Gary Ihlefeld, D.D.S.
Gary Ihlefeld is a 61-year-old general dentist residing Muscatine, Iowa. He and his wife Jeanne have been married for 37 years and have two grown sons. He was born and raised in Davenport, Iowa. He attended the University of Iowa for both undergraduate course work and the College of Dentistry, graduating in 1978. Although he was accepted into the Oral Pathology program at Iowa, he elected to try general dentistry practice for a few years with the option of returning to graduate studies. He decided not pursue the postgraduate program, but instead focused his attention on raising a family and making a living. By adding mindfulness/heartfulness to activities with his family and friends, his hobbies and taking care of his body with good nutrition and regular exercise, he finds this has only enhanced the joy those experiences provide.
