Brian Anderson is originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, but has also lived in Portugal, Iowa, and Minnesota. Dr. Anderson has four beautiful children—three girls, and one boy.

Dr. Anderson graduated Summa Cum Laude from Brigham Young University, after which he attended dental school at the University of Iowa. As a dental student, he scored in the 97th percentile nationwide on the both the National Board Dental Exam Part I and Part II. Brian received his orthodontic specialty training at the University of Minnesota, also earning a Master of Science degree.

Dr. Anderson loves orthodontics and is lucky to feel what occupational psychologists call “flow”—a feeling of “energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process”—every day at work. His passion for orthodontics led him to create an orthodontic continuing education group called Orthodontic Pearls—one of the largest and most active in the world—where he enjoys teaching and learning with and interacting with orthodontist colleagues and friends. His personal personal interests include sports, exercise, art (he is a gallery-featured sculptor), foreign languages (Portuguese, and some Spanish), travel, community service, and spending time with friends and family.
