Robert Anderson, DDS, MSD
As an orthodontist, I love helping people feel good about themselves by giving them a beautiful smile! At this practice, it’s all about the patients. It's fantastic watching our patients see the changes to their teeth or looking in the mirror after getting their braces off, knowing that we helped them achieve such a fabulous result. Every patient is unique, and I enjoy getting to know them, whether they are children or adults.
I completed my undergraduate education at the University of California, Berkeley, graduating with my Bachelor of Science degree in Genetics. I attended the University of California, San Francisco, for my dental school, earning my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. I continued on to the University of the Pacific for my orthodontic residency and Master of Science degree in Dentistry.
Both my staff and I participate in continuing education to advance our knowledge about orthodontics and dentistry and to keep up on the latest techniques. I have been the chairman of continuing education for the local dental society, bringing in a wide range of experts in all dental fields. It is important to understand not only orthodontics but all disciplines of dentistry. For that, I am involved in an integrated dentistry study club, in which general dentists and specialists in different fields meet to discuss treatment planning of comprehensive cases. I do all this to ensure my patients receive the very best care possible.

I was born in Iran and moved to Los Angeles, California with my family as a child. I attended the University of California, San Diego majoring in biology with a minor in psychology. I chose to pursue a career in dentistry, combining my passion for helping people with the joy I find in creating art. I studied dentistry at the University of California, San Francisco and the I discovered a love for orthodontics. I enjoyed working with teens and adults to help them achieve a more beautiful smile and loved the long-term relationship that is built with patients over the course of orthodontic treatment. Therefore, after I received my doctorate degree, I attended University of Washington in Seattle to complete a residency in orthodontics.
After her residency, I returned to the SF Bay Area where my husband was working in tech. I am a member of the American Association of Orthodontists as well as the Pacific Coast Society and the California Association of Orthodontists.
