Creating Smiles . . . Building Confidence . . . Reaching Goals


WAO Orthodontists

Dr. Bas Wafelbakker, DMD

Since 1985, Dr. Wafelbakker has been providing his patients with top quality orthodontic care. He chose the oral health field because his grandfather was a dentist and he enjoyed the mix of using his mind, his hands, and socializing all at the same time. At the office, Dr. Wafelbakker loves making people smile. His practice is a friendly and warm place, where both staff and patients have a lot of fun. Interacting with patients is one of his favorite aspects of his job, and seeing patients coming from up to a third generation, can be a very gratifying experience. Dr. Wafelbakker feels like his patients are like family and treats them with the utmost care.

Dr. Chris Anderson DDS, MSD

Dr. Chris M. Anderson is passionate about helping people express their happiness and inspire confidence with a beautiful smile.

Joining Dr. Wafelbakker’s practice in October of 2006, Dr. Anderson has enjoyed the opportunity to interact with so many interesting people every day, which enriches both his personal and professional life.
