About Dr. Nancy I Hammond, DDS MS

With over 30 years of experience serving Iowa, Dr. Hammond has had the privilege of getting to know many families. Throughout this journey, she has been a steadfast advocate of children’s dental health from birth through college. As she embarks on the next phase of her career and returns to private practice at Shadow Creek Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Hammond hopes to treat each child as if they were family in a relaxed and compassionate environment.

Since graduating from the Loyola Chicago School of Dental Surgery with a doctorate degree and the University of Iowa School of Dentistry with a master’s degree, Dr. Hammond has set her sights on becoming the most accomplished and respected pediatric dentist possible. Her impressive resume has included associate dentist, educator, business owner of a solo and multi-practitioner practice, and manager of a dental service operation (DSO). Excited to return to private practice, Dr. Hammond and the rest of the staff at Shadow Creek are thrilled to offer the highest quality dental care in a brand new, state-of-the-art clinic.

When Dr. Hammond isn’t treating patients, she loves to spend time with her six children, their four spouses and 10 grandchildren. She also has two special furry friends, Ranger and Tess, who will be visiting the office frequently. She enjoys the outdoors and spending time at the lake with friends and family.
