A Note from Dr. Anders

“It is my pleasure to be a part of the Black Mountain, North Carolina community. I would like to invite you as a concerned and conscientious neighbor to experience dentistry with our unique philosophy. While we are primarily concerned about your dental health, we want you to be aware of the many ways your dental health affects your overall health and quality of life. We hear often that those new to the Black Mountain and Asheville area, moved here to improve their quality of life and fulfill some of the purpose and passion they feel has eluded them. Poor dental health can interfere with your plans to get your dream job, a desired spouse and/or to have the self-esteem and self-respect to meet new friends or seek new opportunities.

You have choices that can help you smile with confidence. There are life-enhancing dental treatments that are delivered comfortably with less time and are more affordable than you realize. We would like to share these dental options with you.

Our dental office is focused on raising your level of dental fitness through a co-discovery of your goals and needs. We achieve this by creating a dental plan based on your priorities so you can progress toward a healthier smile in a friendly environment where we respect your individuality. Whether you have many dental problems or none at all, we want you to be part of our dental family.”

–Dr. Deborah G. Anders, DDS, PA

I've been the happiest with Dr. Anders dental work than any other DDS I've seen in my 64 years. She has been gentle, caring and thorough and made both temporary and permanent crowns that fit well and look good.
