A New Mexico native, Dr. Anderson was born and raised in Silver City, the youngest of five siblings and the son of a dentist.

Besides helping patients feel comfortable with various sedation techniques, Dr. Anderson centers his practice on the philosophical premise of Biomimetic Dentistry. The Biomimetic ideal focuses on conserving as much natural tooth as possible and removing only damaged areas of tooth structure and using superior adhesive materials that are biocompatible with the human body to mimic nature.

In his free time, Dr. Anderson enjoys being active with his two children, Bella and Noah and their dog, Chancho. He can also be found on the tennis court, on the road cycling, or playing music.
