I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Kaisha Brown at Waukee Dental! She does a wonderful job! The entire staff is amazing! Dr. Brown is so caring and explains everything she is doing. My 13 year old son had a bad experience at another dentist office and Dr. Brown fixed him and even texted two nights in a row to check on my son to be sure he was out of pain! She truly cares and all of my household will now be under her care! Thank you!!

I’m generally uncomfortable around dentists, but these people were an absolute delight, I was having my root canal and they kept making sure I was comfortable, even asking me when would be a good time to schedule for another checkup, I’ll definitely come back again

Great experience with the Waukee Dental Team! My husband and I just moved back to Iowa and post-COVID have been desperately needing to get established with a dentist. Checking in and online paperwork made the process simple. Our insurance was taken care of before even walking in the doors!

Julyn was so friendly taking my x-rays and making me feel welcome. Erica was my hygienist and she did an exceptional job getting my teeth back in tip-top shape as it’s been a few years since my usual cleaning. Dr. Allison came and gave me the once over and was also so friendly and gave great consideration to my problem spots. I’m looking forward to my husband and I calling Waukee Dental home for our future dental care 🙂 Highly recommend this professional team with exceptional service and customer care!

Dr. Brown and her staff not only provide exceptional work but also are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They make you feel comfortable and at ease when you are there and I have never felt this comfortable at a dentist office. They have state of the art equipment and explain everything clearly to you,even giving you an estimate upfront if you need work done. They go above and beyond and you will not regret choosing Waukee Dental

CREATING BRIGHT SMILES


EMERGENCY PAIN & SERVICES


Tooth pain is a certain kind of pain. It is hard to even focus, let alone work or sleep. If you or a family member is suffering from one of these ailments, give us a call right away. The Waukee Dental team will be able to get you comfortable once again.

Your Emergency Visit

The Waukee Dental Office uses an emergency messaging system after hours so Dr. Brown is always reachable. When you call, please give us as much information as possible so we can be ready to help you out when you arrive.

The information we need includes;

  • Which teeth or tooth is bothering you
  • Whether there was trauma or recent damage to the area
  • How long it has been going on

Even if you are nervous about calling us because you do not think it is too serious, we would rather talk to you and come up with a plan. Tooth pain can go from mild to serious in a hurry.
