Erika Peddicord, DDS

Dr. Erika Peddicord earned her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Integrated Physiology from the University of Iowa before going on to receive her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. During her education and her initial experiences as a family dentist, Dr. Peddicord came to believe in the power of preventive dentistry and patient education. These beliefs became the cornerstone of her Ankeny practice when she opened the doors of Peddicord Family Dentistry in 2009.

Dr. Peddicord focuses on building lasting patient relationships. When patients feel comfortable and well informed, they feel empowered to follow treatment plans, take proper care of their teeth and gums at home, and seek out professional dental help when a problem arises. In Dr. Peddicord’s opinion, a healthy mouth should feel good, look good, and work properly. This philosophy influences the procedures she performs, the materials she uses, and the technology she employs.

A member of the Iowa Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the Des Moines District Dental Society, Dr. Erika Peddicord is licensed through the Dental Board of Iowa.

Dr. Peddicord and her husband, Patrick, have lived in Ankeny for over 10 years, and enjoy raising their two young children in the family-friendly community. Outside of the office, she enjoys playing with her children, taking them to various activities, socializing with friends, exercising, gardening, cooking, and being a part of her church community.

Since 2009, Dr. Erika Peddicord has assembled a top-notch team of highly skilled, compassionate, and friendly dental professionals who all have the same goal in mind: helping you maintain optimal dental health.
