Our Staff

Our goal is to make all of our patients feel right at home! We put your needs first to achieve efficient and comprehensive treatment. Our staff is trained and skilled, and we strive to provide energetic and fun-loving service to each patient. Each chair-side assistant, sterilization technician and laboratory technician is a registered dental assistant. Our team has years of experience in treating patients with the highest level of care.

We strive to stay abreast of the very latest in dentistry by regularly attending continuing education courses and seminars throughout the year. The staff also attends the Iowa Dental Association meeting to stay updated on new products and techniques. Also, our staff chooses to volunteer at the Iowa Mission of Mercy, a 2-day event that provides free dental care to underprivileged Iowans.
