The creation of Renovasmiles began when Doctors Joshua and Eliana Anderson first met in Dental School in Peru. They began dating in 2005 and married in 2007. That same year, Dr. J. Anderson moved to Connecticut because he was accepted and enrolled in The Advanced Education in General Dentistry program at UConn School of Dental Medicine. Dr. E. Anderson also enrolled a year later. In 2008, Dr. Anderson became a fellow in AEGD UConn School of Dental Medicine and a year after, Dr. Eliana became a fellow as well. In 2010, Dr. J. Anderson became a Clinical Instructor in UConn. That same year, their first child Nicholas was born.
As 2011 approached, the Andersons decided to move to Virginia where Joshua would go on to work in private practice and Eliana worked at a Community Health Center.
In 2014, RenovaSmiles opened its first doors in Falls Church. The name RenovaSmiles comes from The Anderson’s love of dentistry and passion for renovating smiles within their community. In March that same year, they had their second child, Ian. With growing success in Falls Church, they opened their second location in Woodbridge, VA. This milestone was marked by the birth of their first daughter, Ivana, in 2016. In 2019, they expanded their practice and family again. A third location was opened in Manassas followed by the birth of their fourth child, Aria. In 2020, the fourth location was opened in Arlington. Most recently, they have expanded the RenovaSmiles network with a new office in Franconia, VA in order to serve this community as well.
When the Andersons are not in RenovaSmiles with their patients, they enjoy spending time together with their children. They prioritize their family time and always make sure they are there for their kids; whether it is helping them with homework or taking them to extra curricular activities such as taekwondo, soccer and swimming.The Anderson family loves to bond over delicious meals cooked by Joshua and desserts baked by Eliana. They currently reside in Lorton.
