Just Treating Symptoms



Sandra C. Denton, MD is the founder and medical director of Alaska Alternative Medicine Clinic. Originally board certified in Emergency Medicine, she practiced as an emergency room physician and as her knowledge increased became Alaska's leading physician in alternative medicine. Dr Denton has been practicing medicine since 1971 and alternative medicine since 1985.


Dr. Denton has spoken internationally, has been a radio host, and is published. She specializes in mercury and heavy metal toxicity diagnosis and treatment and is one of only a handful of board certified MDs for chelation therapy.


Dr. Denton considers herself a "medical detective" skilled in identifying the causes and appropriate therapies for chronic and acute illnesses. She is a Diplomat of the American Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology, a member of the American College for Advancement in Medicine, The Institute For Functional Medicine, The Board of Chelation Therapy, as well as the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society and the only ILAD doctor in Alaska.







Alaska Alternative Medicine blends the best proven alternative medicine with conventional treatments to help you achieve optimal health and an improved quality of life.  

We do more than treat symptoms, we work to find the cause of illness, treating you as an individual with unique and very specific needs. For this reason, Dr. Denton spends approximately an hour or an hour and a half with you as a new patient, getting to know you and your needs on a personal level so you can receive the most personalized care possible.
We also help with nutritional counseling as we feel that nutrition is a gateway to health and recovery.

Alaska Alternative Medicine works to:


  • Delivers safe, effective, and proven alternative and conventional therapies

  • Discover the cause of illness and treat it, not just the symptoms 

  • Be compassionate and professional

  • Involve patients in their health care to achieve optimal health

  • Improve quality of life and sense of well-being
