Fort Des Moines Dental Services » History of Fort Des Moines Dental

The Fort Des Moines Dental Clinic is located at 6100 SW 9th St in Des Moines Iowa. Dr David McCoy had the small brick building built in 1963 and shared it with Dr Schaffer who was a medical doctor. A few years later Dr Schaffer left and Dr King came to make it an all dental clinic. Dr Lazar became Dr McCoy’s associate in 1975 and bought into the practice in 1978. Dr McCoy retired in 1995 and Dr Lazar then had bought the entire clinic.

Dr Lazar remodeled the building in 1993 into a 4100 square foot modern facility. Dr Sandle who was an associate with Dr McCoy, then joined Dr Lazar along with Dr Richard Lyman and then Dr Michael Howes. Currently we have 3 dentists, 4 hygienist, 6 assistants, 4 receptionist and one office manager on staff. Dr Lazar has retired and Dr Michael Howes has bought the practice.
