Marie Greer, RDH

Hello, my name is Marie and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist.  I attended the University of Louisville School of Dentistry where I received a Bachelor's of Science in Dental hygiene.  Upon completion I was commissioned into the United States Public Health Service, where I served three years before deciding to scale back a little on work to have more time with my three beautiful children.  I have been a hygienist for 10 years now and love having a job that allows me to work one-on-one with people. When I am not working, I love to take my kiddos swimming, go on bike rides or just play outside, and we love to go to the gym together.  Advocating oral health is a passion of mine.

Hi, my name is Kathy and I work the Front Desk/Insurance Department at Denali Dental. I have been in the dental field for over 15 years. I moved from South Carolina to Alaska 3 ½ years ago to be closer to my daughter, son-in-law and two beautiful grandchildren.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing with my grandchildren, hiking and taking in all the beauty and adventure that Alaska has to offer.

Amy - Dental Assistant

Born and raised in Washington State, I took a short detour to California and then moved up to Alaska for what I thought would be a year. That was in 1992 and now I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I’ve been working in the dental field over 35 years. In 1999 I started working at Denali Dental Care with Dr. Warren. I’ve made many friends with our patients over the years. I always try to make each patient’s appointment as comfortable and pleasant as possible. I love to read, spend time with my Alaskan family and root on my Seattle Seahawks, usually while being ruled by my bossy cat, Thomas.
