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!)


Dental Assistant

My name is Lyuba. I’ve been a dental assistant since 2000. I was born and raised in Russia. I moved to Alaska in 2002. I am proud to say I became a U.S. citizen in 2004. I enjoy working in the dentistry field because it offers me the opportunity to help people. I find it very rewarding to see people leave the office smiling and feeling good about themselves. I know that every patient that leaves our office have the highest quality of dental care that is available today. I love camping, hiking, working out and staying in shape but most of all spending time with family and friends. I am so proud to be apart of such a great team at Alaska Smiles.



Since birth, Alaska has been home. I love that each season presents me with a new challenge. I love fishing, camping, and hiking in the summer, hunting with my dad in the fall and snow machining in the winter months. In 2015 I earned my Associates of Applied Science degree through Minnesota State University. I love that dentistry connects me with people and puts me in the position to educate and encourage others to improve their own health.
