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 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
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.
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.
We opened our doors at Douglas Anderson Orthodontics in 1988, and ever since then have been a mainstay in the community, making sure that children, teens, and adults get the brilliant smiles they deserve. Using state-of-the-art equipment in a warm and caring environment, we are dedicated to making sure you get the best treatment possible in a place that feels like home.
Comfortable, Stress-Free Environment
One of our staff's main concerns is that you are comfortable and at ease. We have created a peaceful, comfortable, and warm environment where you have a choice of reading materials, TV, and video games for the kids. We also have entertaining contests throughout the year to keep the family amused and engaged.
Communication is Key
At each visit, Dr. Anderson reviews the patient's progress, makes recommendations when needed, and welcomes any questions. Additionally, parents are welcome in the clinic area to observe their child's treatment so they can be informed every step of the way.

Our Staff's Path of Excellence
Our staff is also highly educated and informed when it comes to orthodontic practices. We believe in following a path of excellence in orthodontic training and techniques. In this regard, our entire staff is dedicated to attending continuing education courses to keep on top of the latest developments in computer technology, sterilization, digital photography, digital X-ray, and all the other constantly improving clinical advancements. Our focus on education keeps our team enthusiastic and stimulated in order to insure that your treatment is top notch.
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.
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.
