About Dr. Heather Harris

Dr. Heather Harris, DDS

Hello, I’m Dr. Heather Harris, and I’m so pleased to welcome you to my Wauwatosa dental practice. A dentist is an important partner in caring for your health, so I’d like to share more information about my background with you.

Knowing that going to the dentist can be stressful, I chose to practice dentistry because I wanted to provide dental care that was compassionate, in a welcoming and comfortable environment. I believe it’s important to get to know my patients, so I take time learn about their needs or concerns and educate them on how to best care for their oral health.

Whether it’s a child’s first visit, a preventive checkup or helping a patient achieve their best smile, I specialize in a variety of dental services. This includes orthodontics, pediatrics, implants, cosmetic and general dentistry. The field of dentistry is constantly evolving, so I’m dedicated to advancing my training in each of these areas by regularly participating in continuing education courses.

Born and raised in Brookfield, Wisconsin, I graduated from Brookfield Central High School and continued my education at Marquette University. I’m a proud graduate of Marquette, earning both my undergraduate degree and DDS. I am also very proud to be continuing the legacy of high-quality dental care started by Drs. Paul and Dean Copoulos.

I also believe in giving back to those less fortunate, so I volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and Wisconsin Dental Association’s Mission of Mercy, and I regularly participate in international mission trips to provide emergency dental care. Also of particular interest to me is brittle bone disease. I’ve published a chapter on providing dental care for patients with this rare disease and continue to help those suffering from the disease by volunteering with Shriners Hospital in Chicago.

During the summer of 2018, I accepted a position as Adjunct Associate Professor at Marquette University School of Dentistry. I'm very excited to have an opportunity to share my clinical knowledge with the next generation of Marquette Dentists.

When I’m not practicing dentistry, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, discovering new coffee shops and restaurants, and running along Milwaukee’s beautiful lakefront.
