Welcome to the Family!
Get to Know Our Team
Meet our Dentist!
Dr. Dustin Wilde grew up mainly in Canada but learned to speak Japanese fluently during the 3 years he spent in Japan. He gained valuable experience with communication and compassion while serving a two-year religious mission in New York, NY. He met his wife, Jennie, while attending Brigham Young University. They have four daughters who absolutely light up their life! After receiving a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience at BYU, Dr. Dustin received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Boston University. Shortly thereafter, the Wildes moved to Alaska, intending to have a one-year “experience.” They quickly fell in love with the community and plan to be a part of it for many years to come!
Dr. Dustin engages in continuing education every year to expand his expertise and keep up with the latest advances in the dental field. His top priority is your comfort and he strives to ensure that you have a stress-free, comfortable experience each time you visit our practice.
We offer over 50 years of combined experience to provide the best in preventative care.

Angela felt part of the family here from the moment she stepped in the door and enjoys the professionalism and camaraderie of the whole practice. In her spare time, Angela loves tending to her 2 kids with 4 paws each, growing her own fruit and vegetable garden, hovering over her lush lawn and landscaping, reading and contemplating important philosophical issues, watching old movies and documentaries, traveling whenever she can, and doting on her best friends who’ve adopted her into their families.
