Dr. Willis' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Willis "Heather Willis has split her time between Alaska and Colorado. She was born in Denver, but moved to Delta Junction when she was in 2nd grade. Once she graduated high school, she attended both undergraduate school and dental school in Colorado, where she graduated from the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine in 2004. She then went on to complete a 1-year General Practice Residency at the University of Colorado Hospital and then worked for Dental Aid, a not-for-profit dental clinic in Louisville and Longmont, CO. After having her second child, Heather moved back to Interior Alaska and took a position as the Dental Director for Interior Community Health Center in Fairbanks. In 2010, she joined the long established office of Dr James Cerney, which she purchased in December of 2010. Heather is a tripartite member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Alaska Dental Society (ADS) and North Central District Dental Society (NCDDS). She served as the President of the NCDDS from 2010 to 2011. She went on to serve as Secretary of the ADS (2011 to 2012), President-Elect (2012 to 2013), President (2013 to 2014), and Immediate Past President until October, 2015. She was voted to serve as the Alaska Dental Society Delegate to the ADA for a term of two years (2015 to 2017). At the national level, Heather was chosen to represent the 11th District to serve on the ADA Council on Membership (2015 to 2019).
