valley dental clinic team


Where patients are treated just like family.

Valley Dental Clinic is your trusted dental home in the Matanuska Valley. We treat our patients like real people, not numbers on a production line. Our caring team will welcome you into our dental family with personalized care to help you and your family enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles. Dr. Rob provides comprehensive dental care, and he is the only Bioclear-certified dentist in Alaska.

Valley Dental Clinic is rich in history. Founded in 1978 by Dr. Robert Robinson Sr., it has been in the Robinson family for more than 40 years. Dr. Rob is proud to be keeping the family business going strong, carrying on the tradition of providing high-quality dentistry to the people of the Mat-Su Valley.


Great Experience!! The entire staff, from check in, to cleaning, exam, and check out were lovely. Dr. Rob is very kind and extremely thorough, as are the assistants. Would recommend this establishment to anyone!!

Meet Dr. Rob

Dr. Rob was born in Oklahoma and raised in Wasilla. His father was the fourth dentist in Wasilla, so Dr. Rob spent a lot of his childhood in the dental clinic. Nearly everyone in the community knew Dr. Robinson (Dr. Rob’s father). Dr. Rob wanted to continue treating families and friends in the Mat-Su community. After graduating from Wasilla High in 1989, Dr. Rob pursued his undergraduate degree and dental school at the University of Louisville. After graduating from dental school in 1999, he took over Valley Dental Clinic from his father. Up until 2017, he focused primarily on general dentistry, but then he discovered Bioclear. He became fascinated by this new, innovative way to fix cosmetic imperfections and restore teeth. Seeing that it is less invasive than traditional methods but yields superior results, he completed intensive training and is now the only Bioclear-certified dentist in the whole state of Alaska.

Outside of his dental practice, Dr. Rob enjoys fishing, snowmachining, moose hunting, and watching football (go Oklahoma Sooners!). He even raced the Iron Dog, the world’s longest, toughest snowmobile race, in 2012. Dr. Rob is married to Gina, and together they have three children. Their two sons are both on active duty in the U.S. Army, and their daughter is a sophomore in college.
