Iowa Dental Group helps supply full-service dental services for children and patients with special needs. Our passion is both educating children and parents about effective approaches to take care of their teeth and gums to ensure the optimum dental health and prevent the onset of dental diseases. Good dental health starts with appropriate nutrition, regular flossing and brushing, the ideal quantity of fluoride, and timely examinations.

Our office serves babies, children, adolescents and children with special healthcare needs in Des Moines, IA. We concentrate heavily on preventive services to help every child develop a healthy smile they can be proud of for years to come. Contact us today at  (515) 277-6358.

Pediatric Dentistry
What is a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentists dedicate themselves to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child's teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.

Your First Visit

The ideal time for your child’s first visit to our office is around the time of his or her first birthday. The first visit allows us to evaluate the development of your child’s mouth, review how to care for these new teeth and help stop or prevent any harmful habits. Prevention and education in dental matters are two of the best treatments we can offer. We believe the best dentistry starts at home!

Our staff is highly experienced, and we work with children of all ages. We strive to make every visit to our office healthful, educational and enjoyable for both the child and the parent.

We recognize that many adults have had or still have ‘dental anxieties’ and that sometimes those anxieties may be inadvertently or subconsciously conveyed to your child. To avoid this, we’ve outlined some pre-planning tips you as the parent can do to help both you and your child have a great experience at our office.

Very young children don’t have a realistic sense of time. Wait until the day of the appointment to inform your child. Tell them you’re going to visit a tooth doctor who will count their teeth and teach them how to take care of their teeth.

We have plenty of toys, books, and videos in the office – most kids don’t want to leave!

Emphasize the adventure of visiting a new place, meeting new people and being the center of attention. Do NOT use words like ‘drill,’ ‘hurt’ or ‘needle’ – they are inappropriate and will only create anxiety in your child.

We examine infants and toddlers while sitting on their parent’s lap in the dental chair.

If your child has a particular toy or a blanket they rely on when they are anxious, please bring it to the appointment. We check teeth of dolls and stuffed animals, too, so if your child has a favorite one, please bring it!

Most of our treatment spaces are in open rooms that make it easy for parents to be present during the examination, allowing them to interact with the doctors and staff. We explain everything in an age-appropriate manner, so your child learns while having fun.

What Happens during the Exam?

At every exam we will review your child’s health history; take any necessary x-rays; clean your child’s teeth (if any are present); conduct a thorough clinical examination of your child’s mouth, palate, gums, tongue and teeth; and teach them about healthy food choices and how to brush and floss their teeth. Prevention in dentistry is the best treatment we can offer!

After every examination, we provide parents with essential information about your child’s dental health:
  • An assessment of your child's risk for decay;
  • An evaluation of your child's soft tissues and gums;
  • An assessment of your child's bite and dental growth; and
  • An assessment of your child's oral health as it pertains to his or her overall health including suggestions about nutrition.

Our Mission

We have always prided ourselves in offering the highest quality dentistry at a fair and reasonable fee.

I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Margeas for a small cosmetic issue with a tooth from a recommendation from my current Dentist. I have heard from many people (including my own dentist) that he was the best in cosmetic dentistry any where in the mid-west. My consultation was this morning. He was totally upfront about what he thinks the best route is for me and my teeth. I felt totally comfortable with his recommendations and confident in his abilities. I've been to an other dentist about this same issue years ago and it didn't feel right. Now that I've had the consultation with Dr. Margeas, I'm excited to finally move forward with fixing it. Every staff member was very welcoming and pleasant. It was a really nice place to be with a great energy there. If I didn't like my normal dentist so much, I'd absolutely become a regular there! Maybe I'll pop in for an extra cleaning or something. I'm happy to have found Dr. Margeas and his staff to help me correct my cosmetic issue. I highly recommend this business!read more

From the moment I arrived to the moment I left I felt me and my teeth were in great hands. The whole team is so kind, and my dentist was fantastic. I originally went in wanting veneers, keep in mind I am overly critical of my smile and teeth, and it was all I knew. My dentist educated me that he did not think veneers were the best choice for me, and gave me a much better option which costed about 6 times less than what veneers would have. He is a great dentist because he won't just do what makes him the most money, he does what is best for the patient. I just got done with my appointment and I could not be more overjoyed with my results. Thank you Iowa Dental Group team!:)read more
