Dr. Connors offers the best and newest in dental services. When she tells me what's wrong and what she can do about it, I trust her.

Dr. Connors' office--and Dr. Van Beek, whom I see--is a dream come true. It's like going to a day spa for your mouth. The staff are wonderful, the dental hygienists don't try to force you to talk while their instruments are in your mouth, Dr. Van Beek always answers every question I have with kindne...


Great practice, friendly, excellent dental care, and deeply cares about the health and safety of their patients. Absolutely would recommend it!


Dr. Connors has improved the looks of my teeth SO MUCH by using composite to fill in the gaps around my front teeth--it looks so natural! We have been with her since she started her practice, and we couldn't be happier!


Very appreciative of precautions taken to keep all safe during pandemic. Always friendly, professional service.


A great Dental office with professionals in Hygienists and Dentists. None better in Iowa City.


As always, a seamless excellent experience. Well-organized, customer focused, caring staff.


COVID-19 Update
Office reopening info and new policies for patients to be aware of:

We are excited to announce that we will be reopening the office to non-emergency procedures on June 1st.

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You may see some changes when it’s time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office. Our additional precautions will require our clinical staff to wear enhanced masks and full face shield. These masks make communication exhausting so for the time being, we will need to minimize our social communication in order to focus our energy on your dental well being.

We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in other places in the office for you to use as needed.

We ask everyone to wear a face mask when entering our office and at all times until advised to remove by clinical staff once seated in treatment room. This simple act reduces the spread of germs throughout the non-treatment areas of our office.
Please leave unnecessary personal items at home or in your car during your appointment (examples: jackets, hats, backpacks, etc.)

You will see that we no longer have a waiting room and will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. We will be unable to accommodate extra people at appointments with the patient because we can’t have them in the room and we won’t have a reception area for them to wait either.

Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients thus limiting the number of patients in the office at the same time. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. We will be offering some extended hours to try to get everyone that had to be postponed back on the schedule as soon as we can. These extended hours are temporary. We are classifying them as “catch-up hours”. It will still take some time to get everyone rescheduled so please be patient with us during this recovery time.

We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you and eliminate patients in the reception area as well as to reduce the number of patients in the office at any one time. Please arrive promptly at your assigned time. If you do arrive early, please wait outside until your appointment time. We will have someone greet you at the door and es**rt you to treatment room. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. If your appointment was postponed, we will contact you to get back on the schedule. Again, please be patient as we deal with our 2 1/2 month backlog.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Hello from our office!
We are in the planning mode of opening the office back up. We were happy to virtually see each other’s faces today via
a Zoom staff meeting. We are excited to announce that our plan is to open up on June 1st.

Over the next two weeks, we will be adjusting patient and staff schedules and undergoing training on the updated policies that will be our “new norm” due to COVID.

For all the patients whose appointments were postponed...Please don't contact us yet to get rescheduled.
Beginning June 1st, we will be contacting everyone who was postponed.

In the meantime, please remain “patient” patients while we develop our new protocols.
Rest assured…we are just as excited to see each of you as you are to see us!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Happy Monday Everyone!

COVID-19 update:
Today and tomorrow we have thinned down the schedule in order to minimize the amount of patients in the office at the same time and to eliminate patients sitting together in the waiting room. We were getting prepared for an indefinite closure and that has been validated by releases made last night by both the American Dental Association and the Iowa Dental Association which have released recommendation for offices to postpone non-elective treatment.
Starting Thursday, our office will be closed to all non-emergency appointments. Our doctors will be able to see patients of record with a dental emergency during our closure. Please call the office and leave a message and/or call the emergency number on the voicemail (depending on what time of day you call). We will be checking and returning text messages, emails, and phone calls periodically through this time. We will not be reappointing any patients until we are back in the office operating at full capacity. We will be re-evaluating the situation and convey updates as we get them. Please stay safe and thank you for your business!


Very friendly service.


We love Dr. Ann! She has cared for the various dental needs of our family of four since the kids were little--and my husband and I were both patients before we had kids. Dr. Connors is an excellent dentist, invested in the community, and you can tell she truly cares about you as a person.


The team at this business is outstanding. They care about their patients and it shows in all they do. Their business delivers high quality patient service, professionalism, and attention to detail. I highly recommend this care provider and have been recommending them to others since 1996.


Dr Connors is always friendly, helpful and very professional. She's attentive, listens to what I have to say and explains to a greater detail questions that I have She's also very respectful of my whishes. The staff is also very friendly, helpful and sensitive.


I love the fact that Dr. Connor's dental practice is housed in an older home, very much like the one I grew up in. But don't be fooled by the older, comfy surroundings, they have the best staff using high quality equipment. Been going there for years, it's the only place I'll go.


My first appointment was today and they answered all my questions and helped me understand my options.


Reception check in was fast and friendly, my dental hygienist did a really great job. Everything ran on time without me feeling like my cleaning was being rushed. I would recommend Dr. Van Beek and his team to anyone looking for a good dentist in the downtown area.


Before finding Dr. Ann Connors as a dentist, I dreaded going to the dentist. My first visit to Dr. Connor's office changed that forever. Dr. Connors is a cut above the rest. She goes the extra mile, takes time with you and really cares about her impact on your oral health. In short, she is the best.


Everyone at Ann Connors is professional, personable and efficient. They communicate their concerns and I leave improved and guilt-free. I've been a patient there for 20 years and I expect many more years to come.


Dr Conners always remembers me. Friendly staff.


Always a good experience. Dr. Connors is amazing - very skilled and friendly!


Dr. Connors provides friendly, pain free, and affordable dental care.
