Lori Aleksic D.D.S.

After growing up in Indianapolis, Indiana, Dr. Aleksic received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Arizona. She then returned home to attend Indiana University School of Dentistry. While there she met her husband, Dr. Karl Westenfelder, and participated in an externship taking her to the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. This experience sparked an interest in public health and led Dr. Aleksic to work for the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes in St. Ignatius. In 2000 Dr. Aleksic joined Dr. John Snively in private practice and Twin Cranes Dental Group was born.

For Dr. Aleksic dentistry is the perfect combination of art, science, and hands-on healthcare. She enjoys taking the time to develop a relationship of mutual trust with each patient and educating them about oral health and helping select the comprehensive treatment that best suits that individual's goals. It is important to be a collaborative team.

Dr. Aleksic, her husband and two children enjoy taking advantage of the many outdoor recreational activities and cultural events Missoula has to offer. They are avid cyclists, skiers, hikers, campers, boaters and art and music lovers.


Ryan Huckeby D.M.D.
Dr. Huckeby was born and raised in the mountains of rural Oregon. He and his wife Alisa moved to Montana to enjoy the outdoor life and raise a family. Upon arriving in Missoula, Dr. Huckeby helped guide a vision in Public Oral health in this community by volunteering to become the 1st Public Health Dentist at Partnership Health Center. While there he helped develop many health community programs while mentoring pre-dental students for Montana and out of state schools.

Dr. Huckeby is committed to community-wide oral health. He enjoys establishing personal relationships with his patients to create dental outcomes that meet or exceed expectations. Providing compassionate oral health care for all ages and across the continuum of life is a regarding practice that motivates Dr. Huckeby to work hard for all his patients.


Kyle P. Goroski D.M.D.

Dr. Goroski grew up on the Hi-Line in Shelby, Montana. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Biology from the University of Montana. Dr. Goroski later graduated from Arizona School Of Dentistry and Oral Health. During his undergraduate education, Dr. Goroski volunteered at Partnership Health Center where he met Dr. Huckeby.

Dr. Goroski enjoys working with patients from all walks of life to help them achieve the highest level of oral health, esthetics, and function in a comfortable and relaxing setting. Like is partners, Dr. Goroski views dentistry as a doctor-patient partnership, taking time to listen and understand the needs and desires of each person.

Our Dentists


I wanted to take a minute to commend Dr. Aleksic and Abby for a nice visit this morning.It all started with a friendly visit from Abby. She spoke clearly, positively and frequently. She told me and showed me what she was going to do, and how she was going to do it, and then check on me after it was done.

Again she spoke confidently and clearly. I felt at ease and in good hands. Dr. Aleksic was no different. She was very cordial, positive, and showed and told as well. Those are very good traits when you enter the dental office. She consistently checked to make sure all was comfortable during our process. I knew everything that was happening and pretty much why as well. Excellent. There was a nice standard standard set by Dr. Snively and continued and improved by the "new guys". Thanks for the experience very good.


For years I have had apprehensions about having dental work done in any way, shape, or form. Knowing this in advance, Dr. Goroski went above and beyond to make me feel at ease and ensure I was not in any pain or discomfort whatsoever. My “dental phobia” is starting to ease with every appointment. Many thanks to Dr. Goroski and the staff at Twin Cranes Dental Group for being so gracious & accommodating!


I can’t thank this office and team enough for taking care of me in a moment of crisis. To some people breaking a tooth might not be a big deal, but I was mortified! Thank you to the front office, for getting me in within an hour of calling! Thank you to Sherie and Kyle for fixing my tooth right up and being so kind and compassionate when I felt like an absolute moron for being so careless.


Also, thank you to the scheduler for taking the extra time to schedule my whole family and I appointments. She was so patient and kind! The whole experience was so NOT as humiliating as I thought it would be. So again, thank you everyone! Lastly, if you want to save a tooth, I recommend not taking a mom vacation with 9 other women. 😅 But if you need it, go to Twin Cranes Dental!

I have tried multiple dental clinics in Missoula and finally found the right fit. I was looking for a dentist that is patient and willing to discuss dental health in a wholistic way. Many dentists always appear to be rushed. I believe dentistry is more than just going in to get cleanings and fillings but rather looking into how diet, and our airways affect our dental health.


Dr. Huckeby was very knowledgeable on the benefits of nasal breathing and foods that can influence the inflammation of nasal mucous membranes which can ultimately lead to mouth breathing at night, which is not the best for oral hygiene. The staff is very friendly and professional and the clinic takes COVID-19 very seriously with air filters in the exam rooms, hygienic protocols, pre screenings, and follow up check ins to bring added comfort in knowing they are doing the best they can to take all precautions amidst the pandemic. I am grateful to have found a family clinic that cares.
