DENTAL ASSOCIATES - WHAT OUR PATIENTS THINK

google reviews Des Moines Dental Associates
Beth Wright

I’ve been going to Dr. Gleichman at Dental Associates for over 15 years now. He and the rest of the staff are very knowledgeable and up to date on new techniques. They are very good at explaining everything in terms anyone can understand they are all very polite and caring. I’d recommend highly.

Maggie

I've been going to Dental Associates for decades. Love my hygienist. She is so skilled at cleaning my teeth. My dentist is thorough and friendly. Great place to go to take care of your dental needs.

Bud Price

We moved to Des Moines last year and our son recommended Dr. Quick. We are so glad he did? At 73, I needed extensive work. The procedures were painless, and the costs more than fair. We love the staff, especially Dr. Quick 😁

Michelle Huenecke

Always a great experience, I have been going here for 10 plus years and my experience with the whole staff has always been extraordinary! Great place for your dental health.

David James

Nikki did a 10 out of 10 as always. I make a point to share with her that she is good at what she does and makes me feel comfortable as a patient.

Beth Damm

I look forward to my visits at Dental Associates. Friendly, professional and personal service. They take all of the extra precautions to keep their staff and patients safe and well.

David McVicker

I called for an emergency appt this morning due to a broken tooth and was gotten in promptly. Professional and friendly dental care as always. I really like this team. I would add that masks are required and the patient is responsible for bringing their own which is how it should be in my opinion.

Judy Prunty

I had a very good checkup with Dr. Quick. His hygienist was very good and gentle. Dr. Quick was very thorough as always. Great dentist!

    During an oral cancer screening, with gloved hands, your dentist looks over the inside of your mouth checking for red or white patches and sores. They will also feel the tissues in your mouth to check for lumps or other abnormalities. They may also examine your throat and neck for lumps.

    People with a high risk of oral cancer may benefit from oral cancer screenings.Factors that may increase the risk of oral cancer are not limited to:

    • Tobacco use of any kind, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco, and snuff, among others.
    • Heavy Alcohol Use
    • Previous Oral Cancer diagnosis or family history 
    • History of significant sun exposure, which increases the risk of lip cancer
