As the second youngest of six children, Dr. Anderson grew up in Douglas, Wyoming on a dairy farm. He decided to become a dentist when he was a freshman in high school. His brother had just been diagnosed with leukemia, and the experience of donating bone marrow to him was a catalyst for his interest in pursuing a career in the medical field. He was drawn to dentistry in particular because his older sister was in hygiene school during that time. He began his academic studies at Sheridan College where he achieved an Associates of Science degree. Then, he attended the University of Wyoming, earning his Bachelor's Degree in Biology. He then earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from The University of Louisville, graduating in 2012. After that, he worked as the managing clinical director of a busy dental office in Grand Island, NE for two years. He then decided to build a brand-new practice in Lovell because he believes it’s a great place to raise a family, and he could see a clear need for exceptional dental care in the area!
Dr. Anderson’s main goal for our practice is to put his experience and skills to work by spending quality time with our patients and helping them avoid having to travel hours away to see specialists. As a general dentist, his areas of expertise include molar endodontics, wisdom tooth extractions, dental implants, removable prosthodontics, and cosmetic dentistry. He has attended several continuing education courses, including the 3M mini implant course and training in dental implants and bone grafting at the White Cap Institute. He is a member of the American Dental Association, and the Wyoming Dental Association.
What Dr. Anderson enjoys most about being a dentist is that it gives him the ability to make a positive change in peoples’ lives. He enjoys helping his patients regain their beautiful smiles and their self-confidence. He also likes the social aspect of dentistry. It allows him to develop long-lasting friendships. Plus, being around people all day is just a lot of fun.
Dr. Anderson married his wife Tiffany shortly after returning from a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Fort Worth. They have five kids – Parker, Kaeson, Macie, Oakley, Jayda and Jax. When he’s not busy at the office, he enjoys playing sports, hunting, fishing, and spending time with his family.
