Accepting new patients

Dr. Douglas M. Anderson has been creating beautiful and technically excellent smiles since 1988. A native of Utah, his values 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 approach. 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.
