Dr. Preece and his staff was very thorough with the procedures. Jane was very clear with the cost and the insurance paperwork. This is my dentist from now on.

The team at Healthy Smiles Dental is friendly, polite and caring. I went in for an extraction, and the whole experience went very well. There was so much care taken that even after the extraction I had no pain. My family has a new dentist in town!

What an exceptional dental practice, all the way from the front office to the back. The care and kindness they bestowed on our family was beyond expected and way above the typical dental office. If you are looking for a dental practice, look no further.

Great experience! I went in for a full exam after not being to a dentist in quite some time. I was extremely nervous about soft/painful spots on my teeth being poked and prodded. I also knew I needed a filling. The entire staff was really greathelping to calm my nerves and Dr. Preecedid a great, painless job on my fillings. Highly recommended!

My best experience yet with a dental appointment. Dr. Preece's exam was very professional, thorough and comprehensive. He took his time and explained everything...What was going on with my teeth and what my options were. It had been a few years since my last visit to a dentist so understandably I was very nervous and a little embarrassed, however the Dr. was nonjudgmental and understanding. I would say that it was the first time that I had felt completely relaxed...This coming from a white-knuck

Dr. Preeece & Emily were very professional, caring, and knowledgeable in their field. Being from Va. I had not been to a dentist yet in Alaska and they gave me a lasting positive experience that will keep me coming back as a regular patient. They will throughly explain your options so that you may decide how to best treat your teeth and be happy with your outcome. I highly recommend their office and team and will definitely keep them as my primary dentist in Alaska

My daughter is 7 years old and needed urgent dental care. Dr. Preece did a great job. I really liked how they explained all the options for her course of care. The paperwork was all in-line and easy to complete. They fit is right in and it was convenient. I would recommend them. I like that our whole family can get care all at one facility.

I went in for a cleaning and ended up needing a cavity filled. I have had cavities filled in the past at other clinics and it was a horrible, painful experience. However, Dr. Preece's work was fast and relatively painless. I would definitely recommend this clinic to a friend.

My 7 year old had a cavity for the first time and was very nervous about getting it filled. Dr. Preece & his hygienist took time & explained what they were going to do & let her watch a movie. They were very good with her! She is no longer afraid of going to the dentist and enjoys going.

This was my first visit to Dr. Preece's practice and I was very impressed. The exam was the most comprehensive I have ever had and I've been through the "new patient" process six times in my adult life looking for the right dental care provider. Dr. Preece was both professional and personable and he answered my questions openly and informatively without a hint of condensation. Tammy, who checked me in and out was very friendly and welcoming along with the rest of the staff I met. I love a good c
