Meet the Staff of San Diego Periodontics & Implant Dentistry
Kelly Wei is our Office Manager. She graduated from the Questrom School of Business at Boston University. After graduation, she was offered to join the Leadership Development Program at The Hartford, an accelerated program where a selected few are trained to become future leaders of the company. Her love for New York City brought her to Moody’s Analytics, where she led marketing initiatives on the product team. Although she misses the northeast, she was tired of the long winters and moved to Southern California where she was offered a managing role in dentistry.
She has resided in several different cities in Asia and America before making San Diego her home. When she’s not working on improving patient experience, she enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants, staying active and going to the beach. She lives to eat and has an ice cream/gelato and bubble tea addiction.
