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.

Des Moines District Hosts Local Legislators During 9th Annual Dinner

On September 2, the Des Moines District hosted legislators from the Des Moines area for the 9th Annual Dinner for Central Iowa Legislators, Dentists, and Dental Specialists. West Des Moines pediatric dentist Dr. Rachael Revell presented "Increasing Access to Quality Oral Healthcare" focusing on the importance of increasing Medicaid reimbursement rates to increase access for patients in desperate need of dental care. Legislators were receptive to the presentation, vocalizing the need to address low dental reimbursement rates from Medicaid in Iowa.
In total, the dinner hosted 20 dentists and their guests with six legislators, including:
  • Representative Brooke Boden; Indianola, HD26
  • Senator Claire Celsi; West Des Moines, SD21
  • Representative John Forbes; Urbandale, HD40
  • Representative Garrett Gobble; Ankeny, HD38
  • Representative Brian Lohse; Bondurant, HD30
  • Senator Brad Zaun; Urbandale, SD20
Meeting with legislators is a critical component of advocacy. Please consider working with your district to host a similar legislative gathering in the future, or become a key contact today!
