Dr. Jodi Day

I believe dental care should be tailored to each person individually. Providing quality care is my number one goal. I also think patients deserve personalized attention, so they can have an active role in determining their course; this involves presenting options for treatment so that anyone can make an informed decision regarding treatment options and possible outcomes.

Our dental health is closely connected to our overall health. The latest research and medical findings clearly state that dental problems create inflammation that negatively impacts the rest of the body and can complicate undesirable medical conditions, such as diabetes, heart problems, Alzheimer’s, rheumatoid arthritis, and more. It is a partnership to achieve and maintain oral health for the rest of your life. I am passionate about preventing and treating dental problems for my patients, which in turn benefits their overall health. Also, I am proud to be my patients’ health partner.

Moreover, I understand that sometimes patients want to treat their dental problems, but are very scared to see dentists. Our compassionate team is trained to cater to patients afraid of getting their teeth worked on and help them overcome their dental anxiety. I want your experience here with us to be relaxing; having an open line of communication is essential. In addition, I will strive to make dental appointments a positive experience for all, no matter the condition of your teeth or the time between appointments.

Education and Continuing Education

Before becoming a dentist, I graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center as a dental hygienist. After several years in the dental field, I knew I wanted to do more for my patients, so I went back and completed my Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry. Through my education and career thus far, I have learned that individualized patient care and quality dentistry go hand in hand. I strive to provide gentle care to my patients while ensuring that I keep them informed every step of the way.

Being aware of and educated in the most recent advances in dentistry and dental technology is imperative to providing exceptional care to patients. Because of this, I attend multiple hours of continuing education courses each year. Continual development of my education helps me keep my patients comfortable while producing beautiful results.

When I am not working with patients, I’m spending time with my husband and two boys. One of my most favorite things to do is watching my sons play baseball. I also enjoy reading, running, doing yoga to stay mentally and physically healthy.


Dr. Brad Alderman 

As the years progress, my passion for dentistry increases. Serving patients and being able to alleviate their discomfort or address their concerns is what drives me to be a progressive dentist and to consistently better myself. The commitment I made from the moment I opened my practice will always stand; besides my family, my patients are the priority. It’s important to educate my patients and work together with them to achieve their oral health goals, ultimately leading to better overall health. I am proud to be one of the West Lincoln dentists nearby and working together with my team; I am helping the West Lincoln community be the healthiest it can be.

Education and Continuing Education

I earned my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wyoming and my Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry. The years of education has given me the ability to perform the highest quality of care possible for our patients.

When I’m not with patients, I enjoy maintaining an active style. Exercising and eating healthy are important to me. Discovering insightful books and traveling are hobbies I’ll always find enjoyable; however, spending time with my wife and our three children is the absolute greatest part of any day for me!

Dr. Ben Joekel

My goal as your dentist in Lincoln, NE at Coddington Dental, is to listen to your concerns and address your needs when it comes to your dental health. Once your concerns are addressed, our goal as a dental team is to provide you with exceptional care that makes you feel comfortable. Outside of my family, my patients are my priority. I want all of my patients to leave the office with a smile, knowing that their dental team cares for them as an individual and wants only what is excellent for their oral and overall health. I always knew I wanted to work in healthcare because my parents were both in healthcare while growing up.

My father is an Emergency Pediatrician, and my mother is a NICU nurse. It wasn’t until college that I realized I cherished patient interaction. Also, I loved having the ability to help others be healthy every single day. I chose dentistry because I can help my patients with their dental health, and I can get to know each one of them on a more personal level. It makes my job as a dentist so rewarding when we provide comfortable, high-quality dentistry to all of our patients.

Education and Continuing Education

I earned my degree, Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.), from the University of Nebraska and continue to keep myself up-to-date on the latest dentistry has to offer with continuing education.

I treat all of my patients as if they were family. In addition, I always tell my patients to speak up and don’t be shy. Express any concerns you may have to me. If there’s anything I can do to make a patient’s visit more comfortable, I am more than happy to do it!

Outside the Office

My wife and I are expecting our first child this coming August (2019), and we couldn’t be happier! I love spending time with my wife and (son/daughter), cooking as a family, playing basketball, cheering on anything and everything Huskers, and listening to my collection of vinyl records in my man cave. I love to laugh hard and often!
