Jessica, Dental Hygienist
Jessica graduated from Loma Linda University in California with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. In 2011, she relocated to Alaska, and is proud to call such a beautiful state “home.”
As a dental hygienist, Jessica is gentle, yet thorough, providing each patient with the right start to great oral hygiene. She enjoys the calm atmosphere that Dr. Crosby has created in his office, and his passion for patient-focused dental care. Jessica said of working with Dr. Crosby, “He really takes the time to listen to our patients and adapt our treatment to their individual needs. I highly respect his philosophy on dentistry.”
Outside of the office, Jessica spends much of her free time camping and absorbing the natural beauty of the Alaskan landscape.
Jessica recommends each patient, “use your Sonicare twice a day and floss every night. If you’d like to try something new, consider a Waterpik or essential oil mouthwash.” Not only does this make her job easier, it also shortens your appointment time and helps keep your mouth healthy.
Jessica is always happy to answer any questions you may have about hygiene and oral health.
Alina, Treatment Coordinator
After nine years working as a certified medical assistant, Alina opted for a career change. Though she had originally pursued a degree in nursing, Alina felt the desire to work in a great dental office and thus began her career with Dr. Crosby, where she’s happy to help make patients smile.
Since joining the office, Alina has helped to foster and grow the respectful, caring environment that Dr. Crosby’s patients have come to expect and deserve. With Alina as part of the team, patients can feel comfortable and secure in the care they receive.
She not only assists Dr. Crosby in making CEREC crowns, she also helps patients schedule their treatment and manage their dental insurance. Her favorite part of her job is seeing how happy each patient is when they leave their appointments and knowing that they are cultivating happy, healthy smiles.
In her free time, she’s often with her family, though she confesses to being a basketball and Ultimate Fighting Championship fanatic!
