He spent a summer externship in Bethel, Alaska in 1998, and found the culture, the professional challenge, and the outdoorsmanship of the people of the YK Delta inspiring. So, after graduation, he immediately joined the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation Dental program in Bethel as a full-time Staff Dentist.
Over the next eight years, he worked for YKHC traveling around to over 35 villages providing dental services and then spent five years as Dental Director of the YKHC Dental program. During this time, he also served as clinical faculty for Lutheran Medical Center post-doctoral AEGD program, and clinical instructor for ASDOH and OHSU pre-doctoral externship programs.
When it was time to leave the YK Delta, Dr. Allgair first had a brief stint as Dental Director of a smaller CHC in Kenai and then opened a private practice in Sterling, Alaska; where he practices dentistry today.
When Dr. Allgair isnt giving his patients a bright smile, youll find him pursuing his love and passion for the outdoors! He loves fishing, hiking, motorcycling, spending quality time with his family and soaking up the beauty of Alaska!
