Hello Boise! I’m Dr. Helen Harless. Let me tell you a bit about myself and about our office.
I’m from Prescott, Arizona and have been in the Treasure Valley since February of 2011. I have been with Southwest Dental Arts since July of 2011. I graduated from Marquette University School of Dentistry in 2003, and have been practicing and continually learning more ever since. I spent my first three years as a dentist in the Air Force while working on my post-doctoral education. After the Air Force, I dedicated two years to a non-profit clinic where I provided needed emergency and restorative care to the underserved population in Fort Worth, Texas.
Before coming to Boise, I worked at a private practice in Irving, Texas, outside Dallas, focusing on same-day porcelain cosmetic and restorative crowns, veneers, sedation dentistry and smile design.
My husband, Tim, and I moved here from Texas to follow his (our) dream of starting up a winery in a world-class grape-growing region. While Tim makes award-winning wine, I strive to provide excellent dentistry and the synergistic experience that happens with a well-trained team.
My newest addition of technology to the office is a CEREC Primescan. I have been doing same-day crowns since 2009, and this machine helps me do them even faster. It also has a digital scanner so that I can do complex cases to send to the lab with digital precision. We can do ortho, dentures, implant restorations, and more using digital imaging.
I am dedicated to providing high-quality individualized patient care by leading a team of expertly trained and caring professionals. I’m committed to continually increasing my skills through continuing education and using modern technology. I’m devoted to providing a comfortable and caring environment for patients and for our dental team.
Now, in the age of Coronavirus, we are implementing the best practices to keep our office safe for our patients and team members.
I hope to see you in our office soon! Feel free to give us a call and we’ll be there to take care of your dental needs.
