  • Debbie Gerleve
    Office Manager

    I have taken on the role as office manager here at Chang Family Dental.  I have been with the company over 10 years now.  My husband and I moved to Alaska from New Mexico/Arizona area and continue to love the adventure here.  I have 3 children and 7 grandchildren.  In my spear time I love spending time with my children and grandchildren and new adventures that comes my way.

    Wendy Somers, Dental Hygienist. 

     I am a Hygienist here at Chang Family Dental and have been practicing hygiene for decades. I love to read and travel in my spare time. Family is very important to me and I love spending as much time with them as possible. 

  • Miaya Tompkins
    Lead Dental Assistant

    I am born and raised in the golden heart city of Fairbanks. If you can't find me at the office, you will find me out adventuring our amazing state! I am constantly on the move, whether it is camping, hiking, fishing, or doing photography! I have a passion for photography and pursue it as a side business. I also spend most of my time with my four legged best friend, Cami. She is the ultimate adventure pup and has travelled more than most people do in their lifetime! Aside from my hobbies and interests, I am currently enrolled at UAF completing an Associates of Arts degree, and then will continue my education at UAA next spring once I am enrolled in the Dental Hygiene program. I look forward to continuing my education in the dental field and look forward to being able to provide for my community! 

  • Erica Burch
    Front Desk

    I have lived in the Fairbanks area with my family since 2013. I began my dental adventure in 2017 and have loved my job ever since. I started out as an assistant, but I now work with patients from the front desk. When I’m not at the office helping our fantastic patients, you can find me spending time with my husband and two sons. Whether it’s four-wheeling, snow machine riding, or camping, we love spending time outdoors enjoying all of the beauty that Alaska has to offer. I look forward to many more years of serving the Fairbanks community with Chang Family Dental.
