Pediatric Dental Clinic – Ankeny & Des Moines

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 dental hygiene.

Dr. Whittemore and Dr. Percival have decades of combined experience in the field, and the dentists 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 stay knowledgeable with the most up-to-date and effective methods in dentistry. Whether your child is going to the dentist for the first time or visiting Pediatric Dentistry for the first time, we will provide quality service that will keep your child’s smile beautiful and healthy. At our offices, we aim to show children 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.
