9 grandchildren.
