Dr. Todd Christensen and the Entire Team Look Forward to Meeting You

Our goal is for each of our patients to have a "WOW" experience in our office.

This happens as we focus on others and their needs and take the time to listen to their concerns. We are all very experienced at what we do and have over a hundred years of combined experience in helping our patients.

We understand that each of us places a great deal of trust in our health care providers and we take that trust very seriously.   

Sun Mountain Dental Care is built upon a couple of old-fashioned principles. We believe that there are no shortcuts when it comes to success. Success comes as we dedicate ourselves to taking care of people. We have worked together as a team for almost 20 years with the exception of two new people to our office and they are absolutely amazing as well. We know that success is doing a thousand little things right. This takes committed people who love what they do and that love helping others.   

Come see us at Sun Mountain Dental Care and let us help you and your family with your dental needs. You will be glad you did.

Our Services


Routine Exams


Routine dental checkups are essential for maintaining a healthy smile. Not only are they important for maintaining oral hygiene, they also contribute to a healthier life overall, even helping to prevent diseases and illnesses throughout the body. All in all, regularly visiting your dentist is the best way to ensure optimal oral health for people of all ages. Dental checkups offer a range of health benefits that can keep you healthy and reward you with a smile that you can be satisfied with. 

Emergency Dentistry


As stated by the ADA, dental emergencies "are potentially life-threatening and require immediate treatment to stop ongoing tissue bleeding [or to] alleviate severe pain or infection." And while no one expects to have a dental emergency, it can happen to anyone, at any time, often occurring without any warning. In an emergency, a quick visit to the dentist's office is vital to reducing the chances of further damage, infection, or even complete loss of the tooth.

Cosmetic Dentistry


Everyone wants to have a smile they can wear proudly and show off. A smile, as many say, is the most beautiful curve in our body. Many people experiencing issues with their teeth or gums often result in cosmetic treatments to perfect their smiles. Cosmetic treatment is a dental treatment aimed at improving the color, shape, position, size, and alignment of teeth to improve dental aesthetics. 

Most people tend to have improved self-confidence, happier moods, healthier teeth and gums, and brighter smiles after a cosmetic dentistry procedure. Are you looking into having a cosmetic dentistry procedure? Sun Mountain Dental Care in Wasilla, Alaska, is your go-to solution for all your dentistry needs. Dr. Todd Christensen is an expert who selflessly tends to his patients with the motto " it's all about you", because his patients always come first.

Please call our office anytime, to verify your insurance coverage and copays before your visit.

Most insurance is accepted and we are adding new carriers every day.


Our Dentists

Meet the Sun Mountain Dental Family


Dr. Todd Christensen, DDS

I moved to Alaska nearly 20 years ago.  When I was a young boy my dad brought me to Alaska on a fishing trip and I knew then this was the place for me. I have been married to my sweetheart Carleen for 30 years and we have lived the most amazing life together. We have 6 kids and 7 grandchildren whom we love dearly and enjoy spending time with. I have been a pilot since I was a kid and absolutely love the time I get to spend exploring this beautiful state chasing big fish or big moose or just looking for a cool place to land an airplane. Two of my sons and one of my daughters are pilots and we love the time we share together doing the things we love in our airplanes. I have been a dentist for over 25 years and truly enjoy what I do as a dentist. It's incredibly rewarding to restore broken, damaged, or decayed teeth and help people enjoy a beautiful smile. Perhaps the coolest thing about my work is getting to know so many really amazing people with stories of their own. On a daily basis I get to hear so many amazing stories of people's lives and learn what makes them tick and I am truly fortunate to have that opportunity every day!


Kathy Smolnik

Kathy was born and raised in Minnesota. In 2000, she moved to Alaska with her three children. She has been in the dental field for over 30 years. Kathy enjoys working with great patients that come to our office and loves being part of a great group of people. She takes pride in how our practice cares for our patients. Kathy loves spending time with her family and dogs. She has three wonderful grandchildren which bring much joy to her life! She enjoys fishing, hunting, gardening and all the amazing things Alaska has to offer.

Stephanie has lived in the Mat-Su Valley since 1989. She attended UAA in the dental hygiene program and graduated in 1996. She and her husband Randy raised two sons, Shane and Rowdy in Wasilla. Stephanie and Randy enjoy caring for their small ranch with horses, dogs, and chickens and as a family, they enjoy hunting, fishing, and other Alaskan adventures. Stephanie has 26 years of experience as a dental hygienist and loves taking care of her patients at Sun Mountain Dental Care.


Kim Campbell

Kim has been a dental assistant for 28 years and loves helping others and taking care of people. She wants them our patients to feel like a part of our family. She is currently a board certified dental assistant and holds a license from UAA's restorative placement program. Kim has been married for 25 years to her best friend and they have two grown boys and two grand children. She loves spending as much time as she can with them when not working at the office. Kim loves taking nice long walks, watching movies and just spending time with her family.


Kristen Christensen

Dental Assistant

Kristen grew up in Washington state and moved to Alaska in 2019. Since moving here she has had the opportunity to try so many things she never dreamed possible. Her family in Washington is in shock that she ended up in Alaska but she wouldn't trade it for anything. Her absolute favorite thing to do is explore Alaska from the patchy old super cub her husband Ty and her own. Their adventures are usually made up of fishing, hunting, camping, or skiing but just about anything outside works for her. Aside from her life outside of work, her goal has always been to find a career that would allow her to help others. Dental assisting has been a wonderful path for her and she feels very grateful to be in a position that focuses on serving people in her community.


Chris Loveless

Administrative/Dental Assistant

Chris was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. She moved to Wasilla in 1995 with her husband Rick and their young family. Her children are grown now and she’s a grandma. Chris enjoys working in her gardens, spending time at her cabin, dot painting, and collecting rocks. She loves getting to know the patients at SunMountain Dental Care and helping them feel at ease during their visits.
