I started off in Oregon – although my grandma & most of my aunts & uncles lived in Seward. My family used to go to Seward during the summers & visit. My parents were loggers & owned their own logging business, however, they called it quits and moved up to Alaska when I was in middle school.

“Growing up I remember the dentist traveling to our town once or twice a year. It would be announced on the VHF and their schedule would be booked immediately. Those who were unable to schedule were forced to wait until the next trip the dentist made into town. I do not remember a face or a name of any dentists that I saw as a child. To me, a dentist was a man with a mask and no name. I would like to be part of a revolution that creates access to good dental care at home; a revolution that gives a face and a name to the person providing dental care.”
