Dr. Elise Helvie Franklin was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. She has fond memories of skiing as a Mighty Mite at Bogus Basin, showing horses at the Western Idaho Fair, and playing volleyball and tennis as a Bishop Kelly Knight.


Dr. Franklin knew that she wanted to become a dentist since she was a young teen.  Her pursuit of education took her away from Boise for a Bachelors of Arts in Chemistry from Willamette University in Salem, OR (2009) and a Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Washington in Seattle, WA (2013).  After graduation from dental school, she went on to complete a general dentistry residency at Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, TX (2015).


Dr. Franklin returned home to join Dr. Devin J. Stampfli in practice at Pennsylvania Dental in 2015.  She is an active member of the American Dental Association and the Idaho State Dental Association, and has held several leadership positions in the Southwest Idaho Dental Society.


Dr. Franklin seeks to provide patients with the highest level of care.  She is an active member of a Spear Study Club, a leading institution in dental continuing education and enjoys courses that keep her on the forefront of restorative, cosmetic, and implant dentistry.


When not in the office, Dr. Franklin can be found spending time with her husband, Adam, and their families and friends. They enjoy adventures in the Idaho mountains: skiing, biking, and camping.  She is an avid spectator of Adam’s triathlons and also enjoys horseback riding, baking, and a good book.


Dr. Franklin looks forward to establishing long lasting relationships with her patients as she strives to give them beautiful smiles so that they may make a positive and lasting impression wherever their life journey may take them.
