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.

— Is Element Dental right for you?

We are your grandma's dentist. Your dad's dentist. Your child's dentist.

Whether it's a routine exam or complex dental treatment, Dr. Rachel Fehling, a top female dentist in North Idaho will treat you with respect in a friendly and skillful manner. Element Dental is set apart from other dental clinics because of the following qualities...

— The Element Dental team takes the time to listen.

In order to provide the best care possible, it is essential that we listen to all of the patient's concerns. This allows you, the patient, to be involved and co-diagnose the treatment to be done in your mouth. From this diagnosis, you and your dentist in Coeur d'Alene can determine which treatment options best fit your needs and wishes.

— Prevention is key to the Element Dental Philosophy.

Most costly and unpleasant dental procedures are avoidable. At Element Dental serving the Coeur d'Alene, Post Falls, and Hayden area the dental exams and cleanings may be more thorough than you are accustomed to. This allows us to identify potential problems and work with you to prevent or reverse further damage. In the long run this will save you time, discomfort, and money.

— Element Dental always provides quality treatment.

When prevention is no longer an option and treatment needs to be performed, rest assured you are in good hands. We use the most advanced technology and techniques in the field. Whether for a routine crown or a smile makeover, we work with the best dental labs in the northwest. We don't outsource any of our work overseas to cut costs. The Element Dental team in Coeur d'Alene, ID, is continually enrolled in classes that allow them to serve you better.
