Dr. Polis' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Polis "Hi, my name is Dr. Susan Polis I have been involved with Dentistry since 1980 in the State of Alaska. I graduated from the University of Minnesota in Dental Hygiene that year and immediately moved to Alaska and began providing preventive care in many areas such as Anchorage, Seward, Valdez, Dutch Harbor, King Cove, Sand Point and Glennallen. I love Alaska and eventually found a full time position in Homer, Alaska where I worked from 1985-1990 as a registered Dental Hygienist. In 1990, I decided to go further and began my journey to become a Dentist. I went to the University of Anchorage, Alaska and took a few requirements and refresher classes to pass the Dental Admission Test (DAT). I was accepted to Loma Linda University School in Loma Linda, California in 1993 and graduated in 1997 with a Doctorate in Dental Surgery. Since graduation, I have had practices in Yakutat, Barrow and Homer. I now spend most of my time in Homer where I live 3 weeks each month, and 1 week a month I am in Barrow providing high quality dental services. I absolutely love the field of dentistry and helping people to achieve their dream smiles. As a member of the American Dental Society, Alaska Dental Society, and Academy of General Dentistry, I keep up with all of the newest innovations in the field. I recently underwent training at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies in neuromuscular, aesthetic and implant dentistry and am committed to providing excellent, caring dentistry, In my spare time, I enjoy fishing, boating, and bowling. I have been an avid skier, both in snow and water most of my life, and enjoy camping and winter snowmachine trips as well. My proudest achievement is my ability to provide friendly and quality care to my patients in Homer and Barrow and I have the most EXCELLENT Dental Team to work with!"
