Major AnnaLee S. Kruyer, MA,DDS, FAGD is not your typical dentist. She has been featured on the Montel Williams show, she completed an extreme dental makeover on national television (the Tony Danza Show), recipient of many national awards (and others) in dentistry:

She is currently featuring SIX MONTH BRACES. This new technique allows us to safely straighten teeth quicker, with less pain, and IT COSTS LESS! We offer a free consultation for every patient.
Dr. Kruyer is the mother of 6 children: Tynica was born on month after graduating with her Hon.B.Sc.degree. Jonathan was born 4 months after Dr. Kruyer received her MA in Clinical Neuro Psychology.
Our next move was to Milwaukee WI where AnnaLee received her D.D.S. cum laude, from the Marquette School of Dental Medicine. On the morning of Tuesday, September 8, 1998 AnnaLee was in dental school, that afternoon, Teresia was born. Friday afternoon, September 11, 1998, AnnaLee was back at school. Anica was born between 3rd and 4th year of dental school.
There was a betting pool as to how much time AnnaLee would take off from Dental School after Baby (Teresia) Kruyer would be born. One professor (based on prior experience with other female dental students) bet 2 years - her lab partner won (he was the only one who believed AnnaLee when she said she would take 1 week off) - there wasn't a betting pool for Baby (Anica) Kruyer.
Alpha Sigma Nu is a Jesuit Honor that starts with the top (scholastic) 15% of students graduating from Jesuit Universities. Then, based on their service to the community, profession and religion, the top 2% were indicted into the Society. Right after dental school, we (the whole family) drove to San Antonio TX where my wife received her OBC (Officer Basic Course) training. This was the largest class ever, which consisted of nurses, veterinarians, doctors, surgeons and dentists. AnnaLee was the Distinguished Honor Graduate.
We then moved to Fort Benning GA where my wife completed (and was the honor graduate of) her 1 year general dentistry residency. On to Fort Leonard Wood MO, where AnnaLee was soon to become the 3rd highest producing general dentist in the army (at that time). Fort Hood TX then pulled AnnaLee into the 502nd and deployed to Kuwait/Iraq in March of 2003. Our children were 2,4,6 and 8 years old. This experience was an extreme hardship and an amazing experience for all. Some of her experiences have been written up for the AGD (Dentists on the frontlines, AGD impact, Feb 2004) and the AACD (Academy Connection Nov/Dec 2004) - see also http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/t/toothmiracle.htm.
She did dentistry (on our soldiers) in Sadam's Dental Chair (in the Green Zone), and was able to visit the ancient Babylonian Hanging Gardens, King Nebakanezer's throne room, and stand in the gate where king Darius asked Daniel if God had saved him from the Lions. AnnaLee returned from Iraq on her husband's birthday (Feb) in 2004. Shortly there after, dr. Kruyer moved to Las Vegas NV where we built her own dental practice from scratch.
On August 5th, 2006, AnnaLee received her Fellow from the AGD (Academy of General Dentists). Nationwide, only about 3% of dentists receive their fellow in the course of their career. Four months later, Iysha) was born. Iysha is special in her own way. All 4 previous children were conceived in the first month (or 2) that we tried. Iysha took 5 years of trying. The doctors don't know why, we don't know why. She just did. We turned an office into a nursery, and took Iysha to the practice with us. She stayed in the office for almost 2 years. As our patients would come for their dental appointments, instead of asking how ya doin Over half would ask Where's the baby!!! Can I PLEASE hold her?! I breaks my heart to see wannabe grandparents (people with 2,3 or 4grown children, and zero grandbabies).
They are the ones that almost come more to see our baby than to get their teeth worked on! Our newest baby, Tia is currently coming to the office with us! Dr. Kruyer has been on the Board for the Southern Nevada Dental Society for the past 2 years, and is currently serving her 3rd term. Dr. Kruyer has been an Adjunct instructor at the UNLV School of Dental Medicine for over 3 years. She is an Accreditation Candidate in the AACD, the only female dentist to achieve this level of expertise in the AACD in all of Nevada (and only 2 other male dentists in Nevada have currently achieved this level as well).
She has been part of the give kids a smile day multiple times, done free dental work for the one day dental program in our office and at the dental school, has donated to the give back a smile program through the AACD (restoring the broken and damaged teeth of survivors of domestic violence).

Always on time. great dental work. organized and clean office. Jamie is the best dental hygienist I've ever come across and makes my oral health so easy to upkeep. Dr. Kruyer does fantastic and thorough checkups and it's so wonderful to see how the staff are happy to be there. makes for a comfortable visit. There are always plenty of parking and it's so convenient since it's located right off Russell and 215. The office is opened very early so 9-5ers can get an appointment in before their job without taking time off. All in all a top notch dental care team and facility that I regularly recommend to friends and family.

Dr. AnnaLee Kruyet has been our dentist for 7 years. Her work is impeccable. But it's how her office is run & their attitude toward the clients. Nothing less than amazing. I remember well their daughter first coming to their office. Sure enough, there seemed to be a line to look in on her just to smile & say hi. I had been worried that I would end up with dentures in a few years due to the fear I had of dentists & not being able to tolerate the pain of dental work. They worked with me & I know I'm not going to end up with dentures now, thanks to Dr Kryer & her staff. The work she has done for people though out the world is no less that amazing.

Personable, professional, quality service. Staff is 1st class and work together well. You sense that they strive to deliver the best care based on what the individual patient requires.
I've never had a bad experience at Kruyer Dental. The staff is always so kind, welcoming and in a happy mood. Dr. Kruyer has such a big heart and I think her stellar staff is a reflection of the great woman they work for. Beyond the superstar staff, they also provide superstar quality dental work. For years I've been going to our family dentist for the routine cleaning, but after having ortho work done with Dr. Kruyer I decided I wanted to see her every 6 months! Very happy with their services!
I wish I could remember. I had a deep cleaning as well as a deep sleep. What is do remember was the staff always smiling as they checked on me. No pain and very clean teeth, thank you
Dr. Kruyer and her staff are the best dentists I have every seen. For the first time in my life, I'm not terrified to go to the dentist! I will never go to any other dentist.
Dr Kruyer is they best dentist ive seen. She works miracles with teeth and should write a book on friendliness. Thanks you so much. She knows her stuff as well. Myself and family been using them for over 10 yrs. Love you guys
I have a very deep phobia about dental procedures. Dr. Kruyer and her staff are the very best team in the valley for treating patients like me. Very calm and relaxing and focused on making sure I am comfortable. I have been to a number of dentist before who have seemed to be piling on procedures. Not Dr. Kruyer, any procedure was clearly explained to me and some that were recommended by other dentists were explained in a manner which I understood. I truly felt I was able to make choices that were in my best interest and dental health, vs what may be best for the practitioner's bottom line.
