Meet Dr. Chip

Ralph H.B. "Chip" Anderson, D.D.S., M.S.

Dr.-R.-Chip-Anderson.pngDr. Ralph H.B. "Chip" Anderson, better known to his patients as Dr. Chip, followed in his father's footsteps, pursuing a career in orthodontics. He has been practicing for 17 years and started working with his father in 1997. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Hampton University and enlisted in the U.S. Army, where he became a Captain. While stationed in Ft. Ord, California, he decided to enroll at the Medical College of Virginia to become a dentist and continue the family practice. Dr. Chip earned his dental degree from MCV at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry and then completed his orthodontic residency at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. Like his father, he also accomplished a 'first.' Dr. Chip was the first African-American to finish the orthodontic residency program at the University of Louisville. Dr. Chip is well-respected in the orthodontic community as he is board certified.

On January 11, 2012, Dr. Ralph H.B. "Chip" Anderson took over the practice, and the practice's name was changed to Anderson Orthodontics, Ltd.

Away from the office, Dr. Chip enjoys football, golf, video games and volunteering with Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. and the Leukemia Society.
