Dr. Reed is great with kids! Dr. Reed completed an optional 6 week rotation in pediatric dentistry at St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids while at the University of Iowa. At Peosta Dental, we offer a comprehensive range of pediatric services, including: fillings, stainless steel crowns, pulp therapies, regular checkups, sealants, and Invisalign orthodontics. For those anxious children, we do offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Following the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Reed would like to see your child before their first birthday. If you are looking for a dental home for your kids, Peosta Dental is the place! Check out our “What to expect” page to see what your child’s first appointment will be like.
Peosta Dental firmly believes that a foot of preventive dental care will take you a mile towards a healthy mouth. Regular checkups will help you maintain your smile and Dr. Reed’s philosophy is that you deserve the best. Peosta Dental works hard to maintain a small town atmosphere where you have plenty of time to discuss any and all questions you have with Dr. Reed. A thorough exam and an excellent cleaning will leave you refreshed and assured that you are in good hands at Peosta Dental.
At Peosta Dental, we believe that staying on the cutting edge of dentistry is important. All of our patient charts, photos, and x-rays are digital. Digital dental x-rays have 1/10th the radiation of a traditional dental x-ray. At each new patient appointment, we will take a series of digital photos so that you can see your teeth just like Dr. Reed does. We believe this is important because you should be able to see what is going on in your mouth. This also helps our patients understand their diagnosis and better understand what needs to be done to fix it.
Peosta Dental provides comprehensive TMJ evaluations for pain of the jaw joint.
Comprehensive bruxism evaluations and night guard fabrication.
If you are a regular patient at Peosta Dental, we provide free custom athlete (Red/Black or Green/Yellow) mouth guards with no obligation.
Brenda, our hygienist, will guide you through a comprehensive examination and cleaning of your teeth and gum tissues. Whether you need a deeper cleaning, maintenance services, or a traditional dental cleaning, we will make sure you get the treatment you need. All the new research says the health of your gum tissue affects the overall health of your body. At Peosta Dental, we will make sure that you get the best treatment for your mouth and your overall health.
Dr. Reed wants your every experience in the office to be comfortable. Whether it is nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for the anxious (normal) patient or some longer lasting anesthetic, Dr. Reed will do his best to make every experience a positive one.
Comprehensive endodontic services with rotary instruments available.
Porcelain veneers are a fast way to get the smile you have always wanted. Whether you have some minor crowding or minor spacing, veneers can give you the ideal smile you want and deserve. By reducing the front surface of a tooth by about ½ of a millimeter in most cases, we can create the room to have a lab technician make a beautiful restoration that overlays the front surface of your natural tooth. This process allows us to make over your smile into the look you have always wanted.
Dr. Reed believes everyone should have the white teeth they deserve. So here is something to smile about: Whitening for Life. Become a regular patient of Peosta Dental, purchase upper and lower custom whitening trays for $78 total, and you will receive all the whitening gel you need for FREE. When you are ready to touch up in 6 months or a year, keep your regularly scheduled checkup appointment, and the whitening gel is free! Free whitening gel for life!
Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces. You can have the straight teeth and smile you have always wanted. Invisalign orthodontic treatment allows us to move your teeth to the proper position so you have a smile that you can be proud of. Almost every patient is a candidate for Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gently move the teeth into a healthy, stable position. While Invisalign creates beautiful smiles, it also puts the teeth in position that is better for your gum tissue, and easier for you to clean. This gives your teeth the best possible long term prognosis for your entire lifetime. Schedule a FREE consult with Dr. Reed today!
Composite resin can also be used as an alternative for a porcelain veneer. Direct composite veneers can be a great fix for small chips and imperfections on front teeth.
Composite restorations or fillings are the conservative, tooth colored alternative to the old silver amalgam restorations. Nearly all of the filling type restorations we place fall into this category. This material can also be used as an alternative for a porcelain veneer. Direct composite veneers can be a great fix for small chips and imperfections on front teeth.
Porcelain and gold restorations available. Custom shade matching available at no charge.
Whether you are looking for a “Metal-Free” partial or dentures that fit, we are the place for your removable dentistry. We do not skip steps. Each removable prosthesis takes a minimum of 4 steps, and we do each of them to ensure the proper fit. Dr. Reed believes in making it right, the first time. You deserve a denture that fits!
