Doctor Chris has a special interest in using the latest dental technology when it's use will improve patient outcomes.  He also has mentored three of his recent dental assistants, Kennesaw University graduates, who are now studying at the Georgia Regents University (Medical College of Georgia) to become Dentists.  One of our current assistants, Liz, has those same aspirations.

Finally, Dr. Chris is a big StarWars fan. Check out some of our StarWars themed pictures when you are in the office.

Meet the Staff:

The hygienists employed in our office are licensed by the State of Georgia.  They participate in continuing education every year and have received advanced training and certification in preventive periodontal treatment.  Each of our hygienists is dedicated to increasing their knowledge and maintaining their professional skills to best serve you.  Every one of our hygientists have many years of experience.

Our hygienists coordinate your re-care appointments, and making sure that appropriate preventative treatment is maintained.  Seen in the picture to the left, from left to right are Kristin, Lori, and Christine.

Our dental assistants (Janet and Liz) are an integral part of our team.  Each of them has come to us because they share our beliefs and values.  They help our clinical team deliver the highest quality technical care that is possible and help ensure that you are comfortable during and after treatment is completed.  Three of Dr. Anderson's past assistants are now attending the Georgia Regents University (Medical College of Georgia), studying to be Dentists, and Liz is working on being number four.

You will appreciate our friendly administrative team, and their many years of experience at this office.  From left to right are Sue, Cleo, Michelle, Cathy and Mike.  Sue is amazing at remembering names (Sue works Mon, Tue, Wed), handles patient check-in's and outs, and scheduling.  Cleo is our insurance expert (on Monday and Wednesday's).  Michelle started here in October 2015 (and works Tuesday's and Thursdays), Cathy is the Office Manager on Monday's and Tuesday's while her husband, Mike is the Office Manager on Wednesday's and Thursday's.   Cathy's schedule does fluxuate occasionally based on the weather and pickleball.  Don't ask Cathy about pickleball unless you have an extra 15 minutes!  Cathy and Mike are Dr. Chris' parents.

We also try to have fun on occasion.
