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 1863, the IDA is home to over 1,800 Iowa dentists, which represents approximately 80% 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.

New IDB Rules Adopted

The Iowa Dental Board (IDB) recently adopted two new rules effective in early 2021. The first rule change will allow continuing education credit for volunteering dental services to low-income or underserved individuals. The new rule allows for dentists, hygienists, and assistants to claim one hour of CE for every three hours of volunteer service, with a maximum of six hours allowed for dentists and hygienists and four hours for assistants every biennium. The rule will take effect on January 20, 2021.
 
The second rule change makes permanent the rule change that allowed dentists and dental hygienists to complete the Central Regional Dental Testing Services, Inc. (CRDTS) and the Commission on Dental Competency Assessments (CDCA) manikin-based examinations to receive a license in Iowa. The Board did add that applicants who complete the CDCA manikin-based examinations must also complete the periodontal add-on. This rule will go into effect on February 3, 2021.
