Kelly Carlisle, DMD
Dr. Kelly Carlisle is genuinely passionate about high quality dentistry, and delivering a positive and comforting dental experience for his patients. He is honored to be a member the Page Family Dentistry team. When it comes to treating his patients, Dr. Carlisle is seen just as much as a trusted friend as he is an oral health practitioner. Consultations with him are warm, attentive, the appointments relaxing, and the doctor-patient relationship open and honest. He really takes the time to listen to his patients and help guide them to be involved in their oral health and their treatment approach. To Dr. Carlisle, dentistry is about more than just fixing teeth – it is about open communication, devotion to craft, and finding a way to to connect with patients to achieve a common goal.
As a native of Green Mountain Falls, Colorado, a small mountain town at the foot of the Rockies, Dr. Carlisle grew up with an avid appreciation for life out doors and the beauty in nature. Throughout his youth, he developed natural intrigue for biology, and enjoyed drawing, sculpture, creating music, and other activities that required attention to dexterity and aesthetic sensibilities. Building custom homes with his father at an early age, Dr. Carlisle established a deep appreciation for fine craftsmanship, artistry, attention to detail, and patience. Although he still enjoys building projects, his inclination for science and biology, desire to help others, and propensity for design and working with his hands lead him to a path in dentistry. Dr. Carlisle met his wife Julia when he moved to Utah to attend school, and has grown to call Utah his home ever since. In his free time, he enjoys mountain biking, backcountry activities, traveling to unknown places, cooking, and making fine craft pickles.
