Great place and family friendly. Lexie (dental hygienist) was wonderful with my 5 and 3 year old today as she cleaned their teeth. Wendy (receptionist) was so kind to my kids and helped keep them entertained as I got my teeth cleaned. I have always had a great experience here and highly recommend going!

A native of West Des Moines, IA, Dr. Daniel Krook has been caring for patients at Dentistry At Somerset in Ames since 2018. He earned his undergraduate degrees in biology and accounting at the University of Iowa. He then completed a master’s degree in biomedical sciences in Miami before attending dental school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Bradenton, FL, and Erie, PA. Dr. Krook gained additional experience at a hospital-based dental residency program in Reading, PA.
After living on the East Coast for six years, he is happy to be back in Central Iowa near his family. Currently, he is pursuing post-graduate education with the Kois Center in Seattle, WA.

What Dr. Krook loves about being a dentist is the privilege of serving people on a daily basis. Much like Dr. Niegsch, Dr. Krook has a spirit of service and generosity and enjoys providing treatment to those in need.

Dr. Krook looks forward to providing care to the Ames community for years to come.
Somerset Dentistry is a fabulous place, like the Disney Land of dentistry! I had the best dentist appointment ever. People are very welcoming and nice. They even gave me a tour of the place and a gift since this was my first time there. They offered comforting stuff such as a weighted blanket, aroma therapy etc during the appointment. Their technology (X-ray machine) is top notch! The dentist (the very new one in this place) was an amazing person. She looked into everything in my records very carefully, answered all my questions to the best extent. The dental hygienist was also a super amazing person, made me feel very comfortable throughout the appointment. I would recommend Somerset Dentistry to anyone who is looking for a new dentist.
This, without a doubt, is the best overall dentist-related experience I’ve ever had and I would highly recommend it to my family and friends. I’ve never liked going to the dentist (an understatement), but after a few visits, they’ve managed to actually make me feel “good” about going which is a major accomplishment. Everyone I’ve interacted with at the office is polite, friendly, and professional, and seem truly interested in making me feel comfortable. I’m just so impressed with this place not just as a dentist’s office, but also as a business. It seems they’ve thought of everything to make the experience wonderful – and it is. Thank you Dentistry At Somerset!
I don’t normally review a lot but This place is definitely deserving of it. Highly recommend if you are looking for a new dentist. I went for my first time, and they greeted me with a very friendly tour and a gift, and really made me feel like they were listening to my concerns. The new doctor was amazing and the hygienist was also really great. Going to be coming back regularly from now on!
Well, this is not your ordinary dentist! I have been going to a dentist for over 45 years and this one was the best. I can only recommend Dentistry at Somerset very highly. Courteous and friendly staff (Bailee, Dr. Morgan), top-of-the-line equipment and excellent care. I have already recommended them to my colleagues. I think this may be my first (or second) public Google review. This is indicative of how happy I was with the visit.
Welcoming place for all your dental needs. I was put at ease the moment I walked in the door. I appreciate the welcoming atmosphere and the smiles. Top notch service from all that provided my dental care. I will definitely recommend this dental practice to others. Loved the menu of items that were offered to help with making my appointment better. Thank you!!
My experience here has been nothing but phenomenal. It had been a while since I last seen a dentist, and I was nervous, but the team here has done a great job making me comfortable. they work very well together and have made the best plan to continue to get my teeth and gums healthy as possible. The added comfort menu truely does help and actually getting a tour at the start was very helpful. I’m glad I choose them to restart the care I need.
I had a good experience at Dentistry at Somerset! My hygienist was very good! Sorry but I don’t remember her name, (getting old). I don’t remember names like I used to be able to do! Instead of having to scrape teeth, she can now use water to clean teeth! I liked that better and it’s better for her, too! My dentist was new to me but she did a good job too and told me something to watch!
I’ve never had a bad experience at Dentistry at Somerset. I absolutely adore their “comfort menu” or items that help people like myself with anxiety. I always go for the weighted blanket, squish ball, or lavender scents. Aside from that, their service is phenomenal. Every cavity I’ve (unfortunately) had has been filled with no pain and no problems, they even got me a new implant tooth within two weeks! Their cleaning service is very cheap and give gorgeous results too. I’m glad I found such a wonderful and affordable dentist in Ames. I highly recommend it!
Dentistry at Somerset is BY FAR the most welcoming, understanding, compassionate dentist office I have ever been to (and I’ve been to several). 😉 They clearly have considered patients’ fears and anxieties about going to the dentist and pulled out all the stops to relieve that anxiety. I felt seen and heard. I felt like every single employee–from the front desk to the hygienist, to the dentist–genuinely cared about me as a person, not only my teeth and mouth. I felt, dare I say pampered during my appointment. At the DENTIST! How many people can say that!
I felt like I was in magical spa-land that happened to offer the service of cleaning and investigating my teeth.
10/10 would recommend this dentist office.
