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.

IDA Leaders Advocate for Medicaid Increase


IDA President Dr. Zach Kouri and IDA Medicaid Committee Chair Dr. Sara Stuefen recently met with Governor Reynolds to discuss a variety of issues important to Iowa dentists, including the IDA’s legislative priority to increase dental Medicaid reimbursement rates. While this meeting was informal, both Drs. Kouri and Stuefen were able to speak on their experiences with Medicaid and highlight why the program rates need to be increased.

For your reference, the IDA developed "The Impact of a Smile" photo sheet displaying different oral health issues Iowa Medicaid patients are facing. Feel free to share this photo sheet when speaking with your legislators as we continue building momentum heading into the 2022 legislative session beginning January 10.
On Tuesday, January 11 at 6:00 PM, Governor Reynolds will deliver her annual Condition of the State Address at the Statehouse, laying out her priorities for the 2022 legislative session. This address will be livestreamed on Iowa PBS and through the Governor’s Facebook page.
