JoAnn German Wahle, D.D.S.

Dr. German was born and raised on a farm near Humphrey Nebraska. She is a 1984 summa cum laude graduate of Creighton University. In 1985 she completed a hospital General Practice Residency at Indiana University and then moved to Iowa where she opened her first practice in North Liberty. After nearly 14 years she sold North Liberty Dental to be home with her children, Max, Erin and Keile. Since that time she co-founded the dental clinic at the Community Health Free Clinic in Cedar Rapids where she volunteered on a weekly basis providing care to patients without dental insurance. She also provided dental services on a temporary basis for dentists in the area who needed time away from their work for maternity leave, health reasons etc. Dr. German’s children are now grown and she felt that she had more private practice dentistry work to do so she opened Midtown Dental Boutique in Cedar Rapids.  Dr. German has been married to Steven Wahle for 31 years. She enjoys walking, hiking, cooking and reading. More than anything she loves to spend time with her husband, children, their spouses & her two grandchildren.
