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.

U.S. House Passes Budget Bill Excluding Medicare Dental Benefit

On November 19, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Budget Reconciliation Bill, also known as the “Build Back Better” package, without the inclusion of a Medicare Part B dental benefit.
