Dr. Keller and Dr. Ryan share a passion for serving the children of Anchorage, Eagle River, Wasilla, and Girdwood, Alaska. Both are highly experienced in treating infants, children, and teenagers as well as those with special needs, and continuing education is a priority to ensure we are providing the highest-quality care for our community.
Dr. Paige Ryan is passionate about helping the children of Alaska achieve happy, healthy smiles for life. After growing up on the beautiful Oregon coast, graduating magna cum laude from Pacific Lutheran University, and earning her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, she relocated to Alaska.
Dr. Ryan practiced as a general dentist for four years in Kotzebue, where she fell in love with the children of Alaska. It was also during this time practicing in Kotzebue that she first met Dr. Keller. Seeking to provide the best care possible, Dr. Ryan completed pediatric dental training at the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage through the NYU-Langone Health Pediatric Dental Training Program.
It brings Dr. Ryan incredible joy to get to know her patients and their families on a personal level, connecting with children to teach preventive practices from an early age and help them to develop positive attitudes about dental care.
Dr. Ryan is board certified through the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, and Alaska Dental Society, and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Outside of dentistry, her free time is always spent with her little boy, husband, and Lab puppy, and she is an avid reader.
From a young age, Dr. Mark E. Keller always knew he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a dentist. He graduated from the University of Minnesota, where he was a kicker for the Golden Gophers, and went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Nebraska Medical Center School of Dentistry in Lincoln, Nebraska.
After Dr. Keller returned to his hometown of Rochester, Minnesota, to practice as a general dentist, he realized his true passion and desire to become a pediatric dentist. He applied to the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry for a position in their Pediatric Dental Residency Program and was thrilled to be accepted right away.
After graduating from his pediatric residency, Dr. Keller was ready to grow some roots, and he knew Alaska was where he belonged. He moved here in 2008 to start a practice and is now an active member of the community, far exceeding continuing education requirements and participating in local conferences and events. He is an active member of the Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, and Alaska Dental Society, as well as a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
When he’s not providing care at the office, Dr. Keller can be found hunting and fishing in the beautiful Alaskan wilderness.
Dr. Paige Ryan is incredible! I have never felt so comfortable with putting my kids in someone’s hands before. She is confident, smiley, and so sweet. I can tell she knows what she’s doing and their entire staff is friendly and professional. Very clean office. Organized. Fun environment. Highly recommend.
This clinic was amazing today for my two kids' appointments. I was very nervous but the hygienist and Dr. Keller were so kind and caring and super well set up to take care of their patients. My kids were totally comfortable and made it through their appointments! Thank you so much and we will definitely be recommending this clinic to our friends.
My daughter loves Dr. Keller! The 1st day of 1st grade and she was bragging to her friends that she was going to the dentist later to get her tooth pulled! Sure enough... those roots were so long that the tooth would not have come out on its own! Thanks, Kids Dental Tree, for making her day!
This place is incredible! My 2 year old had some issues that had to be dealt with. Dr. Ryan was amazing, and so patient given that my 2 year old hates going to any kind of Dr. office, she flips out. My daughter had to be put out to do what needed to be done. I was a nervous wreck but the entire staff was so helpful and calming. The procedure went off with no issues and no trauma to my little one. I am a very relieved and happy mommy, and am SO happy I chose to take her there! Thank you to everyone at Kid's Dental Tree!
My son and daughter have been with Mark since their first cleanings, the staff is great they send out reminder texts so you don't forget to get your kids in every 6 months for cleanings. The staff is so great with kids...Awesome job to the staff definitely five stars all around!!!!
