Dr. Douglas M. Anderson has been creating beautiful and technically excellent smiles since 1988. A native of Utah, his roots go back to the farm where early on he learned how to work hard as the eighth of ten children. The Anderson fences were the straightest and the sturdiest in the county, and that eye for exactness and the value of a job well done has always been Dr. Anderson's mantra. Education Education was highly valued in the Anderson home. After graduating as valedictorian from South Sevier High School, Dr. Anderson moved on to Brigham Young University. Taking two years out to serve a mission for his church, he graduated from BYU in 1982. He went on to dental school at Baylor University in Dallas, Texas where he distinguished himself by graduating in 1986 with Second Highest Honors (cumulative four-year GPA). He then sought a place in an orthodontic residency program (an opportunity offered mainly to those graduating in the top 1-5% of their dental school class) and chose to stay at Baylor.

He completed his two-year curriculum in 1988 with a perfect 4.0 grade average and earned his Master's Degree in Craniofacial Biology/Orthodontics.

Children's Growth and Guidance Program

Some problems need to be addressed early in a patient's growth, so we monitor your child's progress at no charge to be sure that treatment is started at the optimum time. We also know that sometimes it is hard for your little one to understand the importance of early treatment so we help you keep your child's treatment on track by providing positive motivation.
