Dr. Dona Prince, DDS
Dr. Prince was born right here in Sioux City. This is her home town. She earned her undergraduate degree at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. After receiving her undergraduate degree, she attended the Loyola University School of Dentistry in Chicago, IL and earned her DDS in 1981. She also has earned a Fellowship in AGD. Continuing education is important to Dr. Prince. In 2013 she received the Mastership Award from the Academy of General Dentistry. She has received the Standard Accreditation for Laser treatments and is working on her Advanced Accreditation. Her big goal and big focus with the practice is to stay current and up to date with the latest dental developments and technologies. Success and perseverance is not something new to Dr. Prince and her practice. While the practice was originally established in 1981 (as the first female dentist ever in Sioux City), the practice grew and progressed to the point where she could move the practice to a more easily accessible and better location in 2002. “One of the great benefits of the newer location,” Dr. Prince says, “is that there’s more parking.” Throughout her career, Dr. Prince has become a respected member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Academy of Laser Dentistry and the Special Care in Dentistry Organization (an organization for dentists to provide care and treatment for special needs in dentistry). Dr. Prince is married and has two grown children. She is a animal lover and is a proud owner of a miniature dachshund.
