The Iowa Dental Arts Philosophy
At Iowa Dental Arts, our first goal is to prevent discomfort and disease before they start. Our
holistic dentistry practice serves our patients’ needs through a combination of preventative care
and dental procedures that use the least invasive methods available today that do not interfere
with your body’s natural healing process. Our caring team works with compassion to uncover
potential problems and address them quickly through routine changes at home when possible.
When office procedures are necessary, we provide the top quality care through minimally
invasive procedures that are intended to prevent discomfort and speed recovery.
