Ankeny Family Dental Center

About Us

We do general dentistry for your family.

Here at Ankeny Family Dental Center, we practice general dentistry for the whole family. We are not a corporate dental office; we are a locally owned. You are not just a number. We recognize you have your own dental needs and goals, and we do our best to make sure you feel welcomed and comfortable through all your dental care needs.

Some patients tell us that we remind them of a “small-town” business. That’s because we get to know you, do what’s best for you, and do our best to serve you and your needs. As things get bigger and busier, we promise to stay true to those values.

We do cosmetic procedures, too.

Most of what we do is practical, traditional dentistry. However, we can also do a wide variety of cosmetic procedures as well. We can give you the smile you want using:

Dental crowns
Dental bonding
Composite (white) fillings
Clear Aligners

Ankeny Family Dental is the best! The staff is so kind and the facility is very clean. The staff is professional, great at answering questions, and great at caring for your teeth. All the dentists are great, but Dr.Palmer is my favorite and Sarah is my favorite hygienist. Very kind!

This office has a great atmosphere. Both Dr. Lensch and my hygienist, Emily, always make me feel comfortable and make sure I understand what is going on. They also give helpful advice for how to care for my teeth at home. When I did need more work done, they thoroughly explained the procedure, why it was needed, and the cost.

Ankeny Family Dental has always held my trust and admiration! The doctors are always caring and professional. In recent years, I have specifically valued and enjoyed my care from Emily, a terrific hygienist! She is extremely knowledgeable. I can tell that she has a true passion for dentistry, it’s not simply just her job. She is so observant at each appointment as she always shares new information with me to better understand my personal and unique dental make up. She also gives smart tips to make home care easier and doable! Emily has a magic ability to give an effective cleaning with little soreness! You just can’t beat care from a hygienist with passion, knowledge, skill and wonderful bedside manner and care!

My overall experience here has been amazing! As a patient for a little over a year, everyone is always kind, welcoming, and helpful. My hygienist Emily is the absolute best! She cares about me not only as a patient, but also as a person. She and the other providers I have seen are always educational and help me ensure I’m taking the best care of my teeth while keeping into consideration my values. Highly recommend!
