About Us

Better Than Before

As long as he can remember, Dr. Beistline’s family motto has been “better than before,” a reminder to have a positive influence on every person and to leave every place or situation in better condition than when he arrived. Dr. Beistline has brought this philosophy to Central Valley Dental Care, striving to have a positive influence on the community and leave every patient feeling better off than when they arrived.

Meet Dr. David Beistline

Dr. Beistline is a 5th generation Alaskan, born and raised in Fairbanks. He headed down to the lower 48 to pursue his education and acquire a dental degree. He received his Bachelor’s of Science in Biology from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2010, before completing his Doctorate of Medicine in Dentistry at Western University of Health Sciences in 2015. After 10 long years away for the state he loves, he was finally able to return with his wife Jolene and three little ones.

Upon returning to Alaska, he had his eyes set on the beautiful Mat-Su Valley as the place to settle down and raise his growing family. Dr. Beistline’s vision of building his own premier dental practice came to fruition with the opening of Central Valley Dental Care in Wasilla in 2021.

When he’s not in the office, Dr. Beistline enjoys experiencing all of the wonderful activities that Alaska has to offer. Whether it’s fishing, hiking, four-wheeling, camping with his kids or attending their sporting events, spending time with his family outdoors is where you’ll find him.
