Providing our neighbors the best in dental care.

At Iola Family Dental, our priority is to deliver quality care to informed patients in a comfortable and convenient setting. When you have dental problems, you need to turn to a dentist who listens and responds … an experienced doctor who knows the field and can effectively diagnose and treat your needs … a friendly dentist who counsels you on the best ways to maintain and improve your health. Our dentist meets all these criteria. Plus, you benefit from a dedicated team of trained professionals who give you the individualized attention you deserve.

We believe that informed patients are better prepared to make decisions regarding their health and well being. That is why we’ve included an extensive section on this web site covering the full array of topics associated with dentistry and dental diagnoses and treatments. We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern about your dental needs and care.
