Meet Dr. Kellye Rice

Dr. Kellye Rice is a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) and Diplomate of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). Since 2012, she has been successfully treating sleep apnea patients with oral appliances. Since before 2000 she has been providing TMJ treatment and therapy for pain patients with oral appliances, adding laser pain relief therapy– photobiomodulation and Oralase –in the last decade to improve outcomes.

She is certified in the use of the Fotona Light Walker Twin Laser, and a seasoned provider of the NightLase snoring treatment of the soft palate for the reduction of snoring and sleep apnea. These non-ablative, non-surgical treatments are done using no anesthetics, have no downtime, and are tolerated extremely well by patients. These lasers have a special place in pain relief for her Sleep apnea, TMJ and Pain patients.

Dr. Rice and her husband, Jeff, have been married since 1984. They have three grown children: Haley, Hunter, and Hope. Dr. Rice loves theater, music, reading, and jewelry making. Most people don’t know that she can play the drums, piano, and violin (although the violin only gets played when no one else is at home!).

A member of the Otter Creek congregation, Dr. Rice is passionate about the work of the non-profit Agape Nashville, where she has served as board member since 2019, and for the previous 15 years serving Morning Star Sanctuary, a shelter for victims of domestic violence.
