    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

    Douglas Anderson says...

    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.

    A Passion for Orthodontics

    Dr. Anderson knew that he had found his passion in orthodontics. 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. He opened a practice in the Taylorsville/West Valley area in 1988 and then expanded his patient care to South Jordan in 1996.

    Achievements and Associations

    • Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society
    • American Association of Orthodontists
    • American Dental Association
    • Utah Association of Orthodontists
    • Utah Dental Society
    • Rocky Mountain Association of Orthodontists
    • Northern Utah Orthodontic Study Group

    Dr. Anderson also served as a member of the board for the Utah Association of Orthodontists for six years and was president from 2006-07.

    Something Personal

    Dr. Anderson and his wife, Lorraine, reside in South Jordan and have four children, two sons-in law and 3 beautiful grandchildren. Family hobbies include enjoying the mountains on ATV's, having friends over for a swim and some great BBQ, attending concerts and plays, and traveling all over the world. Dr. Anderson enjoys woodworking and has done some beautiful projects in their home and yard.

    Children's Growth and Guidance Program

    We know that parents often don't know when it is the best time to start their child's treatment. 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.

    Adult Treatment

    More and more adults are seeking to correct oral problems that have bothered them for years. We make it comfortable and affordable to seek treatment to give you the peace of mind and confidence gained from a perfect bite and radiant smile.
