My Story

Aloha I'm Dr. Harris! Thank you for your interest in learning more about me and our dental office.

The two things I'm most proud of in life are my family and my profession. 

I have wanted to be a dentists since I can remember and I grew up trying to be as involved in the dental field as possible. My aunt is a dentist who served as my inspiration and role model from the very beginning. I worked as a dental assistant all through high school, competed in a dental terminology competition in Jr. High, worked the front office of a dental office in college and I kept all my baby teeth from the time I turned 6 so that I could study them under a microscope. To say that dentistry is my life sounds dramatic but I couldn't be any more sincere. 


I come from a large family of 7 and grew up in Bountiful, Utah. I met my husband when I was studying at Brigham Young University and he was going to the fire academy to become a firefighter/paramedic. After graduating from dental school we moved to Washington state where I practiced in a community health clinic in Yelm.

My husband and I have three children ages 5, 8 and 11. We moved to Hawaii 4 years ago and have enjoyed learning about the Island and its rich culture. We love to spend our weekends at the beach or camping and we love to travel to the mainland to visit family and friends. In my spare time I enjoy watching movies, reading, crafts and paddle boarding.


I am very proud to play a role in the non-profit organization The LOVE Project; a foundation founded by my mother, that travels to South America annually to provide free dental care and donate other daily essentials to families in underserved communities. I run the dental program and organize the emergency and preventive care of those that we serve.


I am a member of the ADA, HDA and currently serving as the secretary of the Hawaii County Dental Society.
