"we've been going there for 14 years. Her practice is unbelievable. They educate children. They put them at ease. My kids love to go. They get their teeth counted" by the big
bear. They get to watch movies while they get their teeth worked on. She has a phenomenal bedside manner and everyone she hires is the same way. I have a son with special needs who doesn't like people
around his face. But she managed to pull four teeth and fill cavities with him. She put him at ease and handled his behavior. She was just so good with him. I just recommended a friend to go there. Dr.
couldn't be better. She's on the forefront of things. They're remarkable with the children. They spend time educating them and helping them understand about oral health. She's really good. The orthodontist is excellent too.

-Julie B.

"Very professional, pleasant to deal with. I'd like them to take a little more time discussing details of treatment options or future choices.

Pediatric Dentists

Pediatric dentists can catch and treat tooth problems at a young age, making it less likely for the problems to worsen as your child gets older.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

I apologize for my delay. We encourage healthcare providers to list the insurances they accept when creating their Angie’s List profile. At this time however, many providers have not completed this section, or the information wasn't available when Angie's List created their listing.
I encourage you to visit your insurance provider's website, as many offer search tools to find local healthcare providers. You can then cross-reference these with Angie's List. We’re happy to help look up these individual providers for you, too.
I am sorry I could not answer your question directly, but I hope this information was helpful.

Please let me know if there's any other assistance or info I can provide. You can respond in line to this Q&A thread by submitting a new answer.

Hi Elizabeth,
This is Sarah B. in Member Care. I'm happy to help!
I was able to find several rated Eye Care Surgeons. For your current need though, our Snapfix specialists would also be able to do all of the dialing for you, match you up with a top rated provider and arrange to have them call you to figure out the logistics. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please fill out the form in the link below and our Snapfix Team will take it from there!
If you would like to reach out to these providers yourself, please let me know. I’d be happy to send these to you.  No matter which option you choose, I hope you’ll take the time to fill out a review when everything is done.
If you would like information on additional providers through this forum, please let us know. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at memberservices@angieslist.com. We're happy to help, Elizabeth!

Pediatric Dentistry reviews in Des Moines


Went very good. I still have the tooth. Dr.
Des Moines Pediatric Dentists Provider Name Locked
is very good with his bedside manner. He treats patients well, as if they are his only patient. His dental skills are very good. He stays up to date with the latest techniques. He will not hesitate to send a patient to a specialist if he thinks one is needed,
- Richard R.

We took my son to them 3 times and every time we had to wait 20-30 minutes to be seen by the hygienist. My son does not like going to the dentist or doctors, he gets very anxious and sitting this long in the waiting room caused him lots of anxiety. I told them this before the first visit and every subsequent visit but they did nothing to change how they handled working with him. The last visit the hygienist was mean, telling him they had other people waiting and he needed to stop acting so bad. If they had a problem with seeing my child they should have asked me to take him somewhere else instead of making the situation worst. When informed of the situation they said it would not be a problem before I made the appointments. NOT KID FRIENDLY.
- Crystal M.

The staff is extremely pleasant and kid friendly. They do a great job with my daughter and always keep me involved in the process.
- Robert L.

- bernard F.

The appointment went very smooth and quick for my daughter who was very nervous. The staff was very kind and helpful to us with the entire process.
- David W.

Well, I am not reviewing the dentists themselves, because we never got out of the waiting room. I called to make the appointment, gave them my insurance info (name of company as well as all numbers on the card...so there should have been no question about that and I was told they do accept it). I carried my kicking and crying child in, checked in and was told they don't take our insurance (and they don't know who we talked to, but sorry). Because I had gone through so much to get my child there, despite being annoyed by this, I said I would pay out of pocket and was told the cost to basically get him back, teeth cleaned, and hope that he would realize it's not that bad. We waited for 30 minutes (again with a high anxiety child), then someone else came in to tell us, sorry, what they told me when I came in was wrong, and that I would actually have to have x-rays done and pay for that as well (obviously significantly higher cost than quoted 30 minutes previously)...because they HAVE to do x-rays for a new patient. Since I knew there was no way my child was going to allow them to get x-rays, and because I was so irritated at everything that happened, we left. I thought a pediatric dentist would be able to calm my child down and show them a dentist visit wasn't that bad...instead, he had a horrible morning and in the end won and got to leave because of super poor business. So disappointed.
- Matt B.

Very impressed! The staff was very nice, the office very clean and colorful and happy with the overall service. Definitely recommend!
