MEET THE ALPINE FAMILY DENTISTRY TEAM

Dr. Brett Kocherhans DDS

My name is 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.

My wife, Amie, was born and raised here in Alaska. We live in Eagle River with our spunky 2-year-old named Claire and we have a baby boy on the way. 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 every patient 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 experience. I hope to see you soon!

Maya

Scheduling Coordinator

Hey y’all! My name is Maya and I was raised in Edmond, Oklahoma. I attended Oklahoma State University for my bachelor’s degree and went overseas to the gorgeous country of Scotland to get my master’s degree. I spent several years traveling the world after that, living in Italy while exploring what Europe, Asia, and Africa have to offer.

Once I returned to the States, I settled in Georgia and worked at an oral surgeon’s office, falling in love with the dental field and the positive impacts it can have. I also met the love of my life and we decided to move to the beautiful state of Alaska when he was offered a lucrative job opportunity in Anchorage. We now live in Eagle River with our rescue dog, Diesel, and are expecting our first son in March.

You’ll find me at the front desk, ready to assist with any scheduling and billing questions you may have!
