Our Practice

Come feel the difference nice people make

Welcome to Mountain City Dental, conveniently located near the heart of Johnson County. Our professionals know that dental health is not just about white smiles: it’s about having strong teeth and healthy gums. It’s about prolonging the simple joy of eating delicious things! Our mission is to help our patients accomplish these goals in a painless, compassionate, and efficient way.

We aim to educate our patients in a safe environment while offering them necessary comprehensive care. We understand that many people have anxiety about dental treatment, so we created a soothing environment and a scheduling system that never keeps you waiting long. By combining technology with traditional techniques, we give our patients the best care in Mountain City.


Brad Andersen, D.M.D.

A native of Marietta, Georgia, Dr. Brad Andersen received his bachelor’s degree in biology from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and earned his doctorate of dental medicine degree from the Dental College of Georgia in Augusta.

For two years, Dr. Andersen served as a missionary for his church in Mexico City, Mexico. While living there, he developed a love for the culture and people — and spicy food!

While Dr. Andersen has practiced in various clinics, his heart is in providing care to the undeserved. He has volunteered with the Georgia Mission of Mercy. He was also heavily involved with the Hispanic Dental Association. For years, he volunteered at a local farm, where he provided oral health care screenings and hygiene instruction to migrant workers and underprivileged members of the community. Because of this involvement, he was the recipient of the Academy of Dentistry International Student Servant Leadership Award.

Most recently he accompanied a group of medical professionals to Belize. His group was the first set of dentists in the village to offer dentistry in over four years.

Dr. Andersen enjoys mountain biking and photography. He and his wife, Courtney, enjoy hiking together with their son and two dogs, along with kayaking, scuba diving and traveling. They look forward to raising their family in Mountain City.
