Meet Our Team

Dr. Troy Aland

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.

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!!
