General Dentistry

Keep your smile healthy and bright with the dental care services available at Lane Family Dental in Wasilla, AK. We provide a full range of general dental services to help you create and maintain excellent oral health.

Dental CLEANINGS & CHECKUPS

Many people are not aware of the importance of getting regular dental checkups and having their teeth cleaned professionally every six months. Good oral health and general dentistry are critical parts of your overall well-being. We all want to have a beautiful smile. That requires a real commitment to the care of your teeth and gums.

At Lane Family Dental, we are committed to helping you maintain the best oral health possible. We provide you with cleanings and checkups on a regular basis, and we send reminders so you can keep that appealing smile for years to come.

Brushing and flossing are very important. To keep plaque and tartar from building up and causing gum problems you also need professional cleanings. We will provide you with a professional cleaning that removes plaque and tartar from your teeth, leaving them feeling smooth and looking great!

From the time the first tooth comes in, dental exams are a vital part of your oral health. Not only do we provide the monitoring and care you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy, we ensure you and your children are cleaning and flossing their teeth properly. Knowing how to keep your teeth and gums clean is extremely important.

Our dental checkups utilize the latest high-tech instruments so that we catch dental decay and other problems before they become serious issues. Cavities and gum disease are just a few things that can negatively impact your oral health.

At Lane Family Dental, we pay attention to more than the obvious problems. Comprehensive dental exams look at the soft tissues of your mouth. An oral cancer screening is a fast, painless check that can save your life. Oral cancers are among the easiest to treat if they are discovered early.

With children, we also look for budding problems with teeth alignment. Sometimes potential problems can be easily avoided with early minor interventions.

Dr. Lane and his team of dental professionals are committed to ensuring that all Lane Family Dental patients have the best opportunities for optimum oral health. Contact us today for an appointment and bring your family to us for a thorough and comprehensive dental exam and professional cleaning.

CRACKED TOOTH REPAIR

When a tooth becomes cracked, the repairs can be as simple as bonding it back together or as complex as having the tooth crowned. Only a thorough exam will reveal the best method for repairing the tooth. Scheduling an examination right away is critical in order to prevent further damage and compromising your oral health.

Early diagnosis of a damaged tooth is important. Neglecting a damaged tooth can lead to more problems, even loss of the tooth. Even with an early diagnosis, there is no guarantee that a cracked tooth can be saved. Dr. Lane will do a thorough exam and suggest a course of action to restore your smile.

Bonding a tooth is one of the simplest repairs. All that is required is applying bonding material to fuse the pieces together again. If more extensive work is required, you will be advised of all the options.

A damaged tooth may or may not cause you discomfort. Symptoms can be a mild annoyance when you bite down or let up, to severe pain or throbbing when you ingest hot or cold beverages or food. Not all cracks are visible to the eye. If you are experiencing symptoms or believe that you may have a cracked tooth, contact Lane Family Dental today. Ignoring a cracked tooth will only lead to greater problems.

DENTAL CROWNS

A tooth that has been weakened due to damage, decay, or some other factor can often be strengthened with a dental crown. A crown is a cover made to fit over the top of the tooth. It is generally made from metal, porcelain fused to metal or some other durable material. The crown completely covers the portion of the tooth above the gum line. This is used to protect the tooth from further damage and provide strength for the tooth.

Teeth that have undergone root canal therapy are generally candidates for dental crowns. Without the nerve supplying nutrients to the tooth, it can become brittle and therefore susceptible to breaking or cracking. A dental crown can prevent this from happening. Teeth that have large fillings over two or more sides may be crowned for strength and stability as well.

Cracked or damaged teeth are covered with a crown to prevent further injury to the tooth. When bonding a tooth together is not an option, or the bonding will not prevent the tooth from being re-injured, the best solution may be a dental crown.

When a tooth has a large filling, sometimes a crown is needed to provide stability and strength to keep it from breaking. In some situations, a filling may be large, but not warrant the use of a crown. Under these circumstances, a dental inlay or onlay may be the better choice.

Like crowns, inlays and onlays are made from metal – usually a gold alloy, porcelain fused to metal, or a ceramic or resin material. They do not require as much loss of healthy tooth structure as a regular filling. They are made to fit directly into the space that requires filling and they are cemented into place. Onlays and inlays provide strength and protection for the tooth.

If you have a damaged tooth that may require a crown, contact Lane Family Dental today to schedule a consultation.

GUM DISEASE

In the early stages of gum disease, interventions are mild and highly successful. Usually, a thorough deep cleaning of the teeth and gums will stop gingivitis. Sometimes a special mouthwash or toothpaste may be prescribed to help the healing process.

Addressing gum disease early with general dentistry is essential for good oral health. It also prevents the disease from causing extensive damage to your gums and teeth. Left untreated, gum disease will eventually lead to the loss of teeth. It has also been linked to several major health issues. Staying healthy and keeping your gums healthy to prevent gum disease is always the best course of action.

Early symptoms of gum disease can be puffy and bright pink or red gums. There may be bleeding when you brush or floss. Your breath may smell bad and some people experience pain when they chew. If you notice your gums are receding, have them examined as this can also be an indication of gum disease.

One of the main causes of gum disease is poor oral hygiene. At Lane Family Dental, we ensure that every patient is aware of the proper care of teeth and gums. We provide you with information so you can be sure you know how to brush and floss properly. These two activities will help prevent gum disease. However, there are other risk factors that contribute to gum disease.

Those who smoke are more likely to get gum disease. Certain medications and illnesses, such as diabetes or autoimmune diseases, can make you more susceptible. Changes in hormonal levels in women and girls can cause the gums to be more sensitive, leaving them vulnerable. Genetics can also be a factor in a person’s predisposition toward gum disease.

If you suspect you may have gum disease, contact our office today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Lane.

HALITOSIS TREATMENT

Halitosis, or bad breath, may not seem important until it becomes chronic. Many people are not even aware they have the problem. In fact, over 50 million people in this country have halitosis. Bad breath affects the people around you and can have an adverse effect on your social life.

Have you noticed that fewer people want to engage you in conversation? People may begin to back up when you talk to them. While someone’s reaction to bad breath may seem somewhat humorous, the fact is, when you need to represent your company or are in public settings, halitosis can be a serious obstacle. The good news is, there are effective general dentistry treatments available.

Halitosis can be caused by a number of factors. The most obvious reason is lack of good oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing your teeth will keep your mouth feeling and smelling fresh. Proper care of your teeth and gums eliminates the oral bacteria that cause breath odor. However, if you practice good oral hygiene and still have bad breath, decaying teeth could be the problem. Gum disease and gastric problems can also result in bad breath.

Proteins in the mouth are broken down by bacteria and this reaction causes the odor. The by-products of this reaction are large amounts of Sulphur compounds which build up on the back of the tongue. Sometimes people brush their tongues or use tongue scrapers to keep the buildup from occurring.

Treatment options depend on the cause of your halitosis. Good oral hygiene eliminates most minor problems with bad breath. Using a quality mouthwash or toothpaste can also help. If the problem persists, having your mouth examined for other causes is the next step. You may have undiagnosed dental problems. If there does not seem to be a cause relating to oral issues, you will be advised to contact your primary care physician. Your problem may originate from other issues, such as gastric problems. Contact Lane Family Dental today to schedule an appointment regarding our treatment options for halitosis.

PERIODONTAL THERAPY

Gum disease, or periodontitis, is a serious condition that compromises your oral health. Periodontitis can lead to the loss of teeth. It has also been linked to other serious health issues, so early treatment with general dentistry is vital to your overall health.

Periodontitis begins with the buildup of plaque, a clear sticky substance that soon hardens into tartar on the teeth. These deposits begin to push the gums away from the teeth. As they do so, small pockets from where food and bacteria can collect. These areas are very difficult to clean. Gums get swollen and may begin to bleed. As the body’s natural defense system kicks in to fight the bacteria, toxins are formed that irritate the gums, even more, an infection develops.

Periodontal therapy is the only way to keep it from getting worse and causing tooth loss. When Dr. Lane examines your teeth and gums, he will make a determination regarding the best way to treat the disease. Treatment options will depend on the severity of the problem.

When the gums are infected, the natural response of the body is to fight back. Because toxins are produced as a result, the infection can become worse. Depending on the degree of infection, antibiotics may be prescribed. A thorough cleaning of the teeth is required and surgical repair of the gums may or may not be part of the treatment process. Home care will be important, as well as keeping regular dental appointments. You may receive a special mouthwash or toothpaste to help with the healing process.

Special instruments are used to clean away the plaque and tartar buildup which caused the disease. Hand scaling instruments or ultrasonic scalers are used to remove the buildup. When the tartar has been removed, the roots of the teeth are smoothed with planing instruments. Smoothing the roots will provide a better surface for the gums to reattach.

Our dentist may also provide you with additional instructions and suggestions to aid the healing process and prevent a reoccurrence of the disease. Contact Lane Family Dental today to schedule an appointment for yourself or a member of your family.

ROOT CANAL THERAPY

No one wants to experience the pain of an infected tooth. When you do, your first thought may be to have the tooth pulled immediately, just so you can get relief. However, there is a general dental treatment to relieve the pain and save the tooth. Root canal therapy provides pain relief while leaving your tooth intact.

Root canal therapy (RCT) is a procedure that involves cleaning out the infected tooth and sealing the nerve canal so that bacteria can no longer have access. Decay begins on the outside of the tooth as a small hole. As bacteria work producing acids that eat away the tooth enamel, the hole gets larger and deeper until the decay finally reaches the inner part of the tooth.

This next layer is called the dentin. Much softer than the outer enamel, the dentin allows the decay to move through quickly and, unless the cavity is cleaned out and filled, the decay will move on to the pulp. This is where the nerves of the tooth are located. At this point, hot and cold foods and beverages may cause great discomfort. Some people experience pain while chewing food.

When the pulp becomes infected, it begins to die and an abscess forms at the apex of the root of the tooth. The abscess causes swelling and additional discomfort. RCT removes the dying nerve tissue from the tooth.

RCT does not cause pain as many people believe. The infection, abscess, and swelling are actually the source of the pain. With RCT, the nerve of the tooth is removed. The root canal is then carefully cleaned out and sealed off so that bacteria can no longer enter. The tooth is then filled with an appropriate filling material. Because the tooth is now essentially dead, a crown may be needed to provide strength and protection.

Before you decide to remove a tooth due to the pain you are experiencing, contact Lane Family Dental to schedule a consultation and let Dr. Lane examine it. He may be able to save your tooth while providing you the pain relief you seek.

SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT

Waking up in the morning with a headache is not a healthy way to begin your day. You may not be aware, but this could mean you suffer from sleep apnea. Patients who have sleep apnea often wake up feeling exhausted. This is the body’s response to the lack of sleep from an abnormal sleep pattern.

Sleep apnea patients suffer from constantly waking up during the night due to pauses in breathing. The pauses can last from just a few seconds to minutes. Bed partners often wake up the sleep apnea patient because they wait for a breath that seems like it will never come. The pauses interfere with your sleep and they cause the brain to receive less oxygen, which in turn causes headaches.

If you suffer from sleep apnea you are not getting the restorative sleep you need to be fully functional during the day. Instead, you are consistently being moved into the lighter sleep cycle. This happens throughout the night leaving you exhausted and unrested in the morning. Fortunately, there are measures that can be taken to help you sleep better.

At Lane Family Dental, we can diagnose the problem and create a treatment plan that will have you sleeping restfully in no time. Getting a correct diagnosis and proper treatment will restore the energy that you miss.

Sleep apnea patients often snore during sleep. This also affects your sleep partner. Snoring can keep other people awake or make it difficult for them to stay asleep. We can help you stop snoring and sleep better. Through the use of a night guard mouth appliance, your snoring will cease and you and your partner can finally have a restful night’s sleep.

The night guard holds the jaw in a position that prevents the collapse of the soft palate at the back of the mouth. While sleeping your muscles relax, and for those with sleep apnea and snoring problems, the muscles at the back of the mouth relax, allowing the tissues of the soft palate to collapse and cause snoring.

Contact Lane Family Dental if you suffer from sleep apnea or snoring. Let Dr. Lane diagnose your problem and create a plan to get you sleeping peacefully again.

TMJ & TMD TREATMENT

The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research has determined that there are over 10 million people tormented by the discomfort of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ/TMD). Research also shows that the majority of TMJ sufferers are female.

For some individuals, the discomfort is not long lasting. In many cases, it resolves on its own. For these people, the occasional pain they experience may come in cycles and leave without any type of general dentistry treatment. Minor treatment such as learning how to do certain exercises may be all that is required to treat patients who have ongoing problems. These patients often experience relief from

There are other patients who may have a more chronic disorder causing more pain. Their symptoms are more severe and may require more aggressive interventions. Dr. Lane is experienced in diagnosing and treating patients who suffer from TMJ/TMD.

Proper diagnosis of the condition is important. Depending on the severity of the disorder, you may only need to learn the exercises that help relieve pain. If more extensive treatment is required, Dr. Lane will let you know and will tell you about your options.

Jaw pain can be the result of TMD/TMJ or it can have other causes such as clenching or grinding the teeth. An exam and a few questions will pinpoint the source of the problem. Once the source has been determined, Dr. Lane can then prescribe a treatment plan to get you on the road to recovery.

If you are experiencing jaw pain, or discomfort in your shoulders, neck, and head, and cannot find a reasonable explanation for it, contact Lane Family Dental today to make an appointment with Dr. Lane. You could be suffering from TMJ/TMD. Come in and find out if we can help relieve the discomfort that is plaguing you.

TOOTH EXTRACTIONS

With proper oral hygiene and regular general dentistry, your teeth were meant to last throughout your lifetime, so losing a tooth is not something to take lightly. However, when all resources have been expended and the only choice left is extraction, there is no better place to have your extraction performed than in the calm, relaxing office of Lane Family Dentistry. We want all our patients to experience the best in oral health, and sometimes that means extracting a tooth.

You will appreciate the gentle touch and compassion you will experience here at Lane Family Dental. We understand how upsetting it can be to lose a tooth. We also understand the concerns people have regarding tooth extraction. The process will be explained to you so you will know what to expect, before, during and after the extraction.

In addition to our gentle way of working with patients, the relaxing atmosphere, and amenities we provide for your comfort, we also offer sedation for those with dental anxiety. A tooth extraction need not be an ordeal. Your comfort is important to us, and we do our best to help you relax and feel calm.

During the late teen years or early twenties, the last of the permanent teeth erupt. These are the wisdom teeth, the last four molars in the back of your mouth. For some people, wisdom teeth pose no problem at all. There is plenty of room for them to come in and they grow straight. Other people may not be so fortunate.

In fact, many people have discomfort with the eruption of their wisdom teeth. These molars are known to come in crooked, sideways, and they often push up against the neighboring teeth. Most people have their wisdom teeth removed because of the discomfort. If you need to have your wisdom teeth removed, contact Lane Family Dental today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Lane. He has the expertise and skill to remove the most stubborn wisdom teeth.

I can only say great and amazing things about Lane Family Dental. The staff is totally wonderful and are welcoming when you step though the door. Dr. Lane is a great dentist, I had my previous dentist for close to 20 years and unfortunately he pasted away and I was in need of finding a whole new dental practice. I was referred to Lane Family Dental by a friend and it has been a great match for me. Love Dr. Lane's humor and outgoing personality. A truely great team!

Very comfy waiting area and front office staff who made us feel right at home. All the staff was very friendly and answered all our questions and explained everything thoroughly. Dr Lane was down to earth and easy to talk to, had a great bedside manner with my teenage boys. He spent time with us and did not make us feel rushed. He had the technology to find answers to concerns. Most importantly for our busy family, scheduling was easy and accommodating to our schedules! So glad we made the change.

Like most people I don't like going to the dentist. However, Everytime I've seen Dr. Lane and his team it's been a wonderful experience. The way they treat you as well as the upfront honesty and clear non judgment makes for a feeling of comfort I've never had in the medical field. While I may not be able to afford everything at once they have excellent payment options and extremely fair prices that they let you know ahead of time and honor throughout. I will continue to go back and refer everyone I know!

My 5 year old son is so happy with his new smile! I was having trouble with cavities on his front teeth and did not know what to do. Dr. Lane filled them in and my sons speech improved as well!! My two year old didn’t have an appointment but let her sit in the dentist chair for a moment. She had fun watching him show off some of the tools and the little preview of the cartoons.

I hadn’t had regular care since 2020 and was a bit nervous to seek a new provider. Lane Family Dental made me feel welcomed from my initial call for an appointment to walking out the door of my first visit. I love how personable each staff member was. Celia you rocked it! Make sure to come with a sense of humor. Dr.Lane had me laughing as soon as he walked in the exam area. Already scheduled my six month! Get your teeth checked people!

I originally went to a different dentist for years and I’ve had issues getting an appointment with them for the past year. I decided it was time to fined a different dentist. Lane Family Dental came to mind as I had heard of them in the past and drive past them daily. It was easy to get an appointment and they didn’t ask to reschedule an hour before (previous dentist did twice in a row). Everyone was extremely kind and I look forward to being a long term patient of theirs. I highly recommend them.

Glad I finally found a dentist that’s patient, caring, and understanding with people who have avoided being seen due to past bad experiences; without feeling judged as well! You can tell the staff are happy, plus they love to joke and have fun. Can’t beat watching your favorite show while having dental work done too. Definitely learning to love the dentist again!

I have avoided getting dental work done for years because of problems getting numb and experiencing intense pain during procedures. I just got a root canal from Dr. Lane this morning and it was virtually painless. They have nitrous gas for helping with anxiety and the staff and Dr. Lane are very friendly and positive. I actually had to have him stop for a second because he made me laugh while he was working on my teeth. That has never happened at any dentist I’ve ever been to before!

Lane family dental made it possible for me to be able to see a dentist without a panic attack. After years avoiding the dentist due to childhood trauma I was forced to seek care due to some pain and damage with my teeth. Dr. Lane was funny and made me feel very comfortable during my appointment, Riley the dental assistant offered me a weighted blanket to help soothe my nerves during my exam and made sure to make my X-rays quick easy and accurate. During my cleaning I was offered the weighted blanket again as well as Netflix with headphone and sunglasses for the light, Celia was very communicative which on top of the other accommodations helped to ease my nerves and made the appointment go by quick and fairly painless. The dentist is still probably my least favorite appointment on the list, however Dr Lane and his team made it so the thought of going in doesn’t cause a panic attack. Thank you so so much

Tamara (dental assistant) and Dr. Lane made me feel very comfortable during my extraction. The two work well together and had a great chair side manner and explained everything very well before proceeding. Dr. Lane was gentle and kept checking with me to make sure I was numb enough before moving on to the next step. Tamara was great from the start, she definitely set the tone for the appointment and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Lane and Tamara didn’t make me feel like I was being rushed out the door so they could get someone else in the chair, I truly felt their full attention. Thank you for a great experience 10/10 would recommend!

Well, Dr. Lane and his staff hit it out of the park AGAIN.

I love these guys. The BEST dentist I’ve ever had.If you’re looking for a dentist.... STOP looking! This is where you need to go. True professionals with very caring personalities and a well-centered compass for customer service.I look forward to continuing my dental Care with Dr. Lane and his staff.

Dr. Lane and his dental assistant Jackie were absolutely lovely! I have extreme dental fears and they explained everything that they were doing before or as they did it and gave me my treatment options in an understandable order and plan. It was a great first visit and while I don't look forward to our next visit, I still plan on coming back.

Super friendly, clean and beautiful office. Got the job done quickly and didn’t try and sell me on needing any work or extra products.

Relatively new to the area and someone HIGHLY recommended Lane Family Dental. Well, after my amazing experience as a new patient there today, I couldn’t agree more with the recommendation I was given.From the minute I stepped in the office, the customer service was outstanding. Kathy, at the front desk, Celia, Emily and Dr. Lane were so nice, courteous, answered all questions and most importantly their attention to detail was beyond reproach.I’ve been to several dentists in my lifetime and this has been the best experience. Kuddos to Celia....... the best dental hygienist I’ve encountered. Soft hands and amazing techniques displayed throughout my cleaning today. Dr. Lane, was a pleasure to interact with.If you’re looking for a dentist.... STOP looking! This is where you need to go. True professionals with very caring personalities and a well-centered compass for customer service.I look forward to continuing my dental Care with Dr. Lane and his staff.

Well, I’ve been to a number of Dental offices and let me tell you... Dr. Lane was recommended to me by a trustworthy person and I couldn’t be happier about the advice given to me! The front desk... felt like I was coming home for the holidays! The Hygienist was gentle, kind and quite entertaining and then the follow up, Dr. Lane... good guy, even though he had semi bad news to give me, he broke it down In a way I understood and without causing panic! I am highly recommending Lane Family Dentistry for any individual that may be thinking of switching offices or just want to get in to the dentist for the first time ever!

I had such bad tooth pain. Dr. Lane was able to see me within 2 hours and had me promptly scheduled for a procedure the following day. My pain level was extremely high but his humor and his really supportive and kind staff had me very relaxed. He made sure I was 100% pain free, extremely comfortable, and in good spirits before preforming the procedure. Their state of the art X-ray machine and the wonderful massage the dental chair was giving me was the icing on the whole day. I hate the dentist but Dr. Lane has made my experience have some of the chips fall off my shoulder about dentist visits.

Switched to this office after some research and needing to leave our other office that we did not care for. Was not disappointed! I’ve been around dental offices my entire life as my mother managed a couple and I can confidently say that the Lane Dental team exceeded my expectations and I felt comfortable! They treated me with respect and most importantly, treated my kid like he was one of theirs. Kind and caring staff and a beautiful office! Happy we have found our new dental team!!

My husband and I were both very impressed with our experience with Lane Family Dental.We both agree that this was the best experience we have ever had at any dentist we have gone to. From the receptionist, the hygienist, dentist, and dental assistant were all top notch. They all were very friendly, professional, and made us feel very comfortable. We will definatly be coming back.

I loved how easy it was to become a new patient. The form was online, no glitches, and took me less than 5 minutes. The office was clean and nicely decorated with a lot of great artwork. The dental chair massages. Wow! The staff is friendly, happy, and makes you feel comfortable as soon as you walk in the door. The consultation was honest; all options laid out and their opinion on a best plan forward; which wasn't the most expensive or include any unnecessary work. I appreciate them talking to me like a friend or.a family member needing the best possible treatments at the best possible price. I look forward to more visits. Thanks guys for a great first day.

Great doctor and assistants, with the skill to numb you right the first time! After a bad experience at a previous dentist who couldn’t numb me and drilled anyway, I was nervous. Dr Lane got me numbed completely the first time and I didn’t feel a thing! Also had a great experience with my child’s first dental visit, very friendly and modern. They definitely got our family’s business for life!

I have not been to a Dentist in roughly 20 years and now I have no choice as a result. I called Lane Family Dental first thing on a Monday morning and they asked me if I could be there at Noon which was surprising as I thought being a new patient I would have to wait at least a few days or more. They told me I could fill out all the new patient forms online which was also pretty cool, easy, and time saving for me. My biggest concern was that since I had neglected to go to a dentist in so long that I was going get judged or at least lectured but that was not the case. I was treated with respect and kindness by everyone I dealt with at Lane, they explained everything to me as we went through my appointment and gave me options for both treatment and payment. Now I feel like my teeth might actually have a chance to survive some more years. Lane Family Dental came highly recommended to me and in turn I highly recommend them to you no matter how long you have been putting it off. Thank you to everyone at Lane Family Dental!

This is the second time I’ve gone here and I’m still blown away by the service and attention to detail. Prior to these guys, I used to dread dental visits. At this office, they go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and happy. We just had our first child three weeks ago and I had to bring him with. I hoped that he would sleep through, but of course he woke up as soon as I showed up for the appt. He was hungry, but instead of getting upset with sticking to time schedules, they encouraged me to make sure he ate enough and burped before we started. He was still fussy, so their receptionist (she is amazing) held him while their dental hygienist (she was also awesome) did my x-rays and then we tucked him in the chair with me during the cleaning. Love it! My teeth are super shiny clean and both this mamma and her baby are very satisfied customers. ^_^

I had so much built up anxiety from not going to regular dental check ups like I probably should have but the staff was phenomenal! They all made me feel comfortable, didn't judge me, and had great hospitality. The hygentist was sweet, and gentle. I have not experienced that in a long time. I'm actually excited to go back in a few months for another cleaning. From the time I walked in to the time I left I felt like I chose the right place to go.

I'm pretty self conscious about my teeth, when I went into Lane Family Dental I felt very comfortable, and welcomed as soon as I opened the door. The staff here are amazing! I also enjoy how customer based the office is with refreshments, massage chairs and Netflix. After 10 years of trying to find a good dentist, Dr. Lane is by far the best.

My husband and I recently found Lane Family Dental. We are both so pleased with their professionalism, modern equipment and outstanding care. The people at the front and Dr. Lane's dental assistant are bright, cheeful and professional as well. Living in Talkeetna we are so pleased they have two offices, one being in Willow which is quite convenient. Thank you Lane Family Dental for providing such great care to the Mat-Su Valley.

About a year or so ago I discovered Lane Dental. Due to circumstances in my life I hadn’t been to a dentist in a really long time. They were very caring and kind. Since then I’ve had some teeth removed and am currently having a partial made. They have been patiently working with me and my insurance. Asia has been wonderful to work with for my scheduling and Dr. lane has been so kind and gentle. His assistants have been a real pleasure also. Thank you to the entire staff ?

Fantastic customer service! Everybody there is very friendly and easy to talk to. They explained everything that was going on with my teeth, provided a plan to get them back in good shape, and cleaned em up real nice. It may have been a while since my last trip to a dentist, but I don't remember the visits being so relaxing.
