What our patients are saying about us…

As a pediatrician and a mom, I couldn’t recommend Dr. Diana and The Nest more! Dr. Diana has a calming presence and her love for children, and passion for pediatric dentistry is unparalleled. She and her staff are professional, kind, and knowledgeable. Look no further, she is the best in the Des Moines metro.”  -Dr. Jessi Greenley

I am amazed every time we go. Dr Pelzer is so patient. She works with the kids so they feel in control, but leads so positively. My kids actually like the dentist now! I love that I feel they get quality cleanings and xrays- especially because they had anxiety before coming here and we lacked some of this before. Also, I feel comfortable Dr Pelzer can lead them through more events than just cleanings too! 10/10 stars and more!!!”  -Jessica

The staff was great! They were all warm and inviting and my little man got comfortable with them very quick. They informed us on best practices and techniques around all things baby teeth. Will continue going and strongly encouraging friends to send their kids here as well.” – Robert M.

Amazing!! We love The Nest and recommend to all of our friends with littles. My 3.5 year old said “that was awesome!!” ” – Elizabeth

“I took my daughter to The Nest for her first dental appointment today and it was better than I could ever imagined. The entire staff is wonderful and was great at making my daughter feel comfortable. We will for sure be coming back for future visits!” -Megan D.

“Dr. Diana and her team do a fantastic job making sure the kiddos feel super comfortable and making each child feel welcome! My son had only been to the dentist once before (when he was too young to remember) and she explained each thing before she did it, which it really set him at ease and kept the appointment fun!” -Emily C.

I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Pelzer! She wasn’t even our dentist when we contacted her on a Sunday morning. We were panicked calling around to pediatric dental offices trying to get our 7-year old son in somewhere after a freak accident where he lost some permanent teeth and had to get them put back in. She opened up her office and met us on that Sunday at noon and was able to stabilize his and save his teeth! She even called us that night and the following day to see how he was doing. She is amazing and if you take your kids to her practice they will be in great hands!!” – Staci F.

“We have two kiddos on the Autism Spectrum that hate visiting the dentist but since meeting Dr. Diana, they look forward to visiting her and showing her how hard they’ve been working to keep their teeth nice & clean! Dr. Diana recommended several toothbrushes and toothpastes to us when we were struggling with some of the sensory issues associated with ASD and teeth brushing. She made our oldest super comfortable right before she had dental surgery one Friday morning in December 2017 and personally called the following Monday to see how she had felt over the weekend. We cannot rave enough about Dr. Diana and how wonderful she has been to our family.” -Noel C.

Dr. Diana is friendly, informative and makes our toddler feel as comfortable as possible! The Pelzers’ are some of the best people you’ll ever meet!” -Laura E.

After weeks of painful breastfeeding, Dr. Diana helped diagnose our 8 week old son’s tongue tie. She squeezed us into her schedule when it was convenient for us, even though she had a full day. She then used her laser to help correct the problem, which left him with little- to- no discomfort. I noticed an instant difference in my son’s latch, and by the end of the day feedings were pain free. She personally called back after hours to make sure he was doing ok. It makes me wish I would have reached out earlier, but I’m so thankful for all of her help and support!” – Abbie D.
