Meet Dr. Nicholas Luke

My journey to become a pediatric dentist started with coaching middle school football while I was at the University of Northern Iowa. I truly loved that experience and was so proud of my team. After this I knew I wanted to work with children. After getting accepted to dental school at the University of Iowa, I found myself sitting in orientation learning about the different dental specialties. That’s when it clicked. I knew I was going to pursue pediatric dentistry. So, during dental school, I applied to various pediatric dental residencies and was accepted to Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry. I did everything I could to make my dream a reality and in 2018 I earned my Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry!

My passion for pediatric dentistry comes from a deep desire to serve and make a difference in my community. I grew up in a very small, rural town and learned from a young age that you should always give back to your community. As a pediatric dentist, I get to do just that. I genuinely love coming to the office and seeing kids from all the communities that we serve. I try to make an impact on their lives by providing a friendly, fun, and entertaining atmosphere while providing the best care possible.

My passion for pediatric dentistry is only outdone by the love I have for my family. I have a beautiful wife, Sara, who I met while we were in dental school. She makes all things in life worth doing. We have a son, Julien, who is the spitting image of his dad, but has his mother’s eyes and we are expecting a daughter, Lennox, in July of 2022! We have two dogs and three cats, so it’s a full house! In our free time we like to golf, hunt, read, ski, go to the movies, and spend time with family and friends.

Education and professional associations

Through my professional affiliations, I’m able to connect and collaborate with fellow orthodontists and dentists to allow for continued growth and sharing of knowledge, ensuring that we all provide quality care to the patients we serve. I’m proud to be a professional member of the following associations:
