Although away from Atlanta since Emory University School of Dentistry graduation, Dr. Anderson kept his Georgia dental license active since 1975. The reasons were twofold. First was military service from 1971 through retirement as a full Colonel in 1994. The then Lieutenant Anderson received acceptance to a highly competitive military scholarship program to attend Emory, but the Air Force never allows anyone to stay in one place for long. Second, he loved Atlanta and hoped to return one day which has indeed happened.
Dr. Anderson began a three year prosthodontic residency at University of Texas Houston and received a postdoctoral M.S. in 1980. After practicing full range prosthodontic procedures for over 20 years in both the military and private practice, he has sub-specialized in dentures, partials and implant retained dentures since 2002. When asked about the reason for this subspecialty choice, he says it is his “true calling”.
