Jessica Sablan

Dental Assistant

Hello, my name is Jessica. I was born and raised in beautiful Guam. I met my husband and moved to Alaska in 2008, together we have a blended family of 7 (6 boys and 1 girl our oldest is 29 and youngest is 19).

I love Alaska because of the endless beauty through all 4 seasons; although I think there’s only 3. I’ve been a dental assistant for 25 plus years. I really enjoy meeting patients and getting to know them. If they are nervous about being in the chair, I do my best to offer comfort and assurance that we will give them the best care. I enjoy cooking, baking, spin cycling @ AYC, and most of all traveling. I work with a great team at Alaska Smiles, it just couldn’t get any better.

I am a grandma (Best thing ever!)
