Dr. Shaunda Kelly earned her Doctorate in Dental Medicine from the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry in 2005. She completed her Doctorate of Medicine from the University of Alabama School of Medicine in 2008. In 2009 she received a first year training certificate in General Surgery; and in June 2011 she completed a residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. She is currently the Chief of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at the VA Medical Center in Birmingham, AL and also serves as Assistant Professor in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Alabama Health Services Foundation.
Dr. Kelly’s primary area of surgical interest is oral reconstruction and facial bone regeneration in the maxillofacial skeleton. She also treats patients suffering with facial pain, neuralgia, fibromyalgia, traumatic and arthritic temopormandibular joint disease. She has co-authored several publications to include autogenous vs. allogenic bone grafts with implants, as well as TMJ arthroscopy vs. mandibular condylotomy in chronic tempormandibular joint pain and dysfunction.
In addition to specializing in the areas of pain concerning, myofascial, cervicofacial, trigeminal neuralgia, facial neuropathy, fibromyalgia and TMJ facial pain disorders, Dr. Kelly has also incorporated the use of stem cell regenerative therapy into her practice for maxillofacial bone regeneration, facial pain, TMJ pain and arthralgia.
As a member of the American Academy of Anti-aging and Regenerative Medicine she expects to complete her fellowship in Stem Cell Therapy and Regenerative Medicine in December 2017.
Dr. Kelly firmly believes that chronic pain can be managed and in some cases can be eliminated through alternative therapy in regenerative and electroanalgesic medicine, and that these are some of the more powerful tools that may provide reduction of pain, numbness, swelling and chronic symptoms of metabolic disease. Dr. Kelly is excited to offer treatments in EST and stem cell therapy at Regenerative Medical Institute
