Delena

Dental Hygienist

I have worked in the Dental field for the last 24 years, 14 of these years I have been part of Dr. Bergdahl’s team.  The staff here is like my family and I enjoy working with them all. We all get along great!  Most of Dr. Bergdahls staff has been with her for 14 plus years.  Educating my patients and bringing them back to excellent oral health is one of my primary goals.  This is what I love best about being a dental hygienist.  I enjoy working with Dr. Bergdahl because she is a great dentist who truly listens to the patients and give great injections.  She is honest and very compassionate to all.

I have lived in Fairbanks for the last 44 years.  I enjoy all the opportunities the great outdoors provide.  I love snowmobiling, skiing, fishing, tubing, camping, gardening, etc.  I have been married for 27 years and have two grown children.  Family means a lot to me and I spend a lot of time having fun with them.  Can’t wait for grandbabies!

Elaine

Dental Assistant

I have been in the dental field for 20 years and part of the Dr. Patricia Bergdahl team for 14 years.  The best part of my job is seeing our patients leave with a smile on their face after their visit with us.  I never get bored with my job!  The professional atmosphere at Dr. Bergdahl’s fits right in with the mutual respect we all have for one another.  We do have a good time with our patients and staff. 

My husband of 36 years is retired Air Force – The Air Force brought our family back to Alaska in 1997.  My four children have grown up here.  We felt at home in Fairbanks and decided to stay.  I still feel a part of our military community as well as Fairbanks.  I am very family orientated; enjoying the time I spend with all of them, especially my grandchildren!  We also have two ‘Aussies’ which we so enjoy!


 

 

Michelle

Dental Assistant

I have been working as a dental assistant for 8 years and was born and raised in Alaska.  I graduated from UAF Community and Technical College with an AAS in dental assisting. Part of my experience includes having traveled to remote interior Alaskan villages providing dental services for outlying areas.  I have been working with Dr. Bergdahl and her team for a little over two years and feel I have truly found my dental home.  I specifically like working with this fun group of people, the cohesive group that makes up this staff.  I appreciate Dr. Bergdahl’s gentle touch and caring attitude with her patients.  Meeting the unique needs of each patient I work with is what I like the most about being a dental assistant. 

In my time away from the office I enjoy many outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, and off-roading with my boyfriend and our two dogs.   My other hobbies include gardening, bike riding, and ski-joring. I look forward to providing all current and future patients with exceptional gentle dental care.


 

Laura

Treatment/Financial/Insurance Coordinator

I have lived in Alaska for 37 years and have enjoyed being in the dental field for 35 years.  I enjoy my husband flying our family and our dogs to remote areas of Alaska to backpack, camp, or just hang out for the day.  When I grow up I’d like to make a trip to Africa and also take a bicycle trip throughout the Lower 48 states.

At our office I have worked both as an assistant chairside with Dr. Bergdahl and in the business aspect of the practice.  Currently I work as the Treatment/Financial/Insurance Coordinator.  If you have questions about your treatment, Insurance payments, or would like to set up payment arrangements please give me a call.  I will make it happen.  I would be pleased to assist you in your quest for superior dental care!


 

Nancy

Front Desk Reception

I have been in the Dental Field and on Dr. Bergdahl’s Team for 18 years.  I like meeting people and hearing their experiences.  We work hard here to give our patients a positive Dental Experience.  I know that I am part of a group that genuinely cares about giving quality care and Dental treatment.

I have lived in Alaska all of my life and have lots of family and friends here.  We like to spend time having food, festivities and fun.  We also like to spend time on the rivers and lakes and in the woods!
