Chad J. Anderson, MS, DMD or Adrina, DDS
Dr. Anderson believes that patient involvement and education are essential to successful treatment and beautiful smiles. With the use of dental photography and intra-oral images, he helps his patients visualize their treatment alternatives. Tailoring each procedure and treatment to the wants and needs of his patients, Dr. Anderson combines esthetic considerations with functional requirements. In addition to transforming and renewing smiles, he corrects bites and realigns jaw joints, balancing the concepts of esthetic smile reconstruction with functionality.
Dr. Anderson earned his Masters Degree in Biology from California State University, Fresno and was then accepted to the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine here in Boston, Massachusetts. During his four years of dental training he received numerous awards for academic achievement and was selected to the highly competitive honors teaching program where he mentored other dental students and performed various research projects. Dr. Anderson was very involved in research during his education at Tufts completing sixteen studies. This is more than any previous student in the school’s history. He has published several peer reviewed journal articles and numerous abstracts in the areas of materials and clinical research. Upon graduation he was appointed to the position of faculty professor at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. In 2012 Dr. Anderson was appointed to Adjunct Faculty at University of Tennessee College of Dentistry with the Department of Bioscience Research and to the Editorial Advisory Board for Inside Dentistry. He is currently on the Editorial Advisory Review Board for American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and California Dental Association Peer Review Board for Fresno Madera Dental Society. Dr. Anderson is working towards his Ph.D. in Biomedical Material at University of Siena, Italy.
Dr. Anderson’s practice philosophy is to treat every patient like they are part of his family with no compromises being made in treatment or materials. His compassionate and gentle manner is appreciated by his patients and has made many patients who were once fearful to see a dentist comfortable and relaxed during their procedures. This can only be understood by meeting the doctor and his staff and experiencing how dentistry and the doctor patient relationship should be.
