Meet Dr.Sorhus

Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS)

Dr. Sorhus has placed a profound emphasis on continuing his education post dental-school and has taken over 700 hours of dental continuing education.  He has found great satisfaction and interest in oral surgery, cosmetics and dental implants.  He has earned several awards from the International Dental Implant Association and has earned their top award, his diplomate status from them in 2016.  He currently enjoys associate teaching about implants and related surgeries.

Dr. Jeremy Sorhus is a native of the Pacific Northwest having spent most of his formative years in Oregon, and although Oregon was always home-base, his fathers’ career took him all over the world, and by the age of 12 was a bona-fide world traveler.  He lived in Yemen for two years and spent considerable time in Europe and the Middle East.  He has also spent several years in Central America – most notably in Nicaragua.  He speaks fluent Spanish and was fluent in Arabic, although according to him, he has lost a great deal of that because there are few people to converse with in the US.

Following high school graduation in Philomath, Oregon, Dr. Sorhus attended Oregon State University and later transferred to Rick’s College to finish up an associate’s degree.  Immediately after there, he transferred to Brigham Young University in Provo, UT and earned a BS in Geography with minors in Chemistry, Biology, and Humanities.

For post-graduate work Dr. Sorhus chose to go to Indiana University School of Dentistry in Indianapolis, IN where he graduated with several honors and awards and graduated with top marks in all his clinical boards.  While in dental school, Dr. Sorhus also won several awards for dental research he did on teeth whitening, including earning the Dentsply Student Clinician of the year honors for the research.

After graduation from dental school, Dr. Sorhus immediately started private practice in Great Falls, MT and enjoyed a thriving practice there, and sold it after being in the Montana area for 7+ years.  He has always maintained a curiosity for Alaska and used this opportunity to relocate up to this great state.  He is a proud father of 6 beautiful children and enjoys spending time with them outdoors in the wilds of Alaska.  He is particularly fond of snow machining, golf, and mountain biking up to a mountain lake to go fly-fishing.

Memberships

Dr. Sorhus is a continuing member of these top professional dentistry associations which focus on advocating for the dental health community and providing new technology to dentists all over the world.

Meet Dr. Simnitt

Doctor of Dental Medicine(DDM)

Dr. Thorn Simnitt completed his Bachelors degree at Brigham Young University, and his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the Medical University of South Carolina. He distinguished himself during his time at dental school as class president and as an executive leader in the University’s chapter of the Academy of General Dentistry.

He spent several years engaged in full time missionary service in Southern Florida and also treated under served populations in the Philippines and South Carolina. He loves expanding his skills and knowledge through continuing education and has received additional training in oral surgery, implant dentistry and orthodontics.

Dr. Simnitt and his wife JoAnna a registered nurse, welcomed their first baby in December of 2017. They both love the great outdoors and have enjoyed immersing themselves in the Alaskan culture of fishing, hiking and discovering all that our amazing state has to offer.
