The Dental Studio is absolutely wonderful!

The Dental Studio is absolutely wonderful! I had been looking for a new dentist and I am glad that I ended up here! From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted right away and offered snacks while you wait. Dr. KArch and his assistant Beth are so kind and fun to talk to! From my first consultation to my crown and filling, they made me feel comfortable and that none of my questions were silly. They make sure you are numb and totally comfortable before any work is done. Great chairside manner and I appreciate that! I would highly recommend them to anyone!!!

Love the Staff

Love the staff, they are so accommodating and friendly. The dental rooms feel open and spacious thanks to the ceiling to floor windows they have in every room. Each room has a tv screen that you can use to watch Netflix while you're having work done on your teeth, or for the dentist to show you what you're X-rays look like. Overall a really great experience, wish I could give them more than 5 stars.

Everyone was very personable and friendly.

My experience at The Dental Studio of Iowa was exceptional. Everyone was very personable and friendly. I went in for a routine cleaning, and a small cavity was discovered. Dr. Karch was able to fix it right then and there, saving me from having to take more time off work.

The Dental Studio of Iowa is a truly outstanding establishment. It feels like all of their employees- administrative assistant, dental assistants, and dentists- sincerely care about their patients. The atmosphere is bright and inviting. The staff is friendly, positive, and helpful. The quality of service has been next to none.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Karch and my experience there!

After my dental insurance changed I needed to find a new dentist. Previously, I had gone to one of the largest dental offices in the metro. I tried a dental office that is a national brand and was not impressed by their quick turnover and poor dental cleaning. I tried the dental studio after a recommendation from a friend. My experience was the best experience I have ever had at a dentist. I had no idea what I was missing out on from going to my old dentist for so long. My old dentist scrapped at my teeth in an uninviting procedure room with no windows. At the dental studio, the facility is state of the art and I enjoyed being in control of the TV in front of me. I was impressed by the kindness of the front desk staff, the knowledgeable and personable Dr. Karch, and the impressive technology. Every time I went to a dentist my gums would bleed and be sore for the rest of the day. The dental studio's technology uses water to make the teeth cleaning process enjoyable. I was very impressed and have been referring my family and friends. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Karch and my experience there!

Very professional and friendly staff

We visited the Dental Studio of Iowa for the first time a few weeks ago. Very professional and friendly staff. Dr. Elmitt and Ashley did a wonderful job making my three-year-old comfortable and happy during her cleaning.

Incredibly friendly staff

Incredibly friendly staff and Dr. Jonathan Karch is the most gentle dentist I've ever had. I had to get eleven cavities filled and the several appointments I had with them were virtually painless.

I can’t recommend Dr. Karch highly enough

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.

Dr. Elmitt provides the utmost care to his patients

Dr. Elmitt provides the utmost care to his patients. He gets to know you as a person, which is different than other dentists I’ve been to. When people say they don’t like going to the dentist, I always recommend Dr. Elmitt because of his excellent personal care for his patients.

I’m really happy with the results

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

Dr. Karch is an exceptional dentist

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!

Five stars all around

Dr. Elmitt is professional, extremely gentle on my sensitive teeth, and an all-around good guy. When I had a dentist in a different state tell me that I needed some major work done immediately, I had them send the x-rays to Dr. Elmitt, who assured me that I did not need any of the expensive work that they were proposing. He has surrounded himself with excellent assistants and office staff. And he has donated toothbrushes to several of my charitable causes. Five stars all around.
