Caroline Curtis Doctor of Medical Dentistry (DMD)

Dr. Curtis is really enjoying her time back in Eagle River.   It's great fun to be able to visit with our friends on the weekends and see our patient family during the week.

Previously, Dr. Curtis was the Chief Dental Officer (CDO) at the Interior Community Health Center in Fairbanks.   At ICHC she was  highly regarded by her patients, the staff, and the ICHC Board of Directors.  In her time at the community health clinic she added to her (now) 19 years of valuable experience working in the dental community as an office manager, an assistant, and from 2012-2017 as a practicing family dentist and from 2015-2017 as Dental Director.   It might interest some of you to know that for several years (2003-2008) Dr. Curtis worked in the Eagle River Orthodontics offices as an assistant with Dr. Eldon Dekay before pursuing her Doctor of Medical Dentistry (DMD) at the University of Louisville (UofL – Go Cards!) School of Dentistry, graduating in 2012.  She and her family were even patients here at Eagle View!  Dr. Curtis is very happy to be returning to Eagle River where her family has a house, friends and now… a local business.
