    Hey Boise! I’m Dr. Helen Harless. I want to take a quick minute to tell you about myself!

    Originally, I’m from Prescott, Arizona and now live in the Boise area with my husband Tim. In my spare time, I enjoy listening to dental podcasts, yoga, swimming, helping my husband on the farm and family business, and spending time with my two young-adult step kids between their many adventures.

    I’ve been with Southwest Dental Associates since July 2011. I graduated from Marquette University School of Dentistry in 2003, and have been practicing and continually learning since then. 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 Dallas, Texas, focusing on same-day porcelain cosmetic and restorative crowns, veneers, sedation dentistry and smile design.

    I’m 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. Lastly, I’m devoted to providing a comfortable and caring environment for patients and for our dental team.

    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.
