Our mission

We deliver the best pediatric dental care in a fun, friendly environment.

What Sets Us Apart?

Our team genuinely loves kids, so we work hard to create a safe, comfortable and fun experience for every one who walks through our doors! Sure, we focus on education and prevention, but we do it all in a playful space that fosters learning. It doesn’t get much better than that! Because here at Iowa Pediatric Dental Center, we don’t just care for smiles – we create them.

Quality Care

We deliver fun, not fear. By filling our offices with fun touches, like games in our waiting areas and ceiling TVs in our treatment rooms, we’ve made going to the dentist like going on a playdate – no stress, all smiles. We put attention on prevention. We “treat and teach” at every visit because we know that when kids learn healthy habits early, it leads to a lifetime of great oral health. We also make every lesson fun – because happy kids keep coming back, ensuring healthier teeth and gums. Moms and dads, would you partner with us? Let’s work together to teach your child this valuable lesson: prevention is the key to a healthy smile for life. We’re kid experts. We’re not just dental professionals. We’re kid experts! In fact, most of us are parents just like you, and we’ve dedicated our entire careers to caring for little teeth and mouths. We tailor our approach to fit each child’s personality, helping to build a strong doctor-patient relationship. And nervous little guys have nothing to fear! Our gentle dentists know how to comfort even the most apprehensive patients. So, get ready for the unbelievable! Before long, your child is going to love going to the dentist.

What People Are Saying

Our son is on the spectrum and they did a wonderful job with him. from the person who cleaned his teeth through the x-rays and all the way to the dentist everyone is very good at what they do. And they take the time to make sure that he was comfortable to me that's important.


Kid friendly! All staff was warming and welcoming and kind! My girls left in happy spirits and even excited to go back in 6 months! Definitely recommend taking your kiddos here!


Friendly, knowledgeable staff. They always treat kids with respect and keep them informed with what they are doing, and why. Minimum wait time, kid-friendly environment. Been taking kids for 10 years and they've never been nervous or afraid to go to dentist. Love Dr Peterson and team.
