SCHEDULE APPOINTMENT

MEET DR. KRIS GURR

My name is Kris Gurr, and I would love to take a minute to introduce myself before I meet you in person.

My father was a chaplain in the Air Force, so we moved around the world until he retired when I was 12 years old. I was raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and even though I loved it I was excited to get away from the heat and the big city.

I love to travel and do everything outdoors with my family. My wife Brooke and I have two children and love hiking, 4-wheeling, fishing, and playing with them outdoors in the Hatchers Pass area. My wife, Brooke, is a hygienist and will be working alongside me in my practice.

We both look forward to practicing dentistry in Wasilla and serve in the community and surrounding area. I have worked in the dental field for many years and have been able to care for and provide exceptional care for my patients.

Brooke and I are committed to providing dental care and personalized communication.

We look forward to meeting you!

Meet Dr. Zach Pieper

Hi, my name is Zach Pieper, and I would love to take a minute to tell you a little about myself!

I grew up as the son of a dentist in a small town in Nebraska, so I came to understand the need for a kind, gentle dentist at a young age. I always wanted to follow in my dad’s footsteps and headed right into college where I met my sweetheart, Randi Rae. We were in school together and fell in love. We couldn’t wait to start our family. My wife was originally raised in Alaska and loved to take me up into the wilds of Alaska for all our family vacations. It wasn’t long before I knew we would be living in Alaska!

We love to travel and do everything outdoors. Randi Rae and I have two kiddos and one on the way! We love to go hiking, bike riding, camping, and playing with our kids outdoors.

Serving in the surrounding area of the Mat-Su is a privilege we look forward to. Randi Rae plans to be a stay-at-home mom and enjoys the homeschool culture of Alaska. I enjoy working in the dental field and providing exceptional care for my patients in a variety of dental procedures. I look forward to working with you to meet your specific needs!

Meet Dr. Wayland Hunter

My name is Wayland Hunter and I’m very excited to be a member of the meridian team! I was born and raised in Minnesota and I’m a proud graduate of the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry.

I married my high school sweetheart, Breeta, half way through dental school. Last spring, she was selected into the Family Medical Residency at Providence. We are both very excited to be here! In our free time, we enjoy hiking, running, cooking, and spending time with friends.

I’m looking forward to serving the local community by providing comprehensive quality dental care for my patients.
