Patients, friends, and other members of our dental family:
We are proud to announce that Dr. Kendall Skinner has joined our practice as of late June.
Dr. Kendall Skinner has always considered himself a resident of Alaska. Even when away, he has longed to return to his beloved home. After practicing dentistry in Alaska for ten years, he spent a few years practicing in Colorado, returning home as often as he could. And happily, we now have him as a member of our office.
A Wandering Alaskan
Dr. Kendall (as he prefers to be called) lived in Kyushu, Japan, from 1992-94. He became proficient in the Japanese language and grew to love both the people and their culture.
Dr. Kendall received his DDS from Temple University School of Dentistry in 2004. As part of his education in 2003, he did an externship for the Indian Health Service in Bethel, Alaska.
Dr. Kendall loves dentistry and the close relationships he has developed with people in the community. He is happy for the opportunity dentistry provides to serve the community on a daily basis and the privilege of utilizing his artistic talents to influence positive change in their lives.
A Family Man and Outdoorsman
When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Kendall loves taking part in the outdoor pastimes which Alaska affords with his wife, three sons, and daughter. They enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, and playing in the snow. When Dr. Kendall’s not participating in bodybuilding competitions, he also enjoys football, basketball, and cheering for the underdogs in the NBA and NFL finals.
Joining Excellence in Dentistry
Dr. Kendall decided to join Excellence in Dentistry because of the profound respect he has for Dr. Kirk Johnson. He admires the leading practice that Dr. Johnson has built, and his dedication to quality treatment through the use of advanced technology. Excellence in Dentistry has long been an Alaska pioneer in many areas of dentistry, including laser dentistry, implant dentistry, and neuromuscular dentistry.
Dr. Kendall hopes to learn from Dr. Johnson’s training and experience while bringing his own unique insight to the practice. He also hopes to help keep Excellence in Dentistry at the leading edge of the industry, introducing new techniques such as IV sedation and advanced oral surgery such as wisdom tooth removal and All-on-4 dental implants.
If you would like to take advantage of the unique combination of experience and training at Excellence in Dentistry in Anchorage, please call (907) 349-0022 today for an appointment with Dr. Johnson or Dr. Kendall Skinner.
