THE PRACTICE

Our Office

We have been caring for the hard-working people of Iowa for three generations. We are located in Northeast Iowa, with two office locations: Oelwein, IA and a satellite office in Strawberry Point, IA.

Our focus is dental care for the whole family. You will feel at home in our warm and comforting atmosphere. A classic office with modern technology provides our patients with everything needed for a great experience.

 

Our doctors and hygienists have decades of experience in a wide variety of specialties. Whether you are visiting for a routine cleaning or a complex procedure, we will take great care of you from the moment you walk in the door.
