Meet Our Team
When you walk into our office, you will be able to enjoy a magnificent view of the Chugach Mountain Range. We are in the process of remodeling our office and we are creating a dental space with tall ceilings and multiple windows to allow the local scenery to enhance your visit. We have seven fantastic team members which have been with us for quite some time. Our team focuses on getting to know you and addressing your overall wellbeing. You can learn more about them below, or call 907-248-6066 today for your appointment at our dental office in Anchorage, Alaska.
Barrie has been a part of our practice since 1997. She loves our patients since over time they become an extension of her family. Barrie listens to what our patients have to say about their goals for their smiles, and helps them understand their needs. She educates our patients and works with them to achieve optimal dental health.
Barrie and her husband have two daughters, one son and three grandchildren. Away from the office she enjoys yoga, hiking and cooking and spending time with her family and grandchildren.
Lori joined our practice in 2015. She is a long-time Alaskan and has lived here since 1975. She graduated from Bartlett High School in 1989. She earned her Associate of Applied Science degree at the University of Alaska Anchorage in 1997. In 2019 she received her Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene from OIT.
Lori enjoys being part of a top-notch, quality team, led by Dr. Frantz who focuses on providing conservative dentistry in a gentle way. She also says that her fellow hygienists, Barrie and Bri are excellent at what they do and that they deliver customized care to each patient. She feels blessed to work with them and to be able to follow their examples.
Lori has a blended family with daughter, son, stepdaughter and stepson, and six grandchildren. In her spare time, she looks forward to camping, traveling walking her two dogs and spending time with her family.
Mary has been with the team since 2011. Mary works hard to keep the business side of our practice flowing smoothly and takes the time to listen to the concerns and suggestions from her coworkers to improve our business practices and the experience for our patients.
Mary appreciates the concern our office has for our patients and the fact that everyone from Dr. Frantz to the people at the front desk tries to make each appointment as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
