If you’re new to the Alaska Center For Oral and Facial Surgery (AOFS), we are a state-of-the-art, modern accredited surgery and anesthesia facility with board-certified surgeons who provide minimally invasive procedures. When you’re suffering from teeth issues, they can often be painful and cumbersome, and most people want to avoid seeing a specialist at all. The surgeons and staff members at AOFS understand this concern and always maintain a patient-centered practice so you feel at ease when you work with us.
We warmly welcome you to AOFS as we look forward to working with you and creating and crafting a more beautiful and functional smile.
The Surgeons of AOFS
Our clinic is staffed with three premier Alaskan oral and facial surgeons, including:
Dr. Nordstrom – Dr. Nordstrom is one of the two physicians in Alaska who is licensed in both medicine and dentistry with a focus and certification in oral and maxillofacial surgery. His primary focuses are on complex dental implant concerns, oral lesions and tooth extractions, neck and head trauma, corrective jaw surgery, and cleft lip and palate care.
Dr. Dashow – Dr. Dashow is also licensed in both medicine and dentistry, in addition to anesthesia training. He addresses and highlights TMJ treatments, corrective jaw surgery, facial trauma and pathology, and general implant surgery.

About Our Oral and Facial Surgery Clinic
Our clinic is a beautiful and modern clinic with technology and the innovative minds of our surgeons, ready to help address your most complex dental issues. Because of our advanced technology, we are able to address and provide the highest quality treatments and the most-up-to-date care available in dental medicine.
Each of our surgical suites is reproduced to reflect those of a hospital operating room, paying close attention to the infection control protocols. This is an advantage for patients because they experience the high levels of care with the convenience of outpatient surgery, at a fraction of the cost.
All diagnostics are available in our clinic including a CT scanner, which saves you time and the hassle of having to get one somewhere else. We are also able to have scans approved, taken, and assessed within the same visit. For a full clinic tour, click here!
