Doctors and Staff

Meet the experienced and friendly dentists and staff who make Element Dental the leading provider of oral hygiene and personalized dental services in Coeur d’Alene.


Dr. Rachel Fehling, DMD

Dr. Fehling was born and raised here in North Idaho. She and her husband Adam graduated from Post Falls High School where Adam is now a teacher. They then graduated from the University of Idaho before moving to Portland where Dr. Rachel attended dental school at Oregon Health Science University. In 2006 they moved back home to the Coeur d’Alene area where both of their families reside. Now with three beautiful daughters, Emily, Lauren and Katherine, they enjoy all that that the northwest has to offer. You’ll find them boating or camping in the summer and snowshoeing, skiing or sledding in the winter.

Dr. Fehling practiced as an associate dentist in Post Falls for 5 years before deciding to open her own office in 2012. Many thanks go out to her great patients who, through their referrals, have helped Element Dental grow and thrive in the Coeur d’Alene area.

Carol is our gentle and caring hygienist. She graduated from hygiene school in Santa Rosa, CA, in 2005, and has worked in the Coeur d’Alene area since. Carol enjoys teaching her patients the benefits of good oral hygiene and how it affects their overall health. Whether it has been years since your last cleaning or just a few months, Carol and Dr. Fehling will work with you to establish a clear plan to keep you healthy for a lifetime. When she’s not in the office taking care of her patients, she’s spending time with her friends, family, and two boys.
