A healthy lifestyle begins with a healthy mouth, and it’s with this philosophy that Kelly Halverson DDS FAGD practices a comprehensive approach to general and biological dentistry in Richardson, Texas, and the nearby North Dallas communities. Dr. Halverson focuses on helping patients of all ages maintain or restore their optimal oral health, function, and aesthetics for a bright, healthy smile. She educates patients about the critical connection between nutrition and oral health and provides compassionate, stress-free dental care in a comfortable, state-of-the-art environment.
Dr. Halverson earned her Bachelor of Arts and Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Only 7% of dentists across the country achieve this prestigious distinction.
