Dr. Chelsea Baraff and Boyfriend Tony
Welcome to 7 Peaks Dental! I am excited to be here in Bend and to get to know each and every
one of you.
I am born and raised in Lake Havasu City, AZ. I come from a small family who values education
and pursuing dreams as I am a third-generation doctor (along with my older brother in Seattle)
and a second-generation dentist, following in my father’s footsteps. My mother has worked in a
dental office, currently as an office manager as well as previously in the back office, for almost
45 years. Being raised in a household of constant “tooth talk” is what sparked my interest in the
field at a young age. I do not recall any other career path being an option since the young age of
eight! I am a family person and they are my number one priority with my niece being the
highlight of my life. I remained in Arizona close to my family through most of my life by
continuing to undergrad at the University of Arizona in Tucson and then to Midwestern
University-College of Dental Medicine in Phoenix. I moved to Oregon in 2013 to the beautiful
city of Portland. Over my time here, I have learned that my hobbies vary seasonally in the
Pacific Northwest. During the winter I enjoy snowboarding and cannot wait to get into
snowmobiling; while in the summer months, I am usually on the water behind a boat wake-
surfing or on the course bettering my golf game. I am ecstatic about the wealth of outdoor
opportunities Bend has to offer! My quiet time at home involves cuddling with my three-pound
Yorkshire terrier Beso while watching Netflix or cooking alongside the love of my life Tony.
When I get the chance to do so, my greatest passion is traveling. Most of our travel time lately
has been spent in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where I can practice my Spanish speaking and eat
tacos and chilaquiles every day!
In the previous five years, I have been greatly involved with the community of Portland metro
area through my membership in the Multnomah County Dental Society attending events,
continuing education and volunteer work as well as sitting as a delegate for my component
chapter of the Oregon Board of Dentistry. I have also participated for multiple years in the Oregon
Mission of Mercy providing life-changing oral health care to patients that have barriers to oral
health care. I have now become a member of the Central Oregon Dental Society and am
enthusiastic about becoming an integral part of this new community as well.
