Our Doctors

We treat  your child as we would our own child.

Pediatric Smiles Doctor

Dr. Adam Shepherd

Pediatric Dentist

As a board certified Pediatric Dentist, Dr. Shepherd has focused his practice on a passion for non-invasive dentistry for children. He graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in 2009, and takes great pride in developing caring relationships with parents and especially with his child patients, making visiting the dentist a great experience for both the child and parents. This “Our Child” philosophy has carried him into community involvement with children having less fortunate dental needs in areas of Utah and throughout the world.
Pediatric Smiles Doctor

Dr. Dave Anderson

Pediatric Dentist

Having taught 5th grade prior to dental school, Dr. Anderson learned the importance of making every new experience fun for your child. He brings to our pediatric dental team an added passion to make all visits to the dentist not only fun, but safe, and educational. Dr. Anderson graduated dental school with honors from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, and completed his Pediatric Dental Residency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, which is ranked the #3 children’s hospital in the nation.

Dr. Anderson feels blessed that he gets the opportunity to give back to not only the community by providing great dental care, but to parts of the world as well. Every year, he goes on a humanitarian trip to Honduras to provide free dental work to Hondurans who normally wouldn’t have access to the type of world-class care he provides to them. Dr. Anderson has provided relief to hundreds of people in Honduras and looks forward to the trip each year.

Dr. Anderson's family of six moved back to Utah in 2017 to enjoy all the outdoor activities. They enjoy skiing, paddle boarding, hiking, and mountain biking. When not working or spending time outdoors, Dr. Anderson is involved in the community through coaching multiple sports teams each hour. He also enjoys searching for great new restaurants in the Utah and Salt Lake Valleys.

Pediatric Smiles Client

Dr. Erick Lund

After returning home from his service he received his bachelor’s degree from Utah State University and graduated Cum Laude.

With this added expertise he practiced as a successful general dentist for three years. He was then selected for the University of Louisville's renowned residency program to become an Orthodontic Specialist.

His unique and comprehensive skill-set expanded as an Orthodontist for the US Army in Europe. Teaming up with Oral Surgeons to treat the most complex cases of military children, teens, and soldiers. He fully retired from the US Army in 2019.

He has been married for 15 years to his sweet wife Mandy. Together they have three children. He speaks Swedish and has a great love for Europe from his days as a missionary in Sweden and from living in Germany with the Army. He enjoys mountain biking, playing sports with his family, a good movie and playing the piano. He is grateful to once again call Utah home and is excited to be teamed up with Pediatric Smiles.

Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric Smiles of Utah provides comprehensive pediatric dental care for children of all ages.


Pediatric Smiles is proud to offer orthodontic services and care to patients of all ages.


When cavities on baby (primary) teeth are small we are able to restore them with a tooth colored filling material.


When there’s a dental emergency like trauma, our doctors feel it’s best to see your child in our office.


At Pediatric Smiles, we strongly recommend the placement of sealants on both baby (primary) and adult (permanent) teeth.

Root Canals

When decay reaches the nerve/pulp of the baby tooth a pulpotomy or baby root canal is necessary.

My kids love this place. They ask to go to the dentist all the time and have even made a paper countdown chain for their next visit. The TVs in the ceiling and their choice of show on Netflix is always a winner.

Cameo Bell

So wonderful with my boys. Their patience and kindness made what could have been a horrible experience a great one.

Traci Beiber

They try their best to keep out of pocket price low. Fun environment. Staff friendly. Knowledgeable dentists. Train set in waiting room which causes my kids to not want to leave.

Trey Harper

Doctor and staff are personable and welcoming. For my kids, pediatric smiles made dentist trips easy. They no longer fear the dentist. Plus, the cost is equal to our family dentist.
