Very nice facility, and great staff. Erica does a very quick and thorough job of cleaning my teeth, and gives me great advice for continued success in keeping my teeth nice. I would definitely recommend Waukee Dental for anyone looking or not happy with their current dentist.

I am so thankful for Erica and Dr. Allison. I had a very traumatic experience as a child going to the dentist and getting a lot of teeth pulled, they have completely eased all of my worries of coming back to the dentist as an adult. I was very nervous about coming back after so long and a little embarrassed. They did not make me feel judged at all and educated me. Dr. Allison had to numb my mouth today and made it so quick and easy. They are amazing!

Needed to reschedule my appointment, and of course this facility is over booked and can’t get me in for 2 months. Kind of absurd if you ask me, but hey, good for them racking in the $$$ by filling in all their slots and not making accommodations for their patients. Once again, another fine instance of quantity over quality. Great job Waukee Dental.

Update: got a call back about an hour after I left a bad review with the office telling me they saw my review. Of course they are now trying to make accommodations. No thank you, I’m totally content with my decision to leave a bad review and to switch dental offices. It made me feel a lot better leaving the one-star review after reading the other one-star reviews. I can totally see why. Here’s a great idea , how about awesome customer service from the start so bad reviews aren’t the repercussions of poor service. It’s really not rocket science.

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.
