Dr. Brandy Helms

I grew up in western South Dakota and eastern Iowa, where I have always enjoyed small towns and close-knit communities. My husband, Jory, is from Chicago, went to college and lived in eastern Iowa for the past 15 years. We met at the University of Iowa where he played football for the Hawkeyes, and I completed college, dental school, and residency. We love the Midwest and have always thought it would be great to start our careers and family in an area like the Chippewa Valley.

 

My husband and I enjoy the outdoors including running, biking, and kayaking. We also enjoy cooking, playing with our dogs, cuddling with our cat, and cheering on the Hawkeye football team. We have also recently welcomed our first child, Jameson, and are loving being first time parents watching him grow and learn every day.

 

My interest in dentistry started at an early age when my brother severely fractured his front tooth. I found it amazing that one day it was” broken in half” and the next day it looked like nothing had happened! This experience showed me how a nice smile and a fixed broken tooth could change a person’s self-esteem and help them to become more social and confident. In high school and college, I volunteered work with children.It was then that I realized how much I enjoyed working with children of all ages and those with special health care needs. Throughout dental school, I had wonderful mentors who helped shape my passion for Pediatric Dentistry. My goal is to help patients and their parents feel comfortable and welcome in the dental setting while providing excellent dental care for the children of this community.
