Morgan L. Andersen DDS
Dr. Andersen grew up in southeast Idaho, gleaning experience and work ethic from the farmland. Most of the jobs for youth out there were hard labor agricultural jobs, but it was good for young Dr. A.... Real good.
He left the area with a BA in Science from Idaho State University in 1981, and went on to dental school at the University of Washington. There he worked just as hard, graduating with honors as #2 in the class of 1985. During dental school, Dr. A was blessed to see his family grow. When he left UW, he and his wife Julie moved on to open private practice with their three children.
Dr. A loves dentistry, but he loves the opportunity to serve people and be a part of their team for better health even more. He works well with all ages, and really puts his attention into you, the individual, where it matters the most. As a dentist this is what he has been doing for 25 years, and is what he will always be doing.
Of course when the salmon are running in the Northwest, Dr. A is going to go out and try to catch some fillets to share with the office. (That means he is nuts about fishing!) He likes to be outdoors in all seasons, even helping the Boy Scouts have fun out there in the woods. Life is good; especially because he is loved by his wife and four children.
