As the second youngest of six children, Dr. Anderson grew up in Douglas, Wyoming on a dairy farm. He decided to pursue this type of career when he was just a freshman in high school. His brother had recently been diagnosed with leukemia, and the experience of donating bone marrow to him was a catalyst for his lifelong interest in the medical field. Dentistry became his focus in particular because his older sister was currently attending hygiene school at that time.
After achieving an Associates of Science from Sheridan College, Dr. Anderson completed his Bachelor’s in Biology at the University of Wyoming. He then enrolled in dental school, graduating in 2012 from the University of Louisville with his Doctor of Dental Medicine. Following his schooling, he worked as the managing clinical director of a busy dental office in Grand Island, NE for two years before choosing to build his own dental office.

His continuing education includes the 3M mini implant course and courses in dental implants and bone grafting at the White Cap Institute. He is currently a proud member of the American Dental Association and Wyoming Dental Association.
