Health Centered Dentistry is excited to welcome Dr. James Stirland, DMD, to our practice
Dr. James Stirland discovered his love for dentistry while attending Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, where he graduated with a BS in Neuroscience. He then received his DMD at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California. After enlisting with the U.S. Army, he completed his residency in General Dentistry at Fort Hood, Texas. He is now excited to call Alaska home!
While on active duty with the U.S. Army, he has developed valuable dental skills including placing dental implants to restore missing teeth, thus aiding function and aesthetics; periodontal surgeries to restore oral health in diseased tissue or as a necessary prep for other procedures; endodontic procedures; extensive surgical cases such as wisdom teeth removal, biopsies, and trauma; orthodontics; pedodontics; and overall comprehensive care of the patient. He also has a great passion for CEREC technology (same-day crowns).
Dr. Stirland loves being able to help people reach their fullest potential in oral health through teaching. His favorite part of dentistry is the role he plays in helping boost his patient’s confidence by helping them turn their lives from painful insecurity to a healthy, confident smile. His patients recognize his calm and kind nature, and feel comfortable and at ease in his care.
When not in the dental office, you can find Dr. Stirland with his beautiful wife, Rachel, and their three wonderful children hitting the rivers to fish for salmon, playing soccer in the backyard, or exploring a new trail!
