He dedicates much of his time to ongoing education in the field of dentistry. By staying abreast of the latest developments in dental technology, Dr. Zelby is able to bring his patients the most comfortable and effective dental care possible.

Prosthetic specialist Dr. David Zelby founded Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry of Atlanta in 1980. With three years of rigorous specialized training in prosthetics after completing dental school, Dr. Zelby has a special understanding of the perfect balance between art and technique in the dynamics of a smile. Prosthetic or restorative dentistry is a specialty that focuses on cosmetic and functional reconstruction of missing, broken or discolored teeth. While Dr. Zelby's training iincludes complex dental needs, he also handles the general dental care everyone requires.

After earning his degree from the New York University School of Dentistry in 1974, he spent one year in general practice residency at French and Polyclinic Hospital in New York City. In 1975, Dr. Zelby was accepted into a Fellowship Program in Prosthodontic Dentistry at the Medical University of South Carolina College of Dental Medicine. He received his certificate in prosthodontics in 1977.

Aside from being an esteemed dentist in the Atlanta area, Dr. Zelby is Chief of Staff at the Ben Massell Dental Clinic. The clinic is the only one of its kind in the United States that functions with only volunteer dentists and is free for the underprivileged in metro Atlanta.  Dr. Zelby is an avid traveler and loves to recount his latest traveling adventures to patients.  He is married to Zoe Hersey, an Atlanta artist.  They share a blended family of three children, Andrea Zelby, a physical therapist in San Diego, Jordan Hersey, a student at Savannah College of Art and Design and Zachary Hersey, a pre-dental major at Georgia Tech.  Of course, we can't forget Lyla Rose, Dr. Zelby's beautiful standard poodle who can frequently be seen on jogs down Peachtree Road with her master.
