Dr. Ames Cross, DDS
Dr. Ames Cross went to Urbandale High School before attending Simpson College for his Bachelor's degree. He earned his DDS from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. He has spent six years practicing in the Des Moines metro area; he continues to own and operate Stuart Family Dental since 2017.
Dr. Cross has advanced dental training and expertise, but his favorite part of dentistry is getting to know his patients. He enjoys building mutual trust and respect with patients and giving them the confidence to smile again. When patients are in pain, he can help relieve and manage discomfort and dental anxiety. Dentistry is often a collaborative process, and Dr. Cross helps guide and educate patients to make their own decisions on what works best for them with all the knowledge they need to make those decisions.
When he's not at work, he loves spending time with his wife and three boys, Bennet, Braxson, Bodee, and their dog, Bauer. Along with being involved with their church, he is also passionate about hockey, working out, golf, and cooking delicious family meals.
