Our Doctors

Dr. Kirk and Dr. Jessica Robertson

Dr. Kirk and Dr. Jessica Robertson - Pediatric Dentists in Flagstaff and Lakeside, AZHow we could have missed Flagstaff as college students, I don't know! Maybe, it was a lack of funds or busy schedules. What a well-kept secret. Dr. Kirk and I met in high school and came to know Arizona as students at Arizona State University. We loved Tempe and made great friends while Kirk played football at ASU. Although we had a great disappointment when the Sun Devils lost to Ohio State, we realized what a great experience it was for Dr. Kirk to be so close to winning the National Championship along with his fellow teammates.

We received our dental degrees at Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) and returned to Southern California to attend the pediatric dental residency program at the University of California, Los Angeles. After enjoying the Northwest, with the pedestrian-friendly walks, urban trails and cooler climate, we soon found Flagstaff. It was our match. We love the outdoors, being so close to lakes, rivers and a community with sustainability in mind.

We love the small town feeling of Flagstaff and are so grateful to raise our two children in such a wonderful community. Because of this, we feel it is important to be a part of and give back to our community. We are actively involved with the Coconino Health Department through Give Kids a Smile and the Flagstaff Medical Center Breastfeeding Center.

Dr. Jacob Johnson

Dr. Jacob Johnson - Pediatric Dentist in Lakeside, AZMy name is “Dr. Jake” and I am grateful to call the White Mountains my home. I grew up in Mesa, Arizona and endured the hot summers there as long as I could. I lived abroad for two years in the Dominican Republic and learned to speak Spanish there while gaining a better world view and a tremendous amount of life experience serving others. Eventually I returned home, attended Arizona State University, met my wife and we began planning our great escape. In looking at dental schools we decided on Colorado. The mild summers and snowy winters in Denver were great. It was very hard to leave after our four years of dental school there were finished. Luckily, our next adventure proved just as rewarding. I moved the family to the Pacific Northwest to complete a general practice residency in Seattle, Washington. When I wasn’t on service in the hospital, I was usually hiking through the majestic forests there with my kids (if it wasn’t pouring rain of course). In need of more sunshine, we returned home to Arizona where I worked for the next two years as a general dentist. My greatest passion, however, was working with kids. Who else is willing to draw you a picture or bring you one of their toys when you help them to feel better? With my wife’s support we made a cross-country move to Rochester, New York where I pursued specialty training in pediatric dentistry at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health. We enjoyed an amazing community there with small town sentiments, a diverse culture and an abundance of you-pick farms.

Having travelled coast to coast, I am thrilled to be back in Arizona with my wife and four energetic children. Around the Mountain Pediatric Dentistry is an amazing group of doctors who put their whole heart into everything they do. I am proud to be a part of this group. When I am not doing dentistry I am usually enjoying the mountains with my family or exercising our Australian Shepherd mix.

When you enter our office we will strive to make your child’s experience the best that it can be. We promise to listen and to learn about your child needs. Once we better understand your expectations, we can then make recommendations tailored to your child’s unique circumstances. More than anything, we want to watch your child grow up healthy and happy.

Dr. David W. Ho

Dr. David Ho - Pediatric Dentist in Flagstaff and Lakeside, AZI am so excited to be part of such a wonderful community! I moved to Flagstaff from Prescott, Arizona, in October 2011. Born in Taiwan, I moved to Toronto, Canada at the age of 15, and I have found that I like the cooler weather in Northern Arizona. There are so many interesting places to explore and hike with my wife and two German Shepherds.

I met my wife in 2004 at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry where I attended dental school from 2002-2006, and she studied Dental Hygiene from 2003-2005. We enjoy traveling and spending time together with our families.

I then went on to complete my General Practice Dental Residency at the Medical College of Ohio in 2007, and received my certificate in Pediatric Dentistry as well as my Masters in Biomedical Science from the University of Toledo Medical Center in June 2009. After relocating to Arizona in July 2009, I received my Diplomate from the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 2010.

My favorite activities include playing the piano, painting with acrylics and watercolor, hiking, table tennis, basketball, reading and volunteering within the community.

I'm pleased to have found a practice home that mimics my personal philosophy and work ethic here at Around The Mountain Pediatric Dentistry. I will always listen and learn about your child's needs by recommending and providing treatment in the safest manner. The care your child receives will be gentle, informative and educational. I will treat your child as if they were my own family, with the utmost respect, compassion and highest quality dentistry. My goal is to transition your child into future adult dental care without any fear and/or reservations.

Dr. Crystal Bill

Dr. Crystal Bill, DMD - Pediatric Dentist in Flagstaff, AZThe stars have finally aligned! I am so excited to finally be able to call Flagstaff home again. Although I will always love my Midwestern roots, I really enjoy the beautiful mountains and sunshine of Arizona. I was born in Stevens Point, WI and raised in Mankato, MN. I moved to Arizona at the age of 20 and graduated from NAU in 2003 with a degree in Microbiology and minor in Chemistry and Spanish. During college I also lived in Argentina for a semester abroad.

Since I'd become accustomed to not having that full-body numbness you experience in Minnesota about nine months out the year, I decided to continue my education at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to complete a Degree in Dental Medicine in 2008. Upon graduation I worked as a General Dentist with a wonderful dental team in Tucson, AZ. It was there that I became interested in dentistry for children. I wanted to be able to provide the highest standard of dental care for kids, so I went on to complete a Residency in Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. I guess I just needed a taste of the cold again too.

I have worked with so many intelligent and caring people along the way. I have even had the opportunity to own my own practice, which has added to the level of care I can provide for patients. For me it IS all about the journey AND the destination. My husband, two kids and I are very excited to live in the community of Flagstaff. We enjoy the outdoors, fine-dining at kid friendly places, all things music and generally keeping our vibrations high!


Dr. Tina Ptacek

Dr. Crystal Bill, DMD - Pediatric Dentist in Flagstaff, AZI consider it such a blessing to be a part of Around The Mountain! I am a native to Arizona, and love living in the Grand Canyon State. I grew up in Peoria, Arizona, and graduated from Arizona State University. My husband and I met at ASU and love the Sun Devils! After college, I moved to Mesa, Arizona, where I attended Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health. After dental school, I joined a wonderful practice in Central Phoenix working as a general dentist and primarily seeing children. It was at this time that I discovered my passion for working with kids, and I decided to pursue a specialization in pediatric dentistry.

In 2010 I moved to Holyoke, Massachusetts where I completed a two-year residency in pediatric dentistry with Lutheran Medical Center. What an adventure! In 2012 I returned home to Arizona, and was fortunate to be a part of an outstanding pediatric dental practice on the West side of Phoenix through 2016. I am thrilled to be a part of Around The Mountain Pediatric Dentistry, where the doctors and staff have each and every child's best interest at heart. I consider it a great privilege to work with children, and strive to make each one of their dental visits positive, educational, and fun! When I am not in the office, you can find me spending time with my husband as we explore Northern Arizona. You can catch us at community events, hiking, mountain biking, and of course cheering on the ASU Sun Devils!
