Get to Know

Dr. Kris Alpers

Dr. Kristopher Alpers follows an approach to dentistry that allows patients to be well informed and have an active role in their treatment plan. After seeing how cumbersome the patient experience can be — going from general dentist to various specialists and countless appointments — Dr. Alpers knew he wanted to bring all of the latest cosmetic techniques under one roof. With a focus on ongoing Continued Education and training, he's doing just that: going beyond general dentistry to give patients an unparalleled (and convenient!) start-to-finish experience, with high-quality, advanced cosmetic treatments. He is particularly passionate about dental implants and enjoys serving as a mentor in the Implant Pathway program.

Originally from Minnesota, Dr. Alpers received his B.S. in Exercise Science from Michigan Technological University, where he also played college basketball. He attended Marquette University School of Dentistry and was awarded his D.D.S. in 2014. In addition to being elected and serving as class president, he was also presented with the National Leadership Award, which is given to the senior student who exhibited outstanding leadership, academic, and professional improvement and demonstrates great potential. More recently, in 2018, Dr. Alpers was honored as a “Healthcare Heroes” finalist by the Phoenix Business Journal. He is a participating member of the American Dental Association, the Arizona Dental Association, and the Central Arizona Dental Society.

Dr. Alpers and his wife, Kelly, have two sons: Myles and Luka. They enjoy spending time as a family, trying new restaurants in the Valley, and cheering on the Green Bay Packers.

Advanced Tech,
Exceptional Results

Intraoral Cameras

Intraoral cameras allow you to see exactly what we see, giving you a firsthand look at your oral health. This interactive experience helps us educate and involve our patients in their treatment plans, fostering a strong patient-dentist relationship.

Digital X-Rays

We've revolutionized the way we take X-rays with our digital technology. Not only do digital X-rays reduce radiation exposure, but they also provide instant results, allowing us to diagnose and develop treatment plans more efficiently.

Infection Control & Sterilization

Your safety is our top priority. We adhere to the highest standards of infection control and sterilization to ensure a clean and hygienic environment. Our advanced techniques and protocols give you peace of mind, knowing that your health is in good hands.

iTero Scanner

Say goodbye to messy and uncomfortable traditional impressions! Our iTero scanner uses cutting-edge technology to create precise 3D images of your teeth, allowing us to create custom treatments with ease.

VELscope for Oral Cancer Screening

Early detection is key when it comes to oral cancer. Our VELscope technology helps us identify abnormalities and potential cancerous lesions in their early stages, increasing the chances of successful treatment.

Digital Treatment Planning

Our digital treatment planning allows us to create personalized treatment plans tailored to your unique needs. By using advanced software, we can visualize the end result and discuss the treatment process with you, ensuring you are fully informed and confident in your dental journey.


Experience dentistry in a whole new dimension with our 3D-CBCT technology. This advanced imaging system provides detailed 3D images of your teeth, jaw, and facial structure, allowing us to accurately diagnose and plan complex dental procedures.


We're embracing the future of dentistry with our cutting-edge 3D-printing technology. From creating custom dental appliances to crafting intricate dental restorations, our 3D printer allows us to provide precise and efficient solutions for our patients.

Smile Simulations

Curious about how your smile could look after treatment? Our smile simulations use digital imaging to show you a preview of your transformed smile. This allows you to explore different treatment options and visualize the possibilities before making any decisions.


We believe in capturing the beauty of your smile. That's why we document your dental journey every step of the way, from before and after photos to detailed images for treatment planning.

Saliva Testing

A simple, non-invasive saliva test allows us to identify and measure bacteria in your mouth. Through this test, harmful bacteria — that could otherwise lead to systemic inflammation, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s and more — are flagged and treated to help maintain your overall health and wellness.

How We Give Back

Giving back to the community is at the heart of what we do. Dr. Alpers has a remarkable background, having served as the dental director for The Neighborhood Christian Clinic, where he provided essential dental services to those who couldn't afford care. His dedication to helping the less fortunate was recognized when he became a finalist for the prestigious Health Care Heroes award. We are proud to have such a compassionate and caring dentist leading our team!
