Dr. Nathan M. Faber purchased Dental Dentures and Implants after having practiced family, cosmetic, root canal, surgical, and implant dentistry in Alaska for 15 years, primarily in remote Kodiak and Dutch Harbor. There are very few specialists in remote Alaska. Dr. Faber was delighted to serve his patients in all phases of dentistry. He went into private practice after graduating from the prestigious Oregon Health Sciences University with his DMD. He completed his Bachelor of Science, Magna Cum Laude, from Oregon State University. A dedicated proponent of life-long learning, Dr. Faber has 15 years of placement and continuing education in dental implants and has studied Cosmetic Dentistry at the prestigious Los Angeles Institute of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Time with family, church and rebuilding custom Carolina Sport Fishers round out his many interests.
