Lead Dentist
It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 16 years since I stepped off a plane at the Anchorage airport and immediately saw Dr. Michael Darling’s giant polar bear in the old Alaska Airlines terminal. Little did I know that I would soon meet Michael and Lucy Darling and go on to work with them for over a decade.Now that the Darlings are enjoying a well-earned retirement, I am excited to be at Anchorage Dental Group.

Chelsie Daughtry

Dental Hygienist
I grew up in Northern California where I spent most of my life on the Sacramento River enjoying the sunshine and boating. After high school I went to Shasta College in Redding California and graduated in 2002 from the dental hygiene program. I met my husband in college, we married and moved down to San Diego for him to finish out his time in the Marine Corps. After living in San Diego for several years we moved to Texas for my husband to go to school. We moved to Alaska in 2015 for my husband‘s job and really enjoy outdoors here. We love to hunt, fish, camping and hiking. We have three kids ages 16, 15 & 12 and we have three dogs.
Stacy Minkler

Stacey Minkler

Dental Hygienist
Born and raised Alaskan she graduated from Service high school. She has been in the dentistry field for over 20 years! She took classes at UAA to pursue dental hygiene and graduated with magna cum laude honors in 2006. Her dental hygiene career began at The Darling Dental group until Dr. Darling retired in 2015. Stacy worked at Artic Family Dental until the practice merged with Anchorage Dental Group. One of Stacy’s favorite things is seeing her long time patients and meeting new ones that come to ADG. She strives to be thorough and puts her patient care first. She will always treat each patient individually and cater towards their needs.

Outside of hygiene, Stacy has another career as a horseback riding instructor and horse trainer. Her students compete in the show ring and she is also very active in the horse show community. Her husband is a captain at the fire department and they have two amazing daughters. Her oldest daughter is a dental assistant in town and her youngest is a sophomore in high school.

Stacy is well known among her patients for being thorough, yet gentle in her treatment. Whether you need a deep cleaning (scaling and root planing), a pre-radiation/chemo/surgery cleaning or simply a prophy (standard cleaning) you are in good hands with Stacy!
