We are excited to announce that Dr. Kelly Harness will be joining our practice October 3rd, 2017!
Dr. Kelly Harness was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She grew up playing soccer and snowboarding in the many mountains in British Columbia. After her graduation from high school she was awarded an athletic scholarship in soccer and went to Oklahoma State University and then University of Wyoming where she graduated with a business degree.
Furthering her education by completing her MBA at Oregon State University, Dr. Harness was awarded honors and inducted into the Beta Gamma Sigma Honors Society. While attending OSU, she was the Assistant Director of Football Operations and Executive Assistant to Head Coach Mike Riley. It was at this time that she developed her passion for dentistry.
Dr. Harness attended Oregon State Health Sciences School of Dentistry in Portland, OR. While in dental school, she did volunteer dentistry for the Boys and Girls Club of Corvallis and Medical Teams International. She was also part of a team of dentists volunteering their time in Guatemala, a trip she hopes to make again.
Dr. Harness comes to us after spending several years in Kansas where her husband Pax completed a veterinary medicine residency specializing in radiology. Buffalo is home to Pax and Kelly is very much looking forward to putting down roots in this beautiful town that she has visited frequently over the years.
In her free time, Dr. Harness enjoys spending time with her husband Pax, her son Locke, her friends and her family in both Buffalo, WY and Vancouver, BC. She can also be seen running her dogs Kootenay and Kyra, both Golden Retrievers, hiking, mountain biking, cycling and enjoying the outdoors.
We are confident that Dr. Harness' gentle touch and warm personality will allow you to relax in the dental chair. We are thrilled to have found the perfect match for our team, and we hope you get the chance to meet her soon!
You can contact our office immediately to schedule your appointment with her.
