Aja was born and raised in California. Her degree in behavioral science gives her an appreciation for everyone she meets. Patient care starts at the front desk and is something Aja takes a lot of pride in. She understands the anxieties that come with visiting the dentist and strives to make our patients feel at ease. Aja began working in the dental community four years ago and fell in love with the field. She thoroughly enjoys the patient interaction and seeing patients leave happy and confident.

Aja has resided in California, Missouri, Wyoming and Manitoba, Canada. However, Alaska captured her heart and has become a permanent home to her and her family.

When not in the office Aja enjoys hiking, long distance running, skiing, camping, fishing and gardening. Aja has a great love for the outdoors and enjoys taking in everything Alaska has to offer. She is very appreciative of the amazing community we live in and its beautiful surroundings that allow her to do what she loves with her husband and three daughters.


Everyone needs to be passionate about what they do. Everyone wants to have a positive impact in peoples’ lives. This is true of my role in dentistry. With 25 years of experience as a dental hygienist, I feel it is very important to build relationships with people and try to connect to put them at ease. Over the years I feel privileged to have been able to serve in the bush community of Naknek, the North Slope community of Barrow, and the town of Sitka on Baranof Island in beautiful Southeast Alaska. Being able to participate in the local community service opportunity of Alaska Mission of Mercy is another highlight of my career.

Here at Lane Family Dental, everything is very much a team effort and we all strive to make it a family-oriented atmosphere.

When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband and 4 dogs. I also love swimming, travel, gardening, reading and most recently have taken up knitting.


Marina’s burning passion in helping others encouraged her to start her journey in the medical field as a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant). Seeing the dental needs as a CNA inspired her to embark on a new
career. Marina has graduated from Dental Assisting school in 2016. Being an adventurous person, Marina always seeks opportunities to travel and serve people through humanitarian and church mission trips. As a typical Alaskan girl, fishing and camping are high on her list as well as spending quality time with family, friends, and music. It is very gratifying and rewarding for Marina to be able to touch a patient’s life by giving back their smile and enhancing their life quality. As a personal goal, Marina strives to make people feel welcome, with her smile and enthusiasm Marina brings comfort and care to all patients. The positive atmosphere and the integrity of this office is very appreciated.


Rachael was born and raised in Alaska, doing all “Alaskan” things growing up. After high school she went on to have a successful wrestling career at Lindenwood University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education and Pre-Nursing. After graduating college she became a graduate-assistant, coaching women’s wrestling and working on her Master of Business Administration at Missouri Baptist University. She was eventually offered a full-time Assistant position at Wayland Baptist University in Texas and accepted that. After realizing that Texas was not her cup of tea she moved back HOME and landed herself a dental assistant position at Lane Family Dental.

You will not find her at home, unless…well no, you will not find her at home. She spends her time around the things she loves, and is always trying new things. You may find her spending time with her other half, their dogs, friends and family, playing softball, shooting darts, trying to hit a puck with a stick while on two blades, trekking to find some new scenery, or somewhere she can put a line in the water.

I had an issue come up after hours and I sent them a message via Messenger and they immediately responded and were able to fit me in today!!! I’m so thankful for their help, but most of all for their amazing customer service and care for patients. I would absolutely recommend them for all of your dental needs.

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.

Great atmosphere, staff, and dentist. I had a bad experience the last time I went to the dentist so I was petrified to go in but this place was totally relieving. Me and my family will always be coming here with our dental needs.

The best dentist I’ve had in my 60 years. Absolutely impeccably clean facilities. New facilities. The latest techniques and strategies to provide excellent dental care. And most of all the least amount of pain I’ve ever felt at the dentist.

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 ?

Finally, a dentist I look forward to coming to. Great staff, lovely warm waiting area. Dr.Lane is gentle, kind and professional. He explains each process so you know what he is doing. My teeth look great after he fixed some chips in my front teeth.I highly recommend Lane Family Dentistry.

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.
