Alan Crist, DDS

Dr. Crist is a Montana native and is thrilled to be practicing dentistry in his home state. Alan grew up in the small town of Florence, Montana, and enjoyed sports and art.  

In college, Alan declared himself an art major, but he quickly switched his sights to dentistry, where he felt he could use his artistic talents while helping people. Alan graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in human biology, then went to dental school with the University of Maryland. In dental school, Alan focused on general dentistry as he felt it would allow him to have long-term relationships with his patients and their families.  After completing dental school and a hospital-based residency, Alan and Laura looked for opportunities to return to Montana.

Alan practices dentistry in a warm and welcoming office where he focuses on overall oral health, patient comfort, and treating each patient as a family member.


Alan’s hobbies of late include family adventure time, woodworking, welding, gardening, remodeling a house and an endless list of to-dos. He absolutely loves the springtime and doesn’t want to be anywhere other than Montana.
