Meet Our Doctor
Meet Dr. Kris Gurr
My father was a chaplain in the Air Force so we moved around the world until he retired when I was 12 years old. I was raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and even though I loved it I was excited to get away from the heat and the big city.
I love to travel and do everything outdoors with my family. My wife Brooke and I have two children and love to go hiking, 4-wheeling, fishing and playing with them outdoors in the Hatchers Pass area. My wife Brooke is a hygienist and will be working alongside me in my practice.
We both look forward to practicing dentistry in Wasilla and serve in the community and surrounding area. I have worked in the dental field for many years and have been able to care for and provide exceptional care for my patients.
Brooke and I are committed to providing dental care and personalized communication.
We look forward to meeting you!
Dr. Wes Lauderback
My name is Dr. Wes Lauderback and I would love to take a minute to introduce myself before I meet you in person.
I grew up in Johnson City, Tennessee and attended the University of Tennessee where I met my wife, Angela. Together we moved to Nashville, TN where we had our first two children (Brayden-7 and Avery-5) and I completed dental school.
After Dental school I joined the army and completed a one year residency where I got side by side training from some of the Army’s best dental specialists. Our family was then assigned to JBER, AK where we had our third child (Jackson-2) and I served as the brigade dentist for 4th Brigade/25th Infantry Division for two years, including airborne training and a deployment to Afghanistan. I then served as regular army dentist for two additional years. Although I’m sad my time in the army has come to an end I am excited to start working at Lucille Dental and serving Wasilla’s dental needs.
Over the past 4 years I have fallen in love with Alaska and love to do anything outdoors including hiking, fishing, hunting and camping with my family.
I look forward to practicing dentistry in Wasilla and serve in the community and surrounding area.
I look forward to meeting you!
