How’s business? Excellent, thanks to the referrals of existing and former patients along with sustained referrals from our family dentists and their staffs.

Collectively, Dr. Anderson and his staff have more than 200 years of experience in bringing smiles to their patient’s faces.

Advice to young entrepreneurs: Pursue a career that you are passionate about and that you are happy doing because it will show in how you perform and in everything that you do.

Your first job: My first job was at McDonald’s. I only worked there for about six months. The one thing I learned from working there is how to deal with the public.

Your role model (in business or in life generally): My role model is Tammy Carr of Carrsville. She is the most positive, caring person, and she always sees the good in everyone. Tammy’s life exemplifies what it is to be a true Christian. She inspires me every day.

The key to a successful business is: Treating all patients as you would like to be treated yourself
