At Alpine Family Dentistry, we pride ourselves on offering modern dental technologies in a cozy and inviting dental office. From the moment you walk into our log cabin dental office, our friendly dental team, including our skilled dentist, Dr. Brett Kocherhans, will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. We are an understanding team of dental professionals who realize that visits to the dentist aren't always fun. For some people, dental appointments and procedures even cause anxiety. However, we try our best to make every visit to our office as pleasant as we can!
We love working with people of all ages, and we especially love serving the dental needs of families. Dr. Brett provides pediatric dentistry in our Eagle River office to better serve every member of your household's dental needs, which makes your dental appointments more convenient and easier to schedule. During your dental appointments, we will be eager to get to know you as a person, not just as a patient. Your smile is important to us, but we know you are more than a smile.
When you visit Alpine Family Dentistry, you will receive personalized and personable dental care. We look forward to meeting you!
Dr. Brett Kocherhans
I graduated in the inaugural class of the University of Utah School of Dentistry after earning a Bachelor’s degree summa cum laude from Utah Valley University. I chose a career in dentistry because it’s an exciting conglomeration of science and art, and I love seeing and getting to know my patients in beautiful Eagle River, AK.
My wife, Amie, was born and raised in Alaska. We live in Eagle River with our spunky daughter, Claire, and our smiley new son, Parker. For us, Alaska is home. I love the fresh air, the neighborly culture, and living so close to Amie’s family. In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors with my family, attending community events and festivals, and playing the guitar.
It is my highest priority to make all my patients feel like a part of our Alpine family. I believe every patient should feel respected, comfortable, and completely confident with their smile. I strive to provide gentle, quality dental care with a professional and personable attitude.
Nothing makes me happier than seeing my patients leave the office fully satisfied with their dental experience. I hope to see you soon!
Billing Coordinator/Dental Assistant
I’m a lifelong Alaskan and have been in Eagle River since 2006. I love Alaska and the outdoors! I spend most of my time with my husband, Kevin, and our daughters, Sofie and Quinn. Hockey is my sport and the winter holidays are my favorite time of the year. I enjoy reading, writing, and all things creative/DIY. I also enjoy new adventures and experiences!
I’ve been in the dental field since 2016 and absolutely love it. I enjoy meeting new patients, and I do my best to make their visits pleasant and comfortable. As the billing coordinator, I will also help you make the best use of your dental benefits. I can’t wait to help you get the best dental care possible!
Registered Dental Hygienist
My husband and I moved to Alaska from Oregon in 2018 when he was given the opportunity to open a wheel and tire shop in Anchorage. In the three years we have been here, we have truly fallen in love with this beautiful state. My husband recently got his pilot license. In our spare time, we love to explore Alaska from the sky above. We have a little girl who is full of life and keeps us on our toes!
Before graduating from dental hygiene school in 2016, I was a dental assistant for five years. I absolutely love what I do and pride myself on building trustworthy relationships with my patients, which helps me provide them with the best care possible. My favorite part of working in dental care is seeing the difference I make in patients' oral healthcare.
Registered Dental Hygienist
My name is Nicole. I was born and raised in Southern California. I moved to Alaska in 1999 to be closer to my husband’s family. I have been in the dental field since 1998 and started as a dental assistant and moved on to a scheduling coordinator. I graduated from Concorde Career College for dental hygiene in 2014 with honors. Serving my community as a dental hygienist has been a lifelong goal and has been achieved with success. I am an enthusiastic hygienist and will go out of my way to exceed my patient’s expectations.
I have two daughters, Joselyn and Tessa, and have been married to my husband Tony since 2000. I enjoy reading, cooking, going on nature walks, gardening, trips to Disneyland, and spending quality time with my family.
I was raised in Eagle River, Alaska. I graduated from the UAA Dental Assisting Program, and I’m so glad to be part of a growing, caring, professional family practice. As a dental assistant, I help people improve their oral health. I enjoy providing patients with the best care possible while making them feel comfortable. My favorite part of the dental field is getting to know patients, seeing them smile, and knowing I made a difference in their lives.
In my spare time, I enjoy camping, fishing, four-wheeling, hiking with my family, and exploring all the beauty Alaska has to offer. I look forward to seeing you in our office.
