Char, RDH, has been serving Eagle River for many years during a career in several offices in our community.  Most notably, many patients appreciated her care in the office of Dr. Corral before his retirement from practice.  We are happy to welcome her to our team since 2016.

Jennifer is Eagle River Smiles’ office manager.  She joined our team in 2015 after moving from Seattle.  She is experienced in most things dental.  In addition to helping patients with paperwork, answering phones and making appointments, she is also trained to work alongside Dr. Enghirst: don’t be surprised if she attends to your every need from the moment you walk in until you say goodbye after making your next appointment.  Jen’s husband is currently stationed at JBER and they are looking forward to enjoying their first Alaskan Summer.

Jayne is our Dental Assistant.  After growing up in Eagle River, she has spent the past several years in the dental field and is excited to work where she calls home.  She has fit in well with the rest of our team and patients, and she looks forward to meeting you at your next appointment.  Even though she may be one of the more recent additions to our team, she certainly is our resident expert on all things Eagle River!
