Dr. Chris Bell grew up in Cayuga, a small farming community just north of Terre Haute, Indiana. After high school, he attended Purdue University where he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in microbiology.

Dr. Bell worked for an environmental firm for a year before enrolling at Logan College of Chiropractic (St. Louis, MO) on the recommendation of a friend. Dr. Bell graduated from Logan in December of 2009 with a Doctorate in Chiropractic and an additional Bachelor of Science degree in health science.

After graduation, Dr. Bell, his wife, Shelli, and their two dogs made the trip “up north” to West Michigan and opened Bell Family Chiropractic. In 2014, Dr. Bell joined Advanced Family Chiropractic Center.

In the spring of 2014, Dr. Bell and his wife, Shelli, were blessed with twin boys, Brooks and Caleb. Most recently, Dr. Bell and his wife welcomed their daughter, Jordan Marie in the summer of 2016.
