Adam Jensen DDS, Owner Chugach Dental
Since moving to Alaska in 2013, Dr. Adam Jensen has been providing general dentistry to Alaskans from across the state. He graduated from the University of Washington School of Dentistry in 2010 and began his career in public health. Over the last five years, he has honed his skills in IV sedation, dental implants and orthodontics through extensive continuing education. Recently, he realized his dream to provide comprehensive and patient-centered care by opening his own practice, Chugach Dental.
Originally from Montana, Dr. Jensen has cultivated an appreciation for the wilderness and the great outdoors, and you will find breathtaking photography from his adventures throughout the clinic. Outside of dentistry, Adam raced professionally as an Ironman triathlete for 6 years, and is an avid mountain runner and backcountry skier. He enjoys backpacking, flying and spending time outside with his friends and loyal companion, Major the Mountain Dog. Additionally, he likes to support the local running community through volunteering and participation in local races including Mount Marathon.
