About Us

Dr. Christine Dahl

Hello, friends! I am a happy woman. I love my work because I know that my staff and I are serving our patients in ways that are valuable, effective, and unique. If you are looking for a general and cosmetic dentist in Bettendorf, call our practice and make an appointment so we can discuss how you can have the smile of your dreams! (563) 332-1600

I am proud of the vision our team wrote together: “The Bettendorf Dental team strives toward excellence by nurturing healthy choices for all patients within a compassionate environment.” In addressing your questions, needs and concerns, WE LISTEN. Studies have shown that fear of going to the dentist is among the top five fears. Our staff is committed to easing this worry. Additionally, I have taught students at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry how to care for anxious patients.

With the intent of making our office as homelike and comfortable as possible, we have designed our reception room to look like a living room, with an adjacent coffee bar and children’s area. The treatment rooms, with their bay windows, ceiling mounted television sets, plants, and quilts are designed to seem like a den. Many patients have expressed delight with being able to watch their favorite cable programs while receiving dental care.

If we presently serve you or your family at Bettendorf Dental, we thank you! If you are new to our area or are seeking dental care, we hope you will stop by our office for a personal tour soon!

Christine L. Dahl, D.D.S.
