Troy Aland, DDS
I love being able to help our patients overcome fears, conquer pain, and discover that going to the dentist can be a fantastic, painless experience.
Each day brings a schedule full of patients and possibilities, whether we are seeing old friends or getting to know great new individuals visiting for the first time. I enjoy hearing patients share their stories as we work together. I learn a lot from my patients and genuine, lasting relationships form.
Dentistry is more than a profession, it’s a passion for me. I enjoy seeing the confidence patients gain by having a beautiful, bright smile. Having successful treatment is rewarding to both the patient and me because we feel proud of what we’ve accomplished together. Whether following simple or very complex procedures, it is meaningful for me to see our patients’ futures brighten by improving their health.
What is better than having fun at work? This team gets along well and laughs a lot. We are like a close family. I respect and admire their dedication, attention to detail, and caring nature. They give me confidence that each visitor to our practice will receive the best care imaginable. We work together to ensure that you feel comfortable and at ease during your appointment. Our goal is to treat you like family.
All of us look forward to helping you achieve great oral health and a smile you’ll love to share with the world!
I received my dental education at the Creighton University School of Dentistry. But a professional’s education does not just end when a degree is awarded. Staying sharp, up-to-date, and in touch with the ever changing and rapidly advancing technological improvements is imperative. I owe each of my patients the highest level of comfort and care possible and pursuing continuing education makes it possible for me to ensure that.
Whether in clinical settings, seminars, or at meetings, interaction with other professionals is invaluable to expanding any professional’s knowledge and skills base. My membership in professional organizations also provides me with endless opportunities for access to the latest research and advancements within my field.
Consequently, I am a current and active participant in the following professional organizations:
- American Dental Association
- Nevada Dental Association
- Northern Nevada Dental Society
Though I was born in Murray, UT, Reno is where I have spent most of my life. It is where I feel at home, and where my wife, Lisa, and I first met during our college years. Our lives here have been further enriched greatly by our children, three girls and one boy.
Away from work, I most appreciate the time I share with my family or at church. I also enjoy hunting, skiing, and golfing, and am a big fan of the Chicago Cubs and BYU Cougars.
Community is an extension of family and home. Contributing my efforts in ways that benefit its members is important for me.
One of the ways in which I am able to offer my talents is by performing dental health presentations in our Washoe County elementary schools. It is so enjoyable to travel throughout the area visiting classrooms, educating our youth on the importance of good oral health. Anyone is free to contact our office to schedule a future presentation.
Teaching students in a clinical setting is another way in which I am able to give back. I feel so fortunate to have worked with students in the dental assisting program at the Milan Institute from 2012-2014.
I am also a participating provider in the Northern Nevada Dental Health Program. NNDHP is a non-profit program which provides quality low-cost oral health care for economically disadvantaged children who reside in Northern Nevada.
Mathew Stewart, DMD
“When I grow up, I want to be a professional hockey player and then a dentist to fix all of my friend’s teeth.” My mother told me that I said this when I was in grade school.
I have been around the dental world for as long as I can remember. I am a born and raised Reno native. My father was a dentist in this town for 32 years, and my mother trained assistants while working in several dental offices over the years. I always knew that I wanted to be a dentist, but I never knew how much I would grow to love the profession.
I graduated from dental school in 2015 and have since been in practice striving to further my education, capabilities, and ability to provide our patients with the best possible care in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.
The dental environment can be scary, and I aim to make the experience enjoyable. My goal is to have you understand not only what I am doing but why I am doing it and to have you engaged in your treatment plan. Whether it’s cosmetic work, surgical work, whitening, pain relief, or achieving oral health and preventing future treatment, I do my best to provide you with a one-stop shop for a beautiful and healthy smile.
I desire to treat patients as I would like to be treated myself, and you will be treated as if you were family when you come and see us. I have been blessed to become friends with many of my patients and staff over the years, and I look forward to working with you and getting to know you.
I am very excited to be able to join the amazing team at Aland Family Dentistry, and I look forward to what is to come!

At work, I strive to stay as active as possible. I grew up playing roller and ice hockey and continue to do so. My favorite sports team is the San Jose Sharks. I love to run. 10 miles is a great distance, but I love pushing myself further. 50k ultra is next on my bucket list. When not running or playing hockey, I enjoy lake days.
Wakeboarding, fishing, or anything under the sun. I spent my breaks in my college years up in Canada and Alberta, so on the weekends in winter months, you can find me in the backcountry on my split board or a snowmobile chasing the steep and untouched powder runs.
As a healthcare professional in the community, I find it enjoyable to give back. I have done this in many ways. In school, I worked in many clinics, providing free dental work to children, veterans, and homeless people in need. Since graduation, I have given back by volunteering for Give Kids a Smile, which provides free dental treatment to children in need. I have also been a continuing provider for a program called Adopt-A-Vet, which provides free dental work for veterans in need.
Jen | Registered Dental Hygienist
I am a proud Reno native and love seeing all the growth in Reno!! I have been in the dental field for 18 years and have been a hygienist going on 12 years! I graduated at the top of my class from the College of Southern Nevada in 2010 and I have been working with Dr. Aland ever since. I plan on staying with him ‘til he kicks me out. I love all things dental and absolutely love all my patients!!
I have 3 sassy girls who are full of energy, a puppy, and 3 rabbits that keep me on my toes.
When I’m not working as a dental hygienist I am party planning with my Reno Tiny Tent company setting up custom slumber parties and backyard parties.
I love spending time with my family, hiking, swimming, skiing, traveling, and eating tacos and chocolate!!
