Dr. Adam Shepherd

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.

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.
