MEET THE ALPINE FAMILY DENTISTRY TEAM

Dr Brett Kocherhans

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 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 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!

Nicole

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 out 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 life long 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.

Rachael

Registered Dental Hygienist

My husband and I moved here to Alaska from Oregon in 2018 when he was given the opportunity to open a wheel and tire shop in Anchorage. In the two years since we have been here we have truly fallen in love with this beautiful state. My husband recently got his pilot license so 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 dental hygiene school in 2016, I was a dental assistant for five years. I absolutely love what I do and pride myself in building trustworthy relationships with my patients.
