We have an amazing dental office team that assists Dr. Friess in his work. Learn more about our dental staff:


Sharon, R.D.H

I have worked alongside Dr. Friess since the beginning — I’m his wife!  I am a Registered Dental Hygienist, as well as our office manager and treatment coordinator. I am committed to making sure that your overall experience with us not only meets your needs, but also exceeds your expectations. I have the unique pleasure of helping each patient balance their treatment needs with their financial options, including insurance benefits. I’m here to make sure you understand all the options available to you.

Being the mother of five sons and a daughter, who are all wonderful individuals, is my greatest accomplishment. They’ve brought happiness beyond measure to Bob and me. We also have 13 unbelievably bright and beautiful grandchildren. I feel so blessed for all I’ve been given and the opportunity to extend happiness to others each and every day.


Leslie, Dental Hygienist

Leslie has been working in the dental field for nearly 15 years. Her dedication to patients stems from the fact that she truly enjoys the relationships she is able to develop with each one. She believes that trust is key in providing gentle, thorough care to patients and she approaches every person with respect and honesty. When she’s not helping to keep smiles healthy, she enjoys spending time with husband of more than 10 years, traveling, CrossFit and hiking with their dog, Gunnar.


Jolene, Receptionist (EFDA and EFODA)

For more than 15 years, Jolene has served patients as a dental assistant and receptionist. With the thorough knowledge she’s gained during her time in the dental field, she is truly an invaluable resource to our patients. She also makes everyone who walks through our door feel welcome and comfortable in our friendly, family-style atmosphere. She’s passionate about good oral health and truly loves spending her days working with Dr. Friess, his wife Sharon and teammates who share the same devotion to genuine personal care.

Jolene is originally from the heart of the beautiful Bitterroot Mountains of Montana, where she cultivated a love for the outdoors. Now, her favorite activity outside the office is taking in one of the many nature hikes Oregon has to offer, with her husband, Michael. Together they are also the parents of four children and have 11 grandkids.


Kim, Dental Hygienist

Kim began her work in the dental field in 1993 and found that it really suited her. Her passion for helping people achieve and maintain excellent oral health led her back to college in 2000 to earn her degree in dental hygiene. She loves keeping close relationships with patients as well as working with Dr. Friess and our team. She and her husband of 17 years are the proud parents of two children. Together, they enjoy camping, fishing, hunting, quad riding and vacationing. Kim also likes trying her hand gourmet cooking and interior design—at least, when she gets a chance.
