Ben Kellum, DDS

Ben Kellum, DDS, grew up in Tupelo, Mississippi. After graduating from Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, he went on to get his Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry. Kellum completed a 1-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency program in Pocatello, Idaho, focused on comprehensive implant planning and treatment. He spent several years in private practice at a full-arch denture and implant clinic and then transitioned full-time to program director of The Foundry Dental AEGD residency program in Birmingham, Alabama. The Foundry Dental Clinic is a Christian-based community clinic, where Kellum was able to use his background in full-arch implant surgery and restoration to give those going through drug recovery access to more ideal treatment options. He has, since then, transitioned to Huntsville, Alabama, where he is co-owner of Transcend Dental Education with Cory Glenn, DDS, where they teach dental continuing education, with an emphasis on digital technology and surgery. Kellum also is co-owner of Transcend Digital Dental Lab, which focuses on designing and fabricating full-arch surgical guides. He is in the process of building a clinic that will serve as a low-cost community clinic in Huntsville, Alabama. Kellum is married to his wife, Rachel, with 3 children (Nora, Amos, and Lucy). He enjoys traveling with his family and playing with his kids in his free time.
