Dr. Alder's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Alder "I graduated in 2000, with honors, from the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco. I began practicing dentistry with my father, Dr. Francis Alder. I had the privilege of working closely with my father for four years before purchasing the practice. I am a Clark County native. I was raised in Ridgefield, WA, where I became an Eagle Scout and graduated from Ridgefield High School . I have three children; Ashley, Aubrey and Nickolas. I enjoy spending time with them and doing active / outdoor things like hiking, backpacking, skiing or boating. I enjoy continuing my education as a Dentist and treating patients who need crowns with CEREC, same day crowns, and I'm also educated in Sleep Apnea and often make appliances to wear at night. It is very important to me that my patients think of me not just as their dentist or a health care provider but also as a member of the community. I believe that signs and slogans look good but providing the best possible care for my patients and being able to stand behind my work is what is most fulfilling."

Came in with sensitivity in a tooth. Dr Alder wound up doing a crown that cost $1600. During the crown procedure, there was quite a bit of pain.

Brian keeps up to date on all the latest methods, is highly competent, and takes time to answer questions and...Read More

Dr. Alder is the best dentist I've ever had. I recently got my husband to switch over to Dr. Alder and he agrees that the dental care and office atmosphere are superior. The entire staff is top notch and I get excellent care.
