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.

Dr. Jenna Kedish
Born in Coeur d’Alene and raised on the Post Falls/ Rathdrum prairie, Dr. Kedish is a true North Idaho native. She graduated summa cum laude with her Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition from the University of Idaho. During her U of I summer breaks, Dr. Kedish interned at our very own Hayden Lake office!
After graduating with honors from Creighton University School of Dentistry in 2019, Dr. Kedish opted to expand her knowledge of complex cases with an AEGD (advanced education in general dentistry) residency in Meridian, ID. She is excited to come back to the Idaho Panhandle and join the Avondale Dental Group team. Dr. Kedish will be seeing patients at our Element and Legacy offices.
While not at work, you can find Dr. Kedish and husband, Brendon, hiking, leisurely biking, swimming boating, fishing, camping, and anything else to do with nature. She and Brendon live with their cat, Stella, who they adopted their first year in Omaha and have been taking orders from ever since. Welcome to the team, Dr. Jenna Kedish!
