Hello everyone! My name is Dr. Nicole Brummel, co-owner and dentist at Altoona Smiles. Thank you for taking time to learn more about myself and our practice.

After graduating from Southeast Polk High School in 2002, I attended Iowa State University for undergraduate studies. I am a graduate of The University of Iowa College of Dentistry class of 2009. While attending The University of Iowa I met my incredible husband, Daniel. We were married at St. John and Paul in Altoona in July of 2008, and now have two amazing children, Isabelle and Benjamin. Daniel and I enjoy spending our limited free time golfing and traveling. Our family loves being in the Des Moines area close to our family and friends.

As a dentist, my goal is to always help patients achieve a beautiful, healthy smile in a relaxed and caring environment. We believe an attractive smile is the best way to create a positive and lasting first impression.

Let us help you achieve your best smile today!
