Dr. Chantel Keller

City Creek Dental's DDS, Dr. Chantel Keller.

I grew up in a small central Texas town called Hillsboro. I received my undergraduate degree in Biology from Texas Tech University, and received my dental degree from Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, where I was blessed to meet my husband Jacob. I am a member of the American Dental AssociationTexas Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry. I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry, but most of all, I love the opportunity to get to know each and every patient and help them achieve their dental goals.

In my time outside of work, I love to travel, play tennis, spend time outdoors with our Great Dane, Luna and of course our new baby girl Bonnie. Most of all, I cherish every moment with my family.
