Meet Dr. Craig Anderson
My first priority is to provide the highest quality endodontic services for my patients. I am passionate about what I do, and I love making a positive difference in my patients’ lives. Relieving people of pain is truly satisfying, and the reason I specialize in endodontics.
I decided to become a dentist because I enjoy working with people, I love science, and the results are immediate and gratifying. I have been practicing dentistry since 1997. In 2003, I went back to school to specialize in endodontics. I have been specializing solely in endodontics since 2005. This practice is truly my life’s work, and is the culmination of decades of hard work and a distinct vision. It is a privilege to be practicing as an endodontist, and I challenge myself every day to improve our services and patient care any way I can.
Education and Continuing Education
Before becoming an endodontist, I attended University of Southern California for my undergraduate education as well as for dental school. After graduation, I completed my General Practice Residency at Rancho Los Amigos Medical Center. I practiced general dentistry for five years before specializing in endodontics at University of Southern California.
I am always searching for better, higher quality endodontic treatments for my patients. I love learning about new technologies and approaches to my work, and how these may benefit those who come see me. I enjoy lecturing on endodontics to ensure emerging dentists have the most comprehensive education.
I believe in having well-rounded knowledge of all aspects of dentistry, and not just an understanding of root canals. I frequently attend many continuing education courses in all aspects of dentistry. I have found that this is of paramount importance when it comes to my patients dental health, diagnoses, and treatment of complex cases.

Outside the Office
I grew up in Orange County and currently live in Los Angeles. I have been in the area since 1991, and love our diverse community. My twin boys make for a very busy family life. If there is an unusual free moment then I enjoy listening to music, reading, and going to museums.
