About Us

Cozy Gahanna dental patient waiting areaAnderson Family Dental has been around since 1968, and in that time, we’ve formed three basic tenants when it comes to our care:

We know this makes our practice a little different than most, but that’s just how Dr. Joy Todd likes it. She doesn’t want everyone to have a perfect Hollywood smile—she simply wants her patients to be as healthy as possible and be the best versions of themselves. The results end up being more natural, functional, and sustainable over the long term.

Of course, all of the care we provide will be of the highest quality. We want to form a relationship with you, and that starts with trust, and we’re sure we’ll earn that after your first appointment. Also, we don’t mind letting our personalities shine through. Dr. Todd and our team enjoy having fun at work as much as anyone, and it really goes a long way in helping our more nervous patients relax. When you’re with us, we’ll always treat you like an old friend, and you’ll walk out with a beautiful smile every time.

Judgement Free Zone

One of the big reasons people avoid going to the dentist is because they believe they’ll be judged negatively on the condition of their teeth. We consider this self-defeating at best, because if a person didn’t care about their teeth, they wouldn’t come to see us in the first place! We’ll never make you feel like you’ve “messed up.” Plus, if you’re feeling anxious about your next appointment, we won’t make you feel self-conscious about that either. We’ll just do everything we can to make sure you’re nice and relaxed.

A Variety of Dental Services

Like we mentioned earlier, when you come to see us, you’ll always have treatment options. We offer a variety of preventive, restorative, cosmetic, and implant dentistry services in addition to TMJ/TMD and sleep apnea therapy. What this means is that you and Dr. Todd will be able to find the right treatment that works for you each and every time. Nothing is one-size-fits all here. Each person has different needs, and we’ll put in the extra effort to meet every single one of them.

The Choice is Always Yours

Of course, with all of these treatment options, it would be silly if we told you which one to get. Our job is simply to let you know every option you have, and the final decision is ultimately up to you. We’ll make sure you know everything you need to make a confident decision. It’s your smile, so you should have a say in it. We’ll answer any questions you have, and we’ll always seek alternatives if you want them. With us, you’re not just a patient, but an active partner in your dental care.

High-Quality Dentistry

Even though we have a wide variety of services at our disposal, that doesn’t mean the quality of your care will suffer. Dr. Todd and our team have years of education, training, and experience with each and every procedure so that you can trust you’ll get the best results each and every time. At Anderson Family dental, we put function above everything else, which means we’ll make sure your smile feels great before doing anything else.   We won’t let you leave our office until you are completely satisfied.

Community Involvement

At Anderson Family Dental, it’s important for us to feel like we are part of the community. By being active in it, we’ll get to know more people and learn about everything that is going on around us. In the end, this will ultimately help us provide a higher quality of care. Also, we understand it’s the community that allows us to follow our passion for helping people, so we participate in a number of organizations as a way of saying “thank you” to everyone, as well as provide care to those who normally can’t get it.

We frequently volunteer for an organization called Dreams on Horseback, whose goal is to help a variety of people through interactions with these majestic animals. They offer equine therapy, equine assisted learning, Alzheimer’s sensory experiences, vocational training, services for veterans, and even offer field trips for the little ones. They’ve achieved amazing results, and we’re proud to be a part of it.
