After graduating from Drake University, where he received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biology, he transferred to the University of Iowa College of Dentistry.

Staying up to date with dental procedures, patient education and new technology is a priority for Dr. Nagel. His practice in general and cosmetic dentistry focuses on utilizing the latest technology such as Cerec, a digital dentistry product, and frequently referred to as “Same Day Dentistry”. He is a member of the Iowa Dental Association, American Dental Association, and served as past president of the Des Moines District Dental Society.


A day of golf, reading or spending time with his family and friends is where you will find him when not treating his patients. Dr. Nagel, his wife, Kori, and three daughters are all active members of the St. Pius X Catholic Church.
