Why Contribute to IDPAC?

As we begin a new year for IDPAC, it is important we start strong! We need to have as much political capital as possible when we meet with legislators to have tough conversations on topics including increasing Medicaid reimbursement rates and reducing administrative burdens.

For us to have a strong start, we need just six dentists a day to contribute $250 during the month of July. This will get us halfway to our $100,000 goal by August and put IDPAC in a position for success as we begin meeting with legislators. Make your impact on the future of dentistry in Iowa by contributing to IDPAC today!

."Supporting the IDPAC is the way in which we know the voice of Iowa dentists will be heard. Particularly in the current COVID-world and the post-COVID world, it is imperative to support IDPAC as I am very concerned that forces outside of dentistry will take advantage of the current situation to promote alternative dental practice models/providers to the harm of our practices, as well as the safety of our patients." -IDA Immediate Past President Dr. Nathan Hehr, Founder's Club contributor


“I have found that very few people in state government have any knowledge of modern dentistry and its value in a person’s health. I answer dental questions on an almost daily basis when the legislature is in session.
Having a dentist in the Iowa legislature presents the perfect opportunity to educate government officials and advance issues that are important to the dental profession. That is why I believe it is vital to have a dentist in the Iowa legislature.
During the shutdown of dental offices due to COVID-19, I had several phone calls with the Governor’s staff and explained how dentists would be willing and able to make the necessary precautions to help mitigate the spread of COVID and follow CDC guidelines. I believe these calls helped get dental offices open ahead of projected time." -Iowa Representative Thomas Jeneary, DDS, on the importance of dentists being involved in state politics
