West Des Moines, Iowa’s Favorite Orthodontist

Michelle W   “Dr. Stork and his staff are so knowledgeable and the most friendly, positive, fun group of people I’ve ever encountered at a medical place. They truly care about their patients and make every experience wonderful! They also get you in and out and stay on time, which is nice if you are a busy mom like me!”

“From the first phone call to make my son’s appointment I could tell this was an office who cares about their patients. The receptionist I spoke sounded like she loved her job and really wanted to make sure I knew how important we were. I never felt like she was rushing to get me off the phone, in fact she sounded so happy that she made me smile just talking to her.

Upon entering your office on Westtown Parkway, I was greeted by someone who actually rose and came around the front desk to greet me and my son. She made Gavin feel extra special by shaking his hand and speaking directly to him.

Dr. Stork and his staff are excellent at explaining what they plan to do, giving us the super star treatment in customer service and accommodating our busy schedules. I am still amazed and brag to everyone how wonderful this office is. Top rate staff, friendly doctor who was great with my son and just an inviting atmosphere. Thank you!!”

We are looking forward to future visits due to the comfortable, stress-free and upbeat environment with Dr. Stork and his staff. The continued correspondence from Dr. Stork show his appreciation for our business and are making us feel life family. In the two weeks our son has had braces, he has received notes of encouragement from Dr. Stork’s office.

While we have not yet received the braces, Dr Stork and his staff are always kind, informative and accommodating. Even when my schedule is crazy and I need to cancel at the last minute.

Amber G   “The best experience! They are super nice and helpful! My boys and I were very pleased with the helpfulness of the staff and Dr. Stork. Dr. Stork took the time to thoroughly evaluate the boys and helped us to decide the best options for each. The best part (for the boys) was that they got to choose from traditional metal with colored bands (which one chose), clear braces or the invisalign (which is what the other chose)…. All of them were priced very reasonable as well. I can only say good things about Dr. Stork and his team. Great customer service is an understatement!”
Amber G.5-star

Justin E   “I recently visited Stork Orthodontics for a replacement retainer. My braces were done by another Orthodontist from my old home town and my expectations were set accordingly. I have to say that Dr Stork and his staff exceeded those expectations ten fold! On my first visit I was greeted face to face with a hand shake, a smile, and most importantly, respect and understanding that my teeth are very important to me. Each member of the staff was prompt, professional and very charming. They gave me the feeling that they enjoyed what they did and truly wanted to help. Within one week of my initial exam I returned for my replacement retainer. It fit perfectly and required no adjustments. If you’re considering Orthodontic treatment for you or your family, you owe it to yourself to visit Stork Orthodontics first.”
Justin E.5-star
Jay C   “Now both of my kids, Carson and Kierlyn, are patients of Stork Orthodontics.

Brandy V   “My son was and has always been scared of the dentist. It was so bad, I got a tummy ache when it was time to go. Then Jacob started getting an under bite and the dentist would say things like “breaking his jaw”, and “braces”. Of course my son got even more scared and panicked. Then we went to see Dr. Stork and he really liked him. He told him straight and was so great with him. They (all) made him feel safe and comfortable. I’m no longer sick about taking him, and he has no problem going. As for my side, I was worried I couldn’t afford getting his teeth fixed since our insurance doesn’t cover orthodontist work. But the ladies in the office have been so helpful in finding out a way to make it affordable and in my means. I think that Dr. Stork and his staff are amazing & I appreciate all that they do!”
Brandy V.5-star
Terri P   “My experience with Stork Orthodontics this far have been extremely pleasant. I feel like your team has remarkable customer service! I really do feel like I am a valued customer, rather than just being told that I am.

I appreciate their efforts and look forward to having my orthodontic work done in this office!”
Terri P.5-star

Julie R   “We moved here from Idaho and needed an orthodontist that would continue the current care of our daughter. We found Stork Orthodontist on the internet and liked how the office staff and Dr. Stork treated the whole situation. We now have both of our daughters under Dr. Stork’s care and we couldn’t be happier with how things are going. They are careful and kind. They are always friendly and helpful. They worked hard at getting the best financial situation for our transfer and we appreciate all they have done.”

Dr. Stork and his staff really know how to make my daughter and son feel right at home. Each procedure ever done at the office has always been explained throughly to each and every one of us. Dr. Stork is fun loving and full of energy.

Tonette S   “Great Doctor with a great staff. Always accommodating and helpful whether it’s insurance questions or a bracket that’s come loose. All of them are friendly and very professional. I’m extremely pleased watching them explain what and why they are making orthodontic changes with my sons braces before they actually do it. Educating him is a huge benefit to help him understand the process because braces are a big investment. Customer service along with great care are two of the main reasons why we chose Dr. Stork. It’s out of our way but worth the extra drive for being treated like family. Thank you!”

Gracias doctor y staff.”

Jodi B  

“At a time when there were no orthodontists in the Des Moines area that accepted our insurance, Stork Orthodontics opened up at the perfect time. We were impressed from the beginning as Jenna and Dr. Stork were a perfect team, explained everything in details, and answered any questions we had. They did a lot of work to get my daughter approved for braces and for that, I can’t thank them enough. A year later you can see the improvement in her appearance even with the braces still on. Everytime we walk into the office, they know who we are, and all of the staff are smiling. It is a great office with great people. I highly recommend Dr. Stork to anyone needing braces.”

JODI B.5-star

Racheal N   “Dr. Stork and his staff are wonderful! They take extra time to be more gentle with my overly sensitive teeth. They are also fantastic with making sure I am never exposed to Latex (highly allergic to it). Dr. Stork even took time to understand other health concerns that affect my treatment in order to make this the best experience possible! If I had questions or concerns Dr. Stork made it a priority to call me and speak with me immediately. He is very knowledgeable and also requires his staff to be just as knowledgeable! Keep up the awesome work and see you in a few years when our children need braces!”
Racheal N.5-star
Christina S   “We were referred to Dr. Stork by our pediatric dentist and were pleased with the initial consultation.

Lori N   “When I first heard Alyssa needed braces I became scared and stressed for her. When we first arrived at Dr. Storks office that all went away. Lori greeted us and made sure we were comfortable until Jenna came and got us. Once Jenna covered all the questions I had and and made us feel very comfortable and most important Alyssa was happy. Dr. Stork came in and he immediately made Alyssa smile and laugh. She LOVES coming to Dr. Stork’s office.”

Skyla M   “We were lucky enough to hear about Stork Orthodontics from a friend in January 2013. We scheduled an initial consultation with them…thinking that we would shop around and compare. After meeting with the staff, we were so utterly blown away by their professionalism and caring nature, we committed to orthodontic care for two of our daughters on the spot. I have never seen such exceptional customer service. Dr Stork and his amazing wife, Jenna even attended our daughters school play….totally above and beyond! Our youngest daughter loves knowing that some pretty fun video games await her to pass the time while her big sisters are getting their braces adjusted. Dr. Stork keeps the kids humble by staying after work to make certain that he always maintains the high scores on those games… a glimpse into his fun nature! We will forever sing the praises of this dedicated trio of dental professionals. We adore Lori at the front desk, too. she makes every visit feel like a trip to see a dear friend. We sleep well at night knowing that our daughters teeth are moving in the right direction. Thank you Stork Orthodontics!”

I love my appointments with Dr. Stork and look forward to them every 8 weeks. I feel like I am going to see a group of friends. He takes time to listen to me and help me out whenever I need help.

“From the moment you walk in, you are treated with the utmost courtesy, kindness and professionalism. Upon entering, Dena will greet you with a warm smile and welcome. From there, Jenna, Lori and Dr. Stork take care of all your orthodontic needs.

I am an adult patient who wore braces as a kid, but apparently did not wear my retainers long enough, as my teeth have shifted over the years. I had considered doing something about this for the last couple of years, but was always hesitant. After researching several options such as Invisalign, 6-Month Smiles and adult braces, I
contacted several providers in town to discuss these options.

Having not really been satisfied, I almost put this decision on the back-burner again until I ran across Stork Orthodontics’ web site – and decided to give them a call. During my initial, complementary visit, I was impressed and started thinking to myself, “wait until you see the price.” As it turns out, the pricing is very reasonable.

Even with all the positives, I still had questions and concerns. Over the next couple of weeks, Jenna took the time to answer all of these questions and concerns. She really was patient, encouraging and seemed genuinely concerned with me making the right decision.

I finally decided to go ahead with Invisalign treatment and so far things have been great. The day after receiving my first trays, Lori called me to make sure everything was going well – what a nice personal touch.

As an aside, Jenna and Dr. Stork went out of their way to help me provide the data from the CT scan they had taken to my ENT clinic.

If you are in need of orthodontic care, I highly recommend Stork Orthodontics for their expertise, professionalism and genuine care for their patients.”
Tony S.5-star

    “Dr. Stork is a very hard working orthodontist who makes going to the orthodontist a comfortable and relaxing experience and always leave you smiling. From my experience, he is very easy to get along with and has had many people compliment me on my smile. Dr. Stork gives you the motivation and tools to keep a clean and wellkept smile for a truly life changing outcome.”
    “Dr. Stork and his staff were absolutely fantastic with my daughter’s entire braces experience from start to finish. The entire staff was kind, courteous and always willing to accommodate. My daughter felt very comfortable throughout and always left her appointments with a great smile. I would recommend Dr. Stork to anyone, especially children.”
John M.5-star

Stacey O.5-star
    “Two weeks ago I had both jaws surgery and a few days later I got a wonderful surprise when Lori showed up at my door with a basket full of food appropriate for my diet, and tons of goodies to nurish me back to health. Words can’t express the gratitude I have for the entire Stork team for putting together this amazing basket and helping me heal. Not to mention Dr. Stork answering my calls on a Sunday and calling Iowa City Hospital helping me get pain relief. You guys are truly an amazing team and this journey would have not been easy without you all by my side. I am forever grateful and forever will consider you guys as a part of my family. Thank you all so much and may God reward your good deeds.”

Michelle W.5-star

“We’ve had such a pleasant experience at Stork Orthodontics. Prior to going, my son would hide his smile a lot. The first day he got braces put on, he was smiling ear to ear as he got his picture taken with Dr. Stork. The staff there are incredibly welcoming and sweet. The receptionist greeted us by actually stepping from behind the desk to shake our hands and to offer a drink. And Dr. Stork himself is so kind, and my son says he’s a cool doctor.

I’ve already told people that this place is by far the most *professional* place we’ve had the pleasure of doing business with; although they don’t make it feel like it’s “business” at all.”
Robin S.5-star

    “I really didn’t have high expectations when we were referred by our dentist to Stork for my daughters consultation. It was immediately clear that something was different here. From the way we were greeted to the making sure that my daughter was comfortable was amazing. One of the really cool things was that even though she is 12 she spoken to with respect and like she was an adult. I’m in a customer focused business and after my experience I have used it with my employees to show what real service looks like. I have told all my friends and family about how incredible our experience has been. My daughter LOVES coming to your office and it has made a painful and sometimes awkward period in her life one that she can look back on with great joy. We appreciate all you have done for her and look forward to the rest of our journey!”

Courtney K.5-star
    “When my daughter was contemplating braces, our dentist referred us to an orthodontist 5 minutes from our house. A friend highly recommended Stork and said it would be well worth the 20-25 minute drive to get there. We went in for the initial consultation and that was all it took… we were hooked! The entire staff is so extremely friendly and cheerful! This made the entire experience enjoyable. I can truly say that I don’t believe I have ever had such exceptional customer service as we do at Stork.”

    “The experience at Stork Orthodontist has been “OUTSTANDING”! Our first trip to Stork Orthodontist, we experienced a very professional and clean environment. The one on one consultation gave us peace of mind with what to expect financially and with future treatments. When we arrived for the placement of braces; again a very welcomed environment with peace of mind on what to expect. “Thank you Stork Orthodontist; your professionalism and personable impressions have made our experience with braces better than we ever could have expected. Making us feel like we are part of your “family” has made us “KNOW” we have chosen the right Orthodontist; Dr. Stork!”

felicia B.5-star
    “I had a great experiance at Stork Orthodontics. They were always kind and understanding of everyones situation. The great service starts with their lobby, they have coffee and waters and it is just a welcoming environment. They also have a great brushing station that everyone should take advantage of, as well as their gaming area. Besides the fun things that they have they also have great service. They really help you achieve your goal of having a great smile. They get it right, and they get it right in one try. For example i was estimated to have my braces on for two years, but it only took one and a half. Over all I had a great time and fantastic experience.”
Annie N.5-star

Dawn W.5-star
    “I recently took my daughter to get braces. We were both nervous. The staff assured us both that it would be no big deal. I felt comfortable enough with the staff to leave for a short time while they were putting her braces on. (something I never do) She was fine and excited that it really was, no big deal! She looks great and is doing great. Thank you Dr. Stork to you and your Great Staff!”
Dee Dee W.5-star

“Great experience with our son, Dylan! We were greeted and made to feel so welcomed at our consultation as soon as we walked in the door.

Dylan was very nervous coming to the consultation, but your staff made us feel right at home! Dylan just had his braces put on and can’t wait for his next appointment to see Dr. Stork and the staff. You all have such a caring and friendly way of making him feel so important!! All of our questions were answered, we didn’t feel rushed and the atmosphere was so uplifting in the office. Love, love, love this office and will definitely recommend Dr. Stork to everyone!!!”
Kristina C.5-star

    “My son Chase was just in this morning and received his Invisaline braces. Not only does he look great, he feels great. As his mom, I was impressed with his thorough knowledge of how to wear and care for his invisaline trays. Thank you for giving him the knowledge he needed, and my not having to go home and read a book on what he needs to do. Thank you for your smiles as well, literally! You create a positive,joyful and fun atmosphere, thank you! I love the pictures and am so appreciative that you shared them. Chase is excited about his start towards his new smile!!!”

Monja G.5-star
    “Stork orthodontic has an amazing staff and is very friendly. Before I got my braces I thought going to the orthodontist would be boaring and dreadful but with the amazing staff at stork I look forward to going in for a visit and I can’t wait to see my straight teeth in the end.”
Hailee J.5-star
    “Had my first appointment at Stork Orthodintics and I AM IN LOVE! Never thought I could love an office as much as I do. I haven’t met a staff so happy and caring than at Storks. I have heard others say how friendly they are and I can certainly say that it is true! Thank you so much for being such an amazing team!”
Beatriz M.5-star
    “I was not able to close my back teeth, therefore I was chewing with my two front teeth. Obviously this called for a limited menu. After reviewing several options, including the invisible braces, my regular dentist referred me to Dr. Stork. Within six month after he put the braces on, I could close my back teeth and chew. Most people don’t rank a visit to the dentist or orthodontist in their top ten list of things they like to do, but Dr. Stork, Jenna and all the others in the office make it a positive experience.”
pat R.5-star
    “Everybody in the office was so friendly. They all had smiles on and were genuinely happy to be there. It instantly enhanced my mood and I would recommend these guys to anybody!”

You are made to feel special and that your success truly matters. I know that in the end, she will have the beautiful smile she was promised! We couldn’t be happier with our choice in Stork Orthodontics.”

They were able to lay out all of the options available for tweaking my smile and explained the pros and cons of each. I genuinely felt like they had my best interest in mind and left the office feeling better than when I came in. Customer centric, modern, friendly, professional and organized are all words I would use to describe everyone working there! I recommend going here if you care about your teeth and want a quality consultation!”

Mike H.5-star
    “Where do I start? From the moment we walked in the door it was very apparent that this wasn’t a typical dental office. When we arrived, we were greeted by the world’s most cheerful receptionist who jumped up to shake our hands and welcome us, offering us drinks and a brief introduction. It was Halloween and everyone in the office was in costume, super cute and very fun! After a short wait, we were introduced to Jenna, who gave us a tour of the facility. Every room was brightly painted; I especially loved the inspirational artwork. The office is very modern and there is some sort of new technology around every corner. After the tour, we followed Jenna into the consultation room where she made small talk and joked with us while gathering our dental history and information. She even gave my son a welcome gift and a Thank You card for me! Soon, we were joined by Dr. Stork, who was very congenial and professional. My son needed braces, but I was concerned about starting the process since we were relocating in a few weeks. Instead of taking our business and putting braces on with the possibility of my son having the braces taken right back off and replaced by a new Orthodontists in a different state; he suggested that we wait and start the process in our new home. Jenna helped us find phone numbers for orthodontists close to our new house, and even followed up with an electronic list of contacts the next morning (in case we lost the hand written sheet in the move). The staff at Stork Orthodontists definitely go above and beyond to make sure that your experience is enjoyable from start to finish. I feel like it is very refreshing to have found a provider that truely treats you as they would expect another facility to treat a member of their own family. I am so sad that we are moving and unable to use their services, but I will definitely recommend Stork Orthodontists to my friends and family should they need orthodontal services in the future.”
Tara O.5-star
    “I and my family have been very impressed with your office and staff! You all have a cheery attitude and atmosphere, and communication has been clear and supportive. Our daughter Joyous wanted to get braces through your office as soon as she met you ( and that’s saying a lot!). Thank you.”
Mike H.5-star
    “I went to Stork Orthdontics to get braces. The coordinator and the orthodontist were really kind and generous. They answered all my questions that I wanted to know without showing any impatience even though there were many questions asked. I can’t wait to go to the next meeting and see how my braces are doing its work!”
YoungJae J.5-star
    “So far I have been very happy with the service provided by Stork Orthodontics concerning my braces. Well, as happy as one can be with braces. The staff at Stork Orthodontics has worked with me to schedule my appointments when they best work for me, and have fit me in when emergencies arose. Dr. Stork even called me once on his way home from a conference and came in that night to see me. Everyone there is extremely helpful and nice. I even received a card congratulating me on my new position at work from the staff. While the whole process of getting and
having braces is not what you would call pleasant, they make it the best experience they can. My expectations have certainly been exceeded by the staff of Stork Orthodontics.”
Tina R.5-star

Marce J.5-star
    “I absolutely love this office. The staff is always so kind and they really put you at ease if your nervous about the dentist. The best part about Stork Orthodontics is the hospitality. It feels more like a visit than an appointment. I usually bring my 2 younger children along and I am always very happy with how accommodating they are. It’s comforting to know not only the needs of a straighter more confident smile are met, but I am also able to just carry along with my busy days without trying to rearrange to keep my little ones out from under anyone’s feet,.”
Angel H.5-star

“My daughter needed braces at a young age. She was uncertain about the process. Dr. Stork and the staff were so encouraging and supportive. She felt immediately comfortable with the staff. They were so good we were willing to drive from ankeny. Her attitude is changed in the positive atmosphere. The respect and care given to my family is off the charts.

Stork orthodontics receives a ten in my book.”
Sharlyn H.5-star

    “Our experience with Stork Orthodontics has been more than exceptional! At the first consultation we felt welcomed and comfortable. Throughout the entire “braces-on” process, they have done everything possible to make my kids happy. Dr. Stork, Jenna, and Lori always greet us with a smile and are always willing to help. Thanks Stork Orthodontics for giving my kids sensational smiles! You guys are the best!”
Janelle O.5-star
    “Megan did alright brushing before coming here but I have seen her grow all since coming here and the awesome job that Dr Stork has done working with my daughter one on one showing her what she needs to do to improve and worked with her to guide her through this exciting adventure getting her teeth looking beautiful. I have taken her to another orthodontist when she was younger and they could not compare to how Awesome Dr. Stork has been with my daughter. I would refer to him in a heartbeat in fact I have to several of my friends and family.”

They gave exact schedules of how long the braces will be on and anything to expect, so there’s no surprises. They use Damon braces, which I researched- state of the art appliances! I am so happy to be working with Dr. Stork; I know my twins are in the best hands and will have beautiful smiles.

Their client service is phenomenal and they provide a personal touch to their service.

Anytime a friend says they’re looking for an orthodontist, I will always make sure to let them know about the quality care the office and Dr. Stork provides.”
