About Our Practice

Dr. Gerik assumed the long standing dental practice of Dr. Jon Tanner in May of 2014. Our staff strives to provide modern, high quality dentistry to Alaskans of all ages. Dr. Gerik attends several continuing education courses annually to remain up to date of current developments in dentistry. Our office utilizes state of the art electronic records and digital x-rays, which provide clear information and significantly reduced x-ray exposure to our patients. Many of our patients comment on the larger x-ray images visible on our monitors which can be easier for them to understand. Our office focuses on all aspects of general family dentistry, including fillings, crowns, root canals, extractions, wisdom teeth, implants, and pediatric dentistry. We also provide dentistry under general anesthesia sedation Fairbanks Memorial Hospital for special needs patients. By providing a wide variety of quality services, we can typically save our patients time, money, and trips to multiple offices. Our staff is knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly, kind. We look forward to helping you and your family obtain and maintain the smile you desire.
