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.
Rachel joined our front office team in September 2020. She is a native Oregonian and was raised in Canby, Oregon. She has a deep love for cooking, live music, and enjoying time with her boyfriend of nine years along with their three rescue cats Drogo, Khaleesi, and Laszlo. She came to our office with a 15 year background in Early Childhood Education. Rachel was seeking a new adventure and saw our office as the perfect place grow. She is in awe and inspired by every member of our team and is ready to learn. She is excited to pursue her passion of connecting, listening, and helping others in her community.
Rachel became very familiar with dentistry while working in her father’s dental practice in Montana. She began her career as a sterilization technician and later became a dental assistant. She found a passion in Prosthetic Dentistry because she loves helping others find their confidence again. Outside of the office she loves spending time with her two boys, Elek who is 4 and Ollie who is 17 months old. She also enjoys CrossFit and coaching CrossFit.
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.
Arianne has been a dental assistant since early 2020. She Graduated from PSU with a Bachelor’s of Science in 2014 in public health and decided dental assisting would be a great career. She joined Advanced Dentistry in the fall of 2021 as she loves interacting with patients and the challenges of prosthodontics. Arianne relocated from Los Angeles 20 years ago and loves the rain in Oregon. She enjoys spending time with her husband, two daughters, and cat named Mina.
