The Dental Studio of Iowa | Testimonials
  • Dr. Karch is an exceptional dentist. I saw him after another dentist diagnosed I needed a root canal. A specialist did the root canal but Dr. Karch was there for after care and to place the crown. Dr. Karch provides a welcoming, comfortable and professional approach to oral health care. No procedures are recommended without deep consideration for the absolute necessity of the actions and costs. Again, can’t say enough about how wonderful the experience was with Dr. Karch. I would recommend him to everyone I know!

    - Shelana L. from Waukee

  • Dr. Karch made Invisalign a smooth and effortless experience.  He is a very approachable and caring dentist. I had discussed with him my concerns about my lower teeth crowding with age. He then recommended Invisalign and I decided to try it because I didn’t like the idea of wearing braces . Throughout the process, Dr. Karch was so kind and encouraging. I’m really happy with the results and I thank Dr. Karch for his expertise. My teeth look great!

    - Linda G. from Johnston

  • I have always been fearful of the dentist but that completely changed when I met Dr. Karch. He was understanding of my situation and discussed how we could get everything taken care of as smoothly as possible. He was true to his word – he provided excellent, gentle care and got my teeth healthy again. I can’t recommend Dr. Karch highly enough. He truly cares about the care he provides.

We Look Forward to Welcoming You to Our Practice!

Welcome to Our Practice

Welcome to The Dental Studio of Iowa, established and operated by Dr. Connor Elmitt and Dr. Jonathan Karch. 

Dr. Elmitt and Dr. Karch are natives of Johnston, and during their years away at school, they both envisioned returning home and giving back to the community that helped raise them. That dream has become a reality, and today they are excited to provide friends and neighbors with warm and supportive care in a brand-new, state-of-the-art dental office.

Comprehensive, Personalized Care for All Ages

As a comprehensive family dental practice, we cater to the unique needs of everyone in your family. Whether your little one is ready for their first visit or you are a senior who has age-specific concerns, we can help. 

At The Dental Studio of Iowa, our goal is to inspire you and your family to a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles by providing personalized treatment that is as unique as you are. One of the ways we do this is by taking the time to get to know you and learning what’s important to you.

It’s not just about your oral health, either, because we believe in treating you as a whole person, not only as a dental patient. That is why we are always interested to learn about other areas of your life that might impact your oral health decisions including your family life, career, general health, and any unique circumstances with which you might be dealing. 

Advanced Dentistry with a Personal Touch

We are pleased to offer a wealth of technology that sets us apart from other practices in the area. In fact, The Dental Studio of Iowa is the only practice in Johnston that offers state-of-the-art 3-D cone beam imaging. This technology allows Dr. Elmitt and Dr. Karch to plan procedures like implant placement, dental extractions, root canals, and orthodontic treatment with a high degree of precision that delivers the most favorable outcomes. 

Most people have places they’d rather be than in a dental office. But we aim to make your experiences with us so comfortable and uncomplicated that you’ll never want to skip an appointment again. We offer music and TVs with Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu in every treatment room. If you would prefer to drift away during your treatment, we also offer calming nitrous oxide and oral sedation for your complete comfort.
