As tempting as it is to indulge in sugary treats or dive into a bag…
We are so excited to introduce Dr. Amberena Fairlee. Here is a little about our newest team member!
“Having grown up in Bend, I love getting to practice dentistry in my home community!”
Dr. Amberena Fairlee started her dental career by attending Central Oregon Community College’s dental assisting program. Then worked as a dental assistant in Bend for years before deciding to become a dentist. She completed her undergraduate education at Portland State University, receiving her bachelor’s degree in Health Studies with a concentration in Health Sciences. Oregon Health and Science University’s School of Dentistry is where she received her Doctorate in Dental Medicine.
After becoming a dentist, Dr. Fairlee has participated in many aspects of leadership within the dental community. She graduated from the Oregon Dental Association’s inaugural Leadership Academy and was elected as a Trustee on the ODA’s board to represent Central Oregon. She has written several blog posts for the American Dental Association and enjoys getting to participate in our local Central Oregon Dental Society. Dr. Fairlee is passionate about representing the dental field as a young female and loves providing inspiration and guidance for other women in this field.
In her spare time, she loves to spend time with her husband, Nathan, and their three kids, Jasper, Fiona, and Henrik. They love to play disc golf, go hiking in the mountains and play at the river. She loves good coffee, music trivia, and Central Oregon’s incredible beauty.
