Dr. Jonathan Karch

Dr. Jonathan Karch was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa. He completed his undergraduate studies in biomedical engineering and psychology at the University of Iowa. He then continued on to obtain his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry.

Dr. Jon has spent the past years practicing dentistry in Anchorage, Alaska, with the Indian Health Service at the Alaska Native Medical Center.  As a hospital dentist Dr. Jon provided comprehensive and urgent care to the Native Alaskan and Native American population in and around the Anchorage area. In addition, he made regular trips to the Aleutian island of Atka to provide care to the residents of one of the most remote places in the United States.

Dr. Jon and his wife, Danielle, loved the opportunity to explore the beautiful state of Alaska but always planned on returning to his home city of Des Moines. They recently welcomed their first child, Hudson Jon Karch (21.5″, 8 lbs, 1 oz), in June, 2016. When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Jon enjoys mountain biking, camping, skiing, and participating in recreational sports. He is thrilled to be back in Iowa and looks forward to serving the Des Moines community!
