Always friendly. They take the fear out of going to the dentist. They explain everything they are going to do. I had a teeth cleaning was pain free. They did a great job. If your looking for a dentist, look no more..

Tabb Thoms

I opened the acs phone book looking for a dentist for my mom. I called Family First since they said they cater to wimpy people. Mom got an appt. right away. When we walked in the atmosphere was so pleasant we knew we were in the right place. My mom was given all the options for her situation. I will recommend them highly in the future. I will even start going to this dentist. Thank you for making this a good experience for my mom.

I have been going to Family First Dentistry for 20 years. I began with Joe Harmon who retired, and am currently seeing Dr. Gregg Harr. Through all the years, their customer service has been superlative. Everyone in that office is cordial and sincerely cares about their patients.. They are truly concerned that you receive appropriate treatment and that they do it in a pain-free manner. They follow up with calls to be sure you are doing well and will accommodate any emergency you have. In short, they are the greatest! You will not find a more caring and competent dental staff. They will bill your insurance for you and have a discount for seniors. If you are looking for a dentist you can stay with for years, these are the folks I recommend.

Merlaine K.

I am new to Anchorage, and was recommended by a co-worker to come to Family First. I walked in to a calm, soothing waiting area with a water fountain. The staff were all incredibly kind. I went in to get two cavities filled. I know that getting numbed is always scary for me, but they made it so easy and painless. I didn’t feel the work they did at all! And since I had been recommended to come there by someone, I got a nice discount! They did an excellent job.

Macy M.

I have been coming here for the past 12 years and I would never go anywhere else. The staff are so friendly and have a genuine care for their patients! They make you feel like family from the second you walk in the door. The atmosphere is calm, clean and beautiful, which is such an added bonus. I would recommend anyone and everyone to Family First Dentistry!! ?

Molly G.

I have been apart of FFD for almost 7 years now & trust these folks with not only my teeth but my family & friends’ teeth too. You will not find another office that cares more than the kind people at Family First.

Jackie D.

My family's experience has been amazing, from start to finish. Family First Dentistry is the best dental office I've ever visited by far, in my 33-years in Anchorage. The friendly office staff, and the gentle, yet thorough hygienist make it all worthwhile... And Jason, the Scheduler, was so helpful on the phone and in-person, getting my girls and I all scheduled on the same day. I call that, "excellent customer service"! I will definitely recommend "Family First Dentistry" to everyone I know... Thank you!

What Makes Us Different?

At our practice, we strive to give our patients a dental experience that goes above and beyond their expectations. We offer walk-in appointment flexibility, as well as walk-in emergency dental care. After your hygiene appointment, we’ll pre-schedule your next one right there in our office, so that you don’t have to worry about making a separate call in six months.

We offer a prioritized treatment plan that allows you to decide which treatments you want to be done first and when. To provide more comfort for our patients, we maintain a relaxing office setting and give patients who might experience anxiety and stress over dental visits IV and oral sedation options. Our digital x-rays allow instant access to your x-ray results, and our same-day crowns can save you time and money.

At our office, we offer services that aren’t always available at one location, including wisdom teeth extractions, traditional braces, and Invisalign. Our convenient midtown Anchorage location is handicap accessible and the parking is always free. We offer flexible financial options and will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan.


A dental emergency can happen when you least expect it, but with Family First Dentistry, we have a dental professional who has you covered. If you or a loved one experiences an emergency, our team will get you an appointment as soon as we can to provide you with the treatment you need.


At our practice, we invest in the latest technology to provide greater comfort and convenience for our patients during their appointments. Using the CAD/CAM restoration system, we can create a beautiful, perfectly fitted porcelain crown in less than a day. Our patients don’t have to wait for their permanent crown to be crafted in a dental lab. Instead, they can get their tooth prepped and their crown placed in one easy appointment.


We want each patient’s experience with us to be as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Sedation dentistry services are available before any treatment and can help you feel relaxed and at ease throughout your entire procedure. We offer multiple sedation dentistry treatment options including IV sedation, oral conscious sedation, and general anesthesia.
