What Sets Us Apart

Lifetimes of Beautifully Healthy Smiles!

You want the best for your child: a full and happy life, success in all they set out to do, and excellent health. With all of that, you also want them to have a great smile, one that’s confident and allows their personality to shine!

At Ankeny Children’s Dental, we want the same. Dr. Christopher Myers, Dr. Julie Smith, and our team are dedicated to providing every child with positive dental experiences. We will set your little one on the path to a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles!

Our Practice Philosophy

We believe dental care can be provided in such a way that children should feel comfortable with, and even enjoy, their visits to the dentist.

We believe that a dental appointment should be structured to meet the individual needs of each patient, and that our pediatric dentists will provide a welcoming and open forum for communication with parents.

We believe language and demeanor are essential components for structuring a successful dental appointment, and that the pediatric dental team and parents should work together to foster positive dental experiences for patients of all ages and backgrounds.

Why Choose Ankeny Children’s Dental?

  • Our Doctors! Dr. Chris and Dr. Julie are Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. In addition to their dental degrees, they have completed rigorous two-year advanced education and training in the specialized treatment of infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special needs. This process encompassed the latest clinical practices, as well as patient care and behavior management. Our doctors have the experience, training, skills, and, as important, the compassion necessary to provide the best dental care for your child. 
  • Our Atmosphere! As a practice that sees only children, we’ve designed our space to be kid-friendly and engaging, with a children’s play area in reception, playful décor throughout the office, and entertainment in the operatory. Each member of our team is experienced in working with children and committed to welcoming you and your family with warmth, working with you to ensure every interaction is pleasant and worry-free. This is an office that’s fun and friendly, where even the most apprehensive patient soon feels safe and is smiling and laughing with us!
  • Our Committment to Community! Our doctors live and work in the Ankeny Community, and are both in the midst of raising young children, just like many of our patient families. They can relate to the joys and challenges of children, and enjoy the moments they get to spend with your children, in addition to their own. Ankeny Children's Dental is committed to the Ankeny Community and is a proud member of the Ankeny Chamber of Commerce. You will often see us at community events throughout the year. We also volunteer anually to provide dental education to children at local community preschools. Be sure to say hello, next time you see us out and about!
