"Creating and caring for beautiful little smiles since 1975"

Ankeny & Des Moines Pediatric Dental Clinic

Our main priorities at Pediatric Dentistry are your child and his/her oral health. Your child already has a beautiful smile, but we want to do everything we can to keep it that way. Our caring staff and qualified pediatric dentists offer a fun, nurturing, and safe environment for your child to learn about oral health.

Dr. Barsetti and Dr. Whittemore have over 50 years of combined experience in the field, and they both actively participate in national networks for dental professionals, including the American Dental Association. Our staff of caring dental assistants are all certified and registered with the Iowa Board of Dental Examiners. We maintain a vast network in the industry in order to keep up with the most up-to-date and effective methods in dentistry. Whether your child is going to the dentist for the first time or if they visit our office for the first time, we will provide quality service that will keep your child healthy and smiling. At our offices, we aim to expose children to a positive dental visit early on and teach them about oral health so that they can have happy, healthy mouths for the rest of their lives.
