October is the official IMOM Local month! Has your office signed up
yet? We know how much we all enjoy the large-scale IMOM, but until we’re able to resume that in 2022, here’s your chance to participate in IMOM in your own community!
Are you interested in participating, but not sure where to start? To assist dentists and staff in hosting their own IMOM Local event in their office, the Iowa Dental Foundation (IDF) is offering a townhall on Monday, August 9 from 6:30 to 7:30 PM. This townhall will answer all of your questions and feature a panel of dentists who have conducted free clinics in their offices. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists and learn how to structure their own IMOM Local event. Expert panelists include:
- Dr. Jason Niegsch, Ames, who hosts a free clinic for veterans on Veterans Day each year.
- Dr. Eric Forsberg, Altoona, host of the annual Smiles From the Heart event providing free care to nearly 50 patients.
- Dr. Megan Timm, Williamsburg, who hosted her office's first Smiles for a Cause clinic just weeks after learning of the cancellation of IMOM in 2020.
IDF will highlight the resources and tools available to help plan, promote, and host your free clinic. In addition, Becki Brommel with Dorsey and Whitney Law Firm and Sue McFadden with McFadden Insurance Services will address your legal and liability concerns.
Attendees are encouraged to submit questions in advance when registering or to the IDF staff
. We hope you can join us next month for this informative and interactive discussion!
