Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Greg Gilbaugh, DDS

Dr. Greg Gilbaugh, DDS

Hello, my name is Greg Gilbaugh and I started The Family Dental Center in 1986.

I attended the University of Iowa on a football scholarship which provided me with many great memories, (along with a couple degenerative knees). I graduated from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry in 1985, and completed residency training in Advanced General Dentistry in 1986. That training established the foundation to pursue a deep desire I had to serve people with compassion and skill in a field that I truly love and am passionate about. I founded The Family Dental Center with a desire to bring together a team of highly skilled and caring people that would share in the vision of providing an exceptional dental experience for individuals and their families as well as having a positive impact on our community. Today that desire and mission grows into reality. I have been married to my best friend Laura since 1985, and we live here in Coralville along with our nine children. I am also a follower of Jesus Christ which provides me the privilege of being part of the pastoral team at Grace Community Church in North Liberty, Iowa. I look forward to serving you and your family and I will do my very best to make your experience with us one that is truly exceptional! I retired from clinical dentistry as of September 2017.
Dr. Dawn Stultz, DDS, MS

Dr. Dawn Stultz, DDS, MS

My name is Dawn Stultz and I am the orthodontist at The Family Dental Center. I have had the privilege of being part of The Family Dental Center team since 2001.

After obtaining my dental degree from the University of Iowa, I completed a residency in orthodontics where I received a Masters Degree and Certificate in orthodontics. Currently I am a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Iowa Society of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, and Iowa Dental Association. I enjoy providing orthodontic treatment for children, teens, and adults. Each person is unique and his or her treatment options are tailored to his or her individual needs and desires. I strive to make your orthodontic care a positive experience in which you are excited with the transformation of your smile. Outside of work I spend time with my husband and three boys on our farm. I also love volunteering at our children’s school, leading children’s and mother’s groups at church, shooting archery, and hiking outdoors. I look forward to seeing you!
Dr. Chad Hanneman, DDS

Dr. Chad Hanneman, DDS

My name is Chad Hanneman, and I am a general dentist at The Family Dental Center. I joined the practice in August of 2009, and am happy I decided to become part of The Family Dental Center team!

I was born and raised in Iowa, graduating from Solon High School, just minutes north of Iowa City. I received my dental degree at The University of Iowa in 1999, and spent an additional year as a resident in Advanced General Dentistry. I am proud to be able to say that I was educated in Iowa, and stayed close to home to help serve the community where I was raised. Practicing in an office where I can provide dentistry for the whole family is exciting for me. Cosmetic and implant dentistry are of particular interest to me. What brings me the most joy at work is to hear my patients comment that I have provided a positive dental experience and eased their fears. Outside of work, I enjoy being a husband to my wife, Laura and a father to our young family of three children. I also enjoy spending time with our two boxer dogs.

I am married to my best friend, Bethany, who I met in high school. Our children, Cole and Charlotte, occupy most of our day as we absolutely love watching them grow up. In my free time, I enjoy woodworking, cheering on the Hawkeyes, and taking our dog, Nola, on walks through the neighborhood. I am very excited that I get to offer dental care to the community that raised me!

Greeting and saying hello to our patients is just one of my favorite things as a Patient Administrator that I do here at The Family Dental Center. Most of my office activities are working insurance benefits for Dr. Stultz, our Orthodontist.

Many do not know that I lived in Germany which gave me the opportunity to visit amazing places like Paris, France; Prague, Czech Republic; and Boleslawiec, Poland.

I want everyone to know that working at The Family Dental Center is an extremely positive place to be. All of this carries forward into our patient care. It is like a large caring family where everyone is treated with kindness and respect the moment they walk through the door.
