Dr. Jim Libby
Dr. Jim Libby is “living his dream” as he practices dentistry along side his son Justin, in Dr. Justin Libby’s office! It’s a win-win for both as Jim brings a wealth of experience, and he feeds off Dr. Justin’s enthusiasm and modern perspective utilizing the latest technology! Dr. Jim has a long and interesting dental history in Alaska. Graduating for Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1977 at the age of 23, he then opened his first practice in his hometown of Dillingham, AK. With the help of his wife, Pam Libby, they transformed a bedroom into an operatory in their home. Dr. Jim Libby and his family then moved to Anchorage where he grew his East Anchorage practice over the next 30 years to be a model of success in general and cosmetic practices in the state. Upon the sale of his “city office” in 2007, Dr. Jim Libby has kept his rural Dillingham, AK practice alive and well.
Currently serving as president of World Health Dental Organization (WHDO), Dr. Jim Libby’s position presents opportunity to continue growing leadership skills in unique and remote locations. The flagship project of WHDO is the Maasai Dental Clinic in Kenya, providing year round, free dental care and education to the Maasai people. Dr. Jim Libby also serves on the Share A Smile Board, is an active, lifetime member of The Crown Council and is a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry. Passionate about machines, Jim motorcycle races the Baja1000. His “over 60” team took first place in the 2015 and 2016 events. He continues to commercial salmon fish in Bristol Bay every summer with extended family, as he has done since he was 6 years old. Flying is at the top of his hobbies and has been a huge part of his Alaskan experience. Dr. Jim Libby shares his adventures with Pam, his wife of 38 years. They, along with their kids and granddaughter, look forward to lots more!
