Meet Dr. Stephanie Turner

I am happy to offer quality dental care to patients from diverse backgrounds, some of whom have experienced dental neglect or have dental-related anxiety. With each patient, I strive to provide a positive experience and help set them up for success for years to come.

Education and Experience

Dr. Turner graduated from Drake University in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biochemistry and Cell and Molecular Biology.  She went on to the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2012.
Following dental school, Dr. Turner practiced in Des Moines, IA, Charleston, SC, Dallas, TX, and Omaha, NE, before returning home to the Des Moines metro several years ago. This experience, treating pediatric and adult populations in public health and private practice, drove home the importance of oral health and the need for early intervention.
Many adult patients, who were underserved as children, deal with lasting dental issues that could have been addressed and corrected when younger. This reality motivates Dr. Turner to help the community’s youth, establishing good dental health and teaching patients how to maintain a healthy smile as adults.

Professional Affiliations, Activities, and Continuing Education

Dr. Turner is a member of the American Dental Association and currently serves as President-Elect of the Des Moines District Dental Society.
Through participation in continuing education offered by these organizations, Dr. Turner ensures she is providing her patients with evidence-based treatment options, as well as staying current with ever-evolving dental technologies.

Beyond the Practice

While Dr. Turner loves being a dentist, she is even more passionate about being a mom.  She and her husband, Reid, have three boys (Blake, Bennett, and Bradley) which keep her plenty busy outside of the office.
In her free time, Dr. Turner enjoys golfing, cooking, baking bread and reading. Dr. Turner attends Northpoint Church in Johnston, where she volunteers in the nursery and on the refugee welcome team.
