Starting small, Anderson & Zentz Dental has been able to tailor the practice to best suit the needs of our patients over the past decade. Starting in 2008, he incorporated CEREC® technology, which allows for porcelain crowns to be completed in one visit. In 2009, Dr. Anderson began placing implants. In 2010, due to the tremendous growth of the practice and constraints of the original office location, Dr. Anderson moved the practice to its current location. In 2014 Dr. Zentz joined the practice and is now a full-time partner in the practice. Thanks to many hours Dr. Anderson and Dr. Zentz invest each year in continuing education, we are able to offer to our patient’s same day crowns (CEREC®), implants, implant dentures, periodontal surgery, oral surgery, clear braces and more.
Meet the team
Dr. Loren Anderson
Loren is originally from Sunnyside, Washington and attended Brigham Young University and then the University of Oklahoma. Loren started private practice in 2004 and that practice has steadily grown into the thriving practice it is today. Loren enjoys all aspects of dentistry, with an emphasis on surgical procedures (grafting, implants, periodontal surgeries, and so forth).
Loren and his wife, Danielle, are the proud parents of seven children, and they reside in Kennewick. In his spare time, Loren likes to travel and spend time outdoors, boating on the river or riding motorcycles on the dunes. In addition to his family and work activities, Loren also participates in politics through his elected position on the Kennewick City Council.
Dr. Ryan Zentz
Ryan comes from Spokane, Washington and he attended both Washington State University (undergraduate degree) and the University of Washington (DDS degree). Ryan’s passion for dentistry stems from a personal life experience: he was born with a cleft lip and palate, which resulted in him receiving over 12 major surgeries as a child. From those experiences, Ryan decided to dedicate himself to providing such excellent treatment as he received. His goal is to provide the same level of confidence and care he was fortunate to receive during his own dental journey.
Outside of dentistry, Ryan and his wife, Mehak (also a dentist), enjoy spending family time together and with their daughter, and spending time outdoors fishing, or golfing.
When Dr Anderson began practice in 2004, Angela was one of the first to join the young team. She began as a dental assistant and later moved from chairside to front office. Through those experiences, she understands all aspects of treatment for Dr Anderson and Dr Zentz. She is a great asset to the practice, especially for those new to our practice family. Angela loves spending time with her husband, daughters and their families enjoying the outdoors. Especially spending time out in the field with the families hunting dogs.
