Dr Libby is dedicated to the pursuit of creating the ideal patient experience in the dental office.

Utilizing cutting edge technology and progressive thinking, he aims to deliver the most functional, esthetic and long lasting dentistry possible for his patients.

Dr Libby has made it possible for his patients under one roof, to have any work done that they need to stay healthy, pain-free, and happy.

Using his talents, personable nature, and passion of spreading goodwill through dentistry is something that has been, and will continue to be a driving focus into the future.
In his spare time, Dr Libby is the captain of a commercial salmon gillnetting boat in Bristol Bay Alaska and spends several weeks every summer harvesting gorgeous salmon from the ocean.
