Born and raised in Des Moines. Love my dogs, the outdoors, The Cubs and Iowa Hawkeyes. Been a hygienist almost 9 years. Went to DMACC for hygiene and Simpson College for under grad.
When asked why did you become a dental hygienist her response was:
“I was getting an implant done and my doc at the time asked why I had never thought about being a hygienist because I’m so OCD. Lol. Then went home and my mom had sent me an article about dental hygiene. Then the next morning I got an email about dental hygiene from dmacc. I took that as a sign that I was meant to be a hygienist. I went back to school at 31 to become one. Best choice I have made in my life.”
Ballpark Heights Dental. Our team of skilled clinicians follow a comprehensive approach to ensure that every new and returning patient is given personalized care and quality dental services. We are interested in you not just your teeth and want to ensure each trip to the dentist is as comfortable and stress free as possible. We offer all the treatments that you would expect from a family dentist plus we have a particular interest in the following:
Advanced technology has changed the way people look at dentures. They are no longer an uncomfortable, bulky dental application with a fake set of teeth.
There are multiple choices available to match your needs. Apart from improving your smile, dentures also help you perform basic functions like chewing and biting which would be difficult with missing teeth. Missing teeth can negatively impact your jaw and gums which dentures can help to prevent.
The Invisalign® system is a clear alternative to traditional metal braces and can be used on teenagers and adults alike to create the smile they desire.
The aligners can be taken off, brushed, and cleaned. They can be worn all the time except when eating, brushing, and flossing.
Invisalign® is great for treating crowding, spacing, and overlapping teeth, and gives the patient a whiter, brighter smile.
There is now an easier way to treat Sleep Apnea and it does not involve machinery. We can create a dental appliance that positions the jaw so the patient’s airway stays open while they sleep.
When Sleep Apnea occurs, the tongue usually falls back and constricts the airway. The dental appliance positions the jaw in a way that prevents this and keeps the airway clear. Dental appliances are becoming more popular for treating Sleep Apnea because they are not bulky and are comfortable to wear.
Just got my teeth cleaned. The hygienist was amazing. Answering all of my questions and going the extra mile. The dentist was very good. I was in the chair and out without any problems.
Extremely thorough examination by Dr McPherson. The entire staff is very professional and accommodating to their patients. I highly recommend this practice.
They do great work and care about you as a person.
They also make sure that you are comfortable and educated on what’s going on with your teeth.
Made me feel so comfortable from the minute I walked in through to the time I left. Totally trust these guys to be caring and compassionate with my needs. They treat me like family. Highly recommend!
