Dr. Brett Johnson was born and raised in Fairbanks, where he spent his youth playing soccer, football, track, swimming, skiing and mountain biking. He left Fairbanks for two years as a missionary in Albania. He attended Brigham Young University, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in biology, and continued to pursue his educational goals at the University of Colorado, Denver.
Dr. Johnson is happily married to his wife, Lexi, and they have four wonderful children, Evy, Grant, Wells and Clive. They enjoy spending quality family time together, which includes camping, cooking and movie nights. The Johnsons love living in Alaska. They are amazed by the welcome feeling of this great community.
Dr. Johnson understands that dentistry is more than treating teeth. He listens to his patients, and together they formulate an oral health plan. He makes it a priority to stay knowledgeable in the ever-changing field of dentistry; as such, he earns more than five times the continuing education required by the state of Alaska. Dr. Johnson looks forward to meeting you as you keep Alaska Smiles your dental home.

Sara, our operations manager, recently joined forces with Alaska Smiles and came to us with 15 years of dental experience. Sara is passionate and competent when it comes to dental care; she was recognized as VIP Woman of the Year in 2016 by the National Association of Professional Women, as well as being the recipient of the 2017 Crown Council Team Member of the Year Award recognizing her for always going above and beyond the regular duty of care for her team and patients. Outside of dental care, she enjoys horseback riding, coaching and choreographing for competitive cheer teams, going to her family cabin on Big Lake, and spending time with her husband, daughter and two dogs. “My passion is taking care of patients and my team, I will always go the extra mile to answer any questions you have from insurance to dental treatment.”
Brook completed her dental assisting degree from UAA and started her dental career as a certified dental assistant in 2003. She then saw a future in dental hygiene, and in 2009, she completed her hygiene degree from UAA while in her ninth month of pregnancy! In 2013, Brook received a national award from the Crown Council for dental hygienist of the year. Her spirit and effect on her patients and team members is best described by an out of the office activity: her avid love of playing and watching hockey. Brook enjoys playing women’s hockey and occasionally has to spend time in the penalty box for playing rough when it is not allowed! She brings that same enthusiasm to the office every day. Brook is married to her husband, Gregg, and they have two children, Camden and Jordyn. She is very passionate about dentistry, and her patients feel like they are part of her family — so much that she gives out hugs regularly!
Jessica was born and raised in beautiful Guam. She met her husband and moved to Alaska in 2008, and together, they have a blended family of seven (six boys and one girl). Jessica is also a grandma (best thing ever)! She loves Alaska because of the endless beauty through all four seasons (though she thinks there are only three). She has been a dental assistant for over 25 years, and she really enjoys meeting patients and getting to know them. If they are nervous about being in the chair, she does her best to offer comfort and assurance that we will give them the best care. Jessica enjoys cooking, baking, spin cycling, and most of all, traveling. She works with a great team at Alaska Smiles, and she says it just couldn’t get any better.
Lyuba has been a dental assistant since 2000. She was born and raised in Russia and moved to Alaska in 2002. She is proud to say she became a U.S. citizen in 2004. Lyuba enjoys working in the dentistry field because it offers her the opportunity to help people. She finds it very rewarding to see people leave the office smiling and feeling good about themselves. She knows that every patient who leaves our office has the highest quality of dental care that is available today. Lyuba loves camping, hiking, working out and staying in shape, but most of all, spending time with family and friends. She is so proud to be a part of such a great team at Alaska Smiles.
