At Anderson Dental, our gentle and compassionate dentists, Dr. Scott Anderson, Dr. John Anderson, and Dr. Cesar Alburez, are known for their painless numbing before dental procedures and their unwavering commitment to patient care. They also have fantastic reputations when it comes to providing quality dentistry to generations of families in Champaign, Urbana, Savoy, Mahomet, Monticello, St. Joseph, and beyond.
The people of Champaign and the outlying communities are important to us, so much so that our dentists make time to treat dental emergencies even if you are not a regular patient. They also work hard to bring the latest techniques and technologies into our established dental practice. For them, dentistry is all about patient care and great outcomes.
The Anderson name in dentistry, established in 1961, is synonymous with legacy dentistry, and our doctors continue to uphold the values put forward by the Anderson dentists who came before them. They have also selected a team of dental professionals and support staff who share their commitment to patients and the community.
