Our Patients

“I frequently receive compliments on my teeth and smile. I owe it to the great people of Fort Des Moines Dental. I have been a patient of Fort Des Moines Dental all of my life. I’m 57 years old and currently on my third dentist. The dentist and staff have always been kind, courteous, friendly and professional. Thank you for many years of wonderful dental care.”

“I love my smile! The flexible trays that Dr. Patrick made for me made my teeth shine. It was so easy and quick, I’m just upset I didn’t start going to Fort Des Moines Dental five years ago.”
