Meet the Team

  • Dr. Bruce Farrell, DDS.

    I was born and raised in Redding and graduated from Enterprise High School with a full athletic scholarship in football to Cal Poly. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology, I was awarded a Dean’s Scholarship to attend the University of Pacific, School of Dentistry, in San Francisco, where I earned my DDS.

    I was then accepted into a one-year Advanced General Dentistry Program at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. There, I focused on dental implants, periodontics and bite/TMJ disorders. In 1996, I returned to Northern California and started practicing in Palo Cedro, eventually expanding my practice to Cottonwood. Since my return, I have been very dedicated to continuing my studies with the leaders in dentistry so I can bring the best options available to my patients.

    I am passionate about dentistry and getting to know my patients and helping them discover the many options modern dentistry has to offer. I am active in the community by participating in local civic clubs. I am married to Shelley, and we have a daughter, Riley and twin sons, Ty and Chase. I enjoy fly-fishing, backpacking, mountain biking and spending time with my family.

  • Jodi, RDA
    Office Manager (PC)

    I feel extremely grateful working in my hometown with Dr. Farrell since 2006. I am part of a fabulous team that provides our patients with outstanding care. Helping the greatest patients ever and providing excellent customer service is not only gratifying, but also makes the office the happiest place on earth.

    I earned my RDA in 1985, married my forever rock Tom, in 1988, and raised our two incredible kids Alexa and Andrue, who are my greatest joy. I love spending time with family, my dogs and living healthy in the great outdoors.

  • Bonnie, RDA
    Assitant

    I am the newest member of this team, and am so enjoying being here! My name is Bonnie Koller, and though I have been a Registered Dental Assistant since 1997, most recently I have spent several years specializing in Oral Sleep Medicine (treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea with an Oral Sleep Retainer). I was delighted to transition to this office knowing that Dr Farrell is passionate about Oral Sleep Medicine, and the quality of life and life preserving benefits it offers. It has been rewarding to see the high quality of care that is offered here, the variety of services provided and to hear patients express that they can tell this is an exceptional practice. On a personal note, I am married to the love of my life, Bob Koller. We enjoy the outdoors from hiking to kayaking and often enjoy such activities with our family and friends.

  • Leesa
    DA Assistant

    My name is Leesa and I was born and raised in Shasta county. I have been an assistant since 2015 and enjoy working for Dr Farrell for many reasons. Primarily, I love the interaction with our patients and also working for a doctor with amazing integrity. Outside of Dr. Farrell’s office, I enjoy working my second job as a server, working with horses, learning violin, and continuing my education at Shasta College!
