Better Than Before
The motto of Dr. Beistline and his family has always been “better than before.” This reminds him to strive to have a positive influence on every person and place he encounters. He has brought this motto to Central Valley Dental Care, encouraging the team to strive to leave every person and place better than they found them.
Dr. David Beistline and Family
Dr. David Beistline is a fifth 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 of Science in biology from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2010, before completing his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry at Western University of Health Sciences in 2015. After 10 long years away from 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 is 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 will find him.
