About Us

Our Mission

The Opal Dental Co. Promise

We are wholeheartedly dedicated to crafting a seamless, comforting, and bespoke patient experience from the moment you walk in. We understand that there is a stigma when it comes to a dentist’s office and dental care in general, so we’re on a mission to turn that on its head. We want you to feel pampered, cared for, and valued, no matter where you are in your dental journey! Dr. Del Carpio and the rest of the team are committed to providing beautiful, high quality work while treating every patient regardless of age with patience and compassion.

Get To Know

Dr. Nicole Del Carpio

Dr. Nicole Del Carpio was born in La Paz, Bolivia and after a few years of her childhood in Iowa, she returned to her birthplace for three years of high school. After returning to the US and graduating there, she realized she wanted to pursue a career in healthcare so she attended the University of Iowa and received her BS in Spanish and Pre-Dental Studies. Later, she received her DDS from the University of Iowa College of Hospitals and Clinics. Dr. Del Carpio shadowed surgeons, clinical physicians, researchers, and dentists, ultimately falling in love with dentistry for its nature of improving someone’s life and confidence, taking them out of pain, and keeping them healthy. Her compassion for fearful patients and children, specifically, kept her out of the cold and corporate hospitals and clinics and allowed her to explore the artistry of esthetics, interact with patients one-on-one, and work with her hands. 

When she’s not in the office, Dr. Del Carpio enjoys spending her time with her daughter Mila, her husband Kelsey, and her two playful pups. Together, they love hiking and gardening, and visiting museums, coffee shops, and restaurants. Dr. Del Carpio also loves reading, watercolor painting, fixing up her house by learning new skills on YouTube, and getting together with her group of friends aptly named ‘The Brunch Club.’
