Welcome to the Iowa Dental Association

The Iowa Dental Association (IDA) is the premier professional association representing dentists in the state of Iowa.  In existence since 1864, the IDA is home to over 1,700 Iowa dentists, which represents approximately 84% of the licensed dentists in the state.  

All IDA member dentists are not only members of the IDA, but also the American Dental Association (ADA) and their local district society.

IDA’s mission is to encourage the improvement of the health of the public, to promote the art and science of dentistry and to represent the interests of the members of the dental profession and the public which it serves.

IDA Voices Concern Over Families First Coronavirus Response Act

Yesterday the IDA signed off on a letter submitted by the ADA to the Department of Labor regarding the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
Specifically, IDA voiced concerns that “the leave requirements currently being negotiated may create an extreme hardship for these small businesses that do not have additional staff to cover for necessary employees who are out and that are already facing economic turmoil as a result of COVID-19.
Under both the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion and the Emergency Paid Sick Leave sections of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, the Secretary of Labor has the regulatory authority to exempt small businesses with fewer than 50 employees 'when the imposition of such requirements would jeopardize the viability of the business as a going concern.'

The ADA urges the Secretary to immediately act to issue these exemptions, and, recognizing that these requirements would jeopardize the viability of dental offices, issue them for all dental practices with fewer than 50 employees."
