  • Dr.
    Kelly J. Clark
    DDS

    I grew up in Spring, Texas, just north of Houston. Since Jr. High, I knew I wanted to be a dentist. I attended both the Academy of Science and Technology and Oak Ridge High where I participated in basketball. The day after high school graduation, I went to Marine Corps boot camp. I joined the Marine Corps Reserves in 1991 as a mortar man and served for 7 years. From there I attended Howard Payne University for my undergraduate degree, where I was able to continue to play basketball. My senior year I had the honor of playing in the NAIA National Championship Tournament. I went on from there to dental school at The University of Texas Health School of Dentistry in Houston. In my second year, I applied and received a health professions scholarship from the US Army. I was commissioned as an officer in April 1998, transferring from the Marine Corps into the Army. I graduated from dental school in June of 2000 and began my active duty Army career. While in the Army, I graduated from a 1-yr Advance General Dentistry program in September of 2001. In 2003, I Served in Iraq for 5 months and finished my time with the Army in November. My Wife Angie (Allen) Clark was born and raised in Decatur, so she was familiar with the area and still had friends and family here. I love my job but also love my family so I liked the idea of living and working in a more rural community that would allow us to enjoy both. We have 4 kids that keep us on the move. I have been able to coach and help out with many of the kid’s activities and sporting events. Christ is the central part of my life and I try to reflect that relationship to my community. My family has been active in many different community events and at this point the construction of 8 new homes for families in need. I have an amazing and caring staff that I could not function without.

    Melissa Burnett
    DMD

    I grew up in Mt. Zion, where I was a multisport athlete and involved in show choir. I graduated in 2001 and headed south to Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. I went to SIUE for 3 years and the Southern Illinois University-School of Dental Medicine for 4 years, earning my bachelors in Biological Sciences after my first year of dental school. While at SIU-SDM, I was active in student council and Psi Omega dental fraternity. I graduated in June of 2008 and was 2nd in my class. I returned to the area and started working shortly thereafter. I love my job and could not have picked a better place to be! I am married with 3 boys, who keep me on my toes! Family is very important to me and I am so very lucky to work with such amazing people that are truly like a part of my family!

    Brittany Keck-Flory
    DMD

    I grew up in Mt. Zion and graduated in 2010. My next stop in education took me to SIU-Edwardsville where I graduated with a degree in Biology.  I didn't have to go too far for dental school, I attended SIU School of Dental Medicine in Alton, IL and graduated in 2018.  While in Dental School, I was involved in the Delta Sigma Delta Dental Fraternity.  I was very glad to be able to work for my dad and grandpa's dental practice before coming to Decatur Dental Care.  I enjoy keeping up my dental education, I am a member of the Academy of General Dentists as well as American Equilibration Society.  I like giving back to the community I grew up in, I am an active member of the Junior Welfare Association.  When I am not working or volunteering, I try to spend time with my husband and our growing family.

Zion most of my life.  I graduated from Eisenhower High School then attended SIU for my bachelor's degree.  After college, I went to SIU School of Dental Medicine and graduated in 1986.  In my down time, I enjoy spending time with my family and going to Chicago Cubs games as well as golfing with friends.
