Welcome to Exceptional Dentistry

Dubuque dentists Kristen Berning, Alexia Oetken, Ted Murray and the friendly team at Exceptional Dentistry want you to experience how comfortable modern dentistry has become and how beautiful your smile can be. Exceptional Dentistry has twice been named the Dubuque area FAVORITE dental office by the Her Magazine, a publication of the Telegraph Herald. Within moments of stepping into our office, you will realize that this is not your average dental office. The facility was designed to accommodate state-of-the-art technology and create a spacious environment in which all generations could feel comfortable. The quality details and clean lines were established to reflect our goal of exceeding expectations.

The Exceptional Dentistry Mission

It is our mission to deliver the very best health-centered, cosmetic, and anti-aging treatment to maintain or create natural, beautiful smiles. We provide value for our patients by ensuring the treatment that they receive is of the highest quality and that they are thoroughly satisfied with their care.

We know that modern dentistry can provide many options and sometimes all of the choices can be overwhelming. Our patients are more educated about their dental health than most and choose our office because they appreciate and value the difference. Our patients are top priority and we look to establish long-lasting relationships. Read our many wonderful patient reviews of our Dubuque Dentists.

Thank you, Emily! ✨🦷
We enjoyed having Emily, an @neiowacc dental assisting student, in our office for her first externship rotation. She spent several Tuesdays with us gaining hands on experience with dental assisting. She did an excellent job and will excel in her future! ✨😁

Emily, thank you so much for the beautiful flowers and very sweet thank you note! 🤍💐✉️

Dr. Kristen Berning spent her morning volunteering with @neiowacc dental assisting students. The students did a great job capturing sets of full mouth series of radiographs on their patients. The students are kind, well-prepared, and professional. They have an excellent team of NICC instructors. The future continues to be bright for dental care in our area! 😁 The Tri-State area is lucky to have Northeast Iowa Community College offering quality education for many important professions for our community.

Modern Dentistry with a Gentle Touch

We understand many patients experience dental anxiety. Exceptional Dentistry’s approach features a gentle touch, so important for children and those suffering from dental anxiety. We offer sedation dentistry as an excellent option for anxious or fearful patients because we value patient comfort. Sedation Dentistry options include nitrous oxide, conscious oral sedation and intravenous sedation. As members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, we dedicate hundreds of continuing education hours per year as a commitment to our craft and advanced training. Progress is impossible without change. We enjoy what we do. We enjoy who we do it for. And we enjoy who we do it with.
