About Us

Our Philosophy

Dr. Thor Anderson and the Yahara Dental team strongly believe that preventing dental disease, keeping your mouth healthy and keeping your body healthy can save you money and time in the future. Regular dental exams, X-rays and preventive care all work to help protect against advanced dental disease.

As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That is why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only is Yahara Dental focused on the beauty of your smile, we also care about your overall health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

The mission of Yahara Dental is to treat the dental needs of adults and children in a caring and professional atmosphere. Our goal is to treat each patient who enters this practice with warmth, friendliness and respect – just as we would treat a guest in our home. We make it a priority to give our patients a positive experience in our office while rendering them free of dental disease and educating them on ways to prevent further problems. Our goal is to prevent dental disease and to perform the minimal amount of dentistry necessary to help you save your teeth and achieve or maintain the level of oral health that you desire. In order to do that, we must work together very closely. We will always recommend what we feel is best for you.

We take great pride in our staff working together as a team to achieve the mission of our practice. The Yahara Dental team is a small family where each member is valued for his or her individual contribution. The positive and cheerful attitude of all team members makes for a pleasant workday as we provide the best possible service to our patients. Our patients’ dental health is our absolute top priority. We want you, our patient, to be comfortable and relaxed during your dental visits.
