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.

McKenna Woodward Awarded IDF Scholarship

Woodward_McKenna
The Iowa Dental Foundation (IDF) awarded eight scholarships this year, including five to dental students at the University of Iowa, two to dental hygiene students, and one to a dental assistant student. IDF is proud to spotlight dental student McKenna Woodward this week.
 
"As a first-generation college student, I had no idea what kind of training was required of a dentist," McKenna says. "And now, after seven years of college, I have learned so much about the science and art behind dentistry from the countless mentors I’ve worked alongside, but more importantly, I have been immensely impacted by the patients I am able to treat on a daily basis. It is the most rewarding feeling to alleviate a patient’s pain, restore their smile, or help them get insured so they can afford comprehensive dental care."
 
After dental school, McKenna hopes to serve underserved populations as a general dentist in Iowa.
 
Learn more about McKenna and all the 2021 scholarship recipients on the IDF website, and please join us in congratulating these deserving students on their achievements.
