Meet The Team
Lori is our office manager and is passionate about supporting our patients and staff. With over 20 years of experience in the dental field she professes it is our outstanding clinical care and our ethical way of doing business that makes her never want to leave. When she’s not in the office she enjoys the heck out of her three kids, will occasionally commute on her Yamaha V-Star and has a unique appreciation for Oregon’s liquid sunshine. “This isn’t a job. It’s a place to come and do great things with amazing people”.
Sydney is the first person you speak to on the phone or see when walking through our door! Originally from the Bay Area, Sydney enjoys reading, spending time with her family, exploring all the unique spots Portland has to offer, as well as adventuring with her way too adorable silver lab puppy, Hazel! Sydney is constantly inspired by the doctors here in our office, and plans to expand on her career in dentistry by applying to dental school in the next couple of years. She loves getting to know each and every patient here in the office, and thoroughly enjoys seeing them successfully reclaim their confidence in their smiles again.
Elisha started her dental assisting career 31 years ago. She enjoys building relationships with our patients and bringing a smile to anyone she meets! She and her husband have been married for 28 years. They have two daughters, a yellow lab and a feisty cat named Bear. She loves hiking, spending time with her family, discovering new wines and delving into paranormal books.
Chelsea has been a dental assistant since 2015. She joined Advanced Dentistry because she loves the great relationships she gets to build with our patients and watching their smiles transform from the first appointment to the last. She learns something new every day working with Dr. Halmos and Dr. Manning. She was born and raised in Lebanon, Oregon and moved to Portland in 2013. In her free time she enjoys spending time outdoors (when it’s not raining), playing with her cats (Walter and Stella), cooking and traveling to new places.
Kelley is the newest member to our team! She joined Advanced Dentistry’s practice as a dental assistant January this year. She’s always been fascinated with all the beneficial treatments dental care can bring and also enjoys anything science and healthcare related. Kelley was born in Seoul, South Korea but grew up in Oregon and loves to travel often and explore new places. On her days off, you can find her adventuring with her Australian Cattle Dog and German Shepherd, spending time with friends and family and often savoring new wines!
