Elite Specialty Care Through Collaboration
Periodontics | Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery | Endodontics
For many years specialists in our area have followed the traditional model of specialty care working separately within their own practices. As interdisciplinary referrals, and the treatment options available, have become more numerous and complex, Dr.’s Hogg, Kotecki, Moore and Gell have sought to find a unique way to streamline this issue.
For the first time in private practice, in the State of Iowa, the specialties of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Periodontics, Endodontics and Dental Implantology will operate under the same roof, a true "union of forces" as described by Dr. William Mayo.
With a grand total of 13,500 square feet, our dental community will have access to a state-of-the-art facility for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Periodontics, Endodontics and Dental Implantology.
"The best interest of the patient is the only interest to be considered, and in order that the sick may have the benefit of advancing knowledge, union of forces is necessary."

A root canal is not one of those things that one looks forward to, but if it needs to be done Afton Endodontics is the place. Dr. Gell and his staff are great. Dr. Gell takes time to answer all questions, explains the process, is patient and is skilled at his work. Highly recommend!
Everyone was very nice and answered any questions I had. My procedure was done very professionally and quickly. After I left anytime I called with questions they were very polite and answered my questions. It was a great experience, especially for someone who generally doesn’t like going to the dentist.
