"Iowa Orthodontic Solutions has been a great experience for a family with a first time braces child. Easy to make appointments, and their consultation and finance gal is amazing!!! She truly helps you understand everything. I love the at home scan program, and I’ve not seen that offered before! And they accept our insurance which gave us a nice discount. As a bonus, the Dippin dots and neon shirts for the patient are a fan favorite with our daughter as well. I also love the little marketing events they’ve done in Ankeny, all of our kiddos enjoyed the Kona Ice and games this past summer. Businesses that support their community are awesome in my book!"
