Counted among those who have had their smiles beautified by Dr. Connelly are runway models, executives, moms, celebrities, firefighters, police, sports stars, and people from every other conceivable profession.

Dr. Connelly's patients have graced the covers of more than 300 magazines internationally, including Vogue, Bazaar, Elle, and the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. He is responsible for many of the beautiful smiles that have appeared on Dancing with the Stars, The Apprentice, and the Victoria's Secret fashion show. Undoubtedly, you have seen his work. And if you think you may have seen Dr. Connelly himself somewhere, well you just may have - he is the spokesperson for luxury global retailer GoSmile, and can be seen on QVC weekly.

Accredited by the American Society of Dental Aesthetics - the most prestigious and selective credentialing organization in the world for Aesthetic Dentistry - Dr. Connelly is also a Fellow in the International Academy for Dental Facial Esthetics; in fact, Dr. Connelly was nominated into this academy by the Father of Cosmetic Dentistry - Dr. Irwin Smigel himself.

Dr. Connelly received his dental training at the Mayo Clinic, the University of Detroit Mercy, and Louisiana State University, and has also served as a clinical professor in two Ivy League schools - (previously at Harvard University Dental School in Boston, and currently as an assistant professor at Columbia Dental School).
