Welcome to

Iowa Dental Group

Thank you for visiting our website. For over 30 years in practice, we have never done any type of marketing. We have always built and continue to build our practice though personal referrals from our existing satisfied patients. Now that the digital age has been around for several years, we have decided in 2016 to create a website to let you learn about Iowa Dental Group, not to convince you to choose us. There will always be a cooler or fancier website to try and get your attention. That is not our intention. It's to educate you.

Iowa Dental Group was founded in 2001 when I merged my practice, after 15 years of performing dentistry, with one of the finest dentists I have ever seen, Paul A. Polydoran DDS. It was under Paul's direction that we have grown to where we offer comprehensive dentistry for the whole family, with an emphasis in cosmetic, implant and reconstructive dentistry.

We have always prided ourselves in offering the highest quality dentistry at a fair and reasonable fee. One that the patient is willing to pay with gratitude and we are willing to accept with gratitude. Our patients are satisfied when treatment is completed or we will continue to strive to meet our own high expectations.

Patients will be educated on the type of dentistry they need and will never feel pressured or receive any sales pitch to have treatment. You will always know the fee before treatment is performed. Our motto has always been "It is your mouth, your time, and your money" I'm only a referee, calling it as I see it.

You place a lot of trust in your dentist, and we will always be honest with you. This philosophy of educating our patient's has been the hallmark of why we have been successful for over 30 years without a website or any social media connected to our office.

We have over 100 years of combined experience in our office and look forward to answering any questions or concerns you may have regarding your overall oral health.

  • Initial Oral Examination

    Your first visit at our office is very important in establishing your oral health baseline. We will perform a complete oral examination which includes an oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation, an analysis of your occlusion (bite) and a thorough examination of your teeth, their supporting structures and of the oral anatomy.

  • Dental Fillings

    Traditional dental restoratives, or fillings, include gold, amalgam, porcelain, and composite. With the advent of the newest technologies in dental science, today's state-of-the-art restorative materials include ceramic and the latest composite materials. These materials are not only strong and durable, but restore the look of natural teeth and are very aesthetically pleasing.

  • The Preventive Program

    Both natural teeth and teeth with restorations survive best in an oral environment that is clean and where proper oral hygiene is maintained. Our dental hygiene program is designed to help prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored and manage periodontal disease. At the initial visit with our hygienist, oral hygiene instructions are reviewed and are reinforced at subsequent recall visits.

  • Pediatric Dental Care

    At our office we take pride in creating and maintaining beautiful and healthy smiles for our younger patients in an environment that is lighthearted and fun. With an emphasis on establishing oral health habits that last a lifetime, our primary tools are education and a comprehensive preventive care program.
