About US

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 2012, Dr. Lee joined the team part time, and 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.


Office Manager

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, Angela 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 and her husband moved from the “rainy side” of the state many years ago, and together they enjoy camping, hunting, and fishing, along with their two daughters and their families.

“My favorite thing about Anderson & Zentz Dental is how dentistry impacts our patient’s lives, from relieving tooth pain to improving smiles … and to see our patients leave with a smile!” – Angela

Scheduling Coordinator

Marci has always wanted to work in the dental field, and we were so excited when she joined our team. Her positive attitude and welcoming personality have been a wonderful addition to our practice and patients and team members all recognize that. Marci is the first face most people will see when they enter our office, and she will find a solution to whatever your needs may be. Marci also loves talking to people about how to help their smiles shine the brightest, so if you have any questions, ask Marci: she knows!

Outside of our practice, Marci loves spending time with her family, and most especially her grandchildren. She can be found cooking or crafting at home or traveling with her family all around the area.



Jamie graduated from Eastern Washington University in Cheney, Washington, which happens to also be her hometown! During school, Jamie enlisted in the Army National Guard, and enjoys discussing her service with our many veteran patients. After school, she decided to attend the Dental Hygiene program at Columbia Basin College, which lead to her relocating to the Tri-Cities.

Outside of work, Jamie enjoys spending time with her two children and her husband, and when not involved in their children’s sporting activities, they can all be found camping at various places around the state.
