Why choose our Ames dental practice?
The Latest Technology
We offer the latest in advanced technology and dental materials. Recently a new patient confided in us that she had done the research and found us to be most progressive and well-equipped dental practice in this area. We have the equipment, materials and expertise to provide high tech, high quality care!
A Better ExperienceWhether you need a simple laser filling, an extraction, or a complete smile reconstruction, our team will always provide gentle care with a nonjudgmental attitude that will help you feel comfortable and safe! Many of our patients have told us that because of their bad dental experiences, they were reluctant to even make the call to set up an initial appointment. We want our patients to know that we understand and that they do not have to be embarrassed or afraid. We work very hard to provide an environment that is pleasant and unlike the cold, sterile office of the past. We like to build strong, positive, and caring relationships with our patients. We want you to know we care and that you can count on us to share information, discuss options and plan treatment with you!
A Comfortable Environment
We want you to take a look at our Comfort Care Menu. As you arrive at our office, we offer refreshments, relaxing music, movies, and a pleasant environment. We will provide items like a warm blanket, pillow, a massage dental chair, or aroma therapy in our operatories. We love to get to know you and do whatever we can to make sure you are relaxed and comfortable.

Hear What Our Patients Are Saying
Dr. Amie and her team are phenomenal! From the minute you walk in the door you feel relaxed and welcomed - they offer a variety of beverages and snacks and complimentary "spa" services (paraffin hand dip, comfy blankets, movies, etc.) during your treatment. Dr. Amie took time with me to explain my proposed treatment and really made me feel comfortable making an educated decision. I left feeling pampered and that my teeth were in good hands. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to have a great dental experience." - Kelly M ...Read More Testimonials
