Pediatric ENT

Your Home for the Treatment of Pediatric ENT Problems

Little ears require a little extra care. We cover every common ear, nose and throat condition that affects your kids.

Tubes and tonsils are our bread and butter.

Whether it’s an ear infection with your infant, chronic tonsillitis with your teen or a nose issue in between, our ENTs care for the whole scope of pediatric conditions, including:

  • Recurrent infections of the ear, throat, tonsils and sinuses
  • Chronic nasal congestion
  • Tonsil and adenoid issues
  • Nasal allergies
  • Pediatric sleep apnea and snoring

And when your kid’s condition falls outside our realm, you have allergists and audiologists a few doors away and an entire team of specialists just down the hall waiting to help.


First Priority Icon

Your child gets first priority.

When you’re up all night comforting a crying child, we’re ready to help. Pediatric ENT patients are our top priority, so you can expect an appointment within days, not weeks. No matter if your child is a current patient at The Iowa Clinic or sees a pediatrician elsewhere, we make sure every kid gets in quickly.


Five Star Team

Trust your child’s health to a five-star team

Our five otolaryngologists are each rated at nearly five stars by parents across central Iowa. We’re also the only ENT team trusted to chip in at Blank Children’s Hospital when a child shows up to the ER or is admitted for an ear, nose and throat issue.

Meet our team of ENT experts at The Iowa Clinic.

The Iowa Clinic’s ear, nose and throat doctors are a unified team that stays up-to-date on the latest health trends and research. Our ENTs split their time between our West Des Moines and Ankeny clinics, so you can easily make your appointment at the most convenient location.

There’s nothing scary about seeing an ENT specialist.

We see kids like yours every single day, helping to resolve their conditions and bring you peace of mind. When you bring your child in, you can find comfort knowing that your visit will feel just like your average well child check-up with your primary care provider. Every exam includes everything they’ve already experienced:

  • Checking their ears with an otoscope
  • Feeling around the head and neck
  • Looking into their nose to make sure everything looks right
  • Opening wide for a peek at the throat and tonsils

When your child’s condition calls for something more, our team can provide hearing testing, audiometric testing and advanced endoscopy to find the answers you seek.
