Sioux City IA Dentist

Meet the Doctor

Dentist Dr. Ivan Salmons Sioux City IADr. Ivan Salmons is pleased to be able to offer excellent dentistry in Sioux City and the communities in Northwest Iowa, Northeast Nebraska, and Southwest South Dakota. He opened his practice in 1980 at 1855 Indian Hills Drive, Sioux City, IA.

Dr. Salmons grew up in Charles City, Iowa, and attended the University of Iowa as an undergraduate, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree. He also attended University of Iowa College of Dentistry to obtain his Doctor of Dental Science degree.

After graduation, he entered into military service as a captain practicing dentistry for the Army stationed at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey. He has continued his dental education by completing numerous postgraduate courses in orthodontics and is a member of the American Orthodontic Society (AOS). His most recent specialized training has been with the Shatkin First Mini Implants Center in Buffalo, NY, where he has obtained certifications in the placement of mini implants. Dr. Salmons has found this to be very gratifying since his patients find much satisfaction in the mini implants results for single replacement teeth and the stabilization of dentures.

He has grown his practice through new dental innovations. His latest dental technology, such as low-radiation digital radiography (X-rays) and same-day crowns (CEREC™), allows him to provide his patients with faster and more comfortable dental care.

Dr. Salmons has always been known by his patients for his gentle and friendly dental care.

He is very involved in the Sioux City community. In his spare time, he has a passion for historic restoration and was a board member on the Sioux City Historic Preservation Commission. Dr. Salmons has served as president of the Sioux City Dental Society. He is married with a son and daughter and is a proud grandfather of four beautiful and talented grandchildren: Ellie, Gabriel, Chloe, and Tyler. When not working, he loves spending time restoring his 1950 Ford convertible.
