About Dr. Sanders
Dr. Sanders was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana by two loving parents, an older brother and a supportive village of family and friends. After participating as a triathlete through high school, Dr. Sanders beat the odds and received an academic scholarship to Tuskegee University in Alabama where he received a B.S. in Biology and then went on to earn a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from Howard University College of Dentistry in Washington, DC. where he served as President of the Class and Vice President of the Student National Dental Association. Becoming a dentist had been a life-long dream since third grade and through hard work and determination he reached that goal.
Dr. Sanders loves being a dentist and he is particularly grateful for the opportunity to give back to the community through service and mentorship. His most memorable experiences were serving in multiple communities in Jamaica where he provided emergency dental care to hundreds of families and children who traveled for miles, serving for Remote Area Medical Volunteer Corps and having the opportunity to work with Indian health Services. What he appreciates the most about dentistry is the ability to put smiles on faces every day changing the stereotype of office visits. Dentistry is also a confidence booster and he strives to change the lives of adults and children.
In his free time, Dr. Sanders enjoys spending time with his fiancée, family, friends, watching football (Go Colts), exercising, being a movie connoisseur, dancing and traveling.
