Dr. Arland is from Jackson, Wyoming but currently lives in Martin. She graduated with honors from the University of Wyoming in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Health Promotion. In 2016, she earned her Master of Science in Health and Human Performance from Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas.

Dr. Arland specializes in General Dentistry and Oral Health at the Martin Dental clinic.

Arland specializes in general dentistry and oral health, and has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry, the public health field and school-based dental programs. She received the Academy of General Dentistry Student Award UNMC in 2024 and is a former USA National Miss Wyoming. Arland has published the article “Determining Inflammatory Cell Profile Post-Extraction,” for the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry’s Department of Periodontics.

“Going into healthcare, I always knew that I wanted to be a provider that served in a rural area,” Arland said. “It’s often our hardest working, blue collar, ‘backbone of the country’ population that get forgotten about or neglected when it comes to health. Horizon’s focus and values toward patient opportunity-both financially and geographically-are aspects that I appreciate and stand behind. Being able to live in an area that lets me enjoy the same lifestyle as my patients, while also being their dentist, neighbor and friend is huge.”

Arland worked as a dental assistant at Horizon during her breaks from dental school. She was employed from 2017-2020 as a surgical assistant at Black Hills Oral Surgery. She was a wellness specialist at Campbell County Memorial Hospital, and a chiropractic assistant at the Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center of Jackson Hole.

Arland loves spending time at the ranch she shares with her fiancé, their four dogs, four dwarf goats and cattle. When not in the dental office she can be found in the field driving tractors, working cows, gardening or baking. Growing up in Jackson and spending time in the Black Hills instilled a love of everything outdoor related from hunting to fishing and horseback riding. She serves as a volunteer 4-H judge and has shared her skills as a volunteer at the St. Francis Mission Dental Clinic in St. Francis, South Dakota.
