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.

Iowa Dental Board Shares Continuing Education Update

Last week the Iowa Dental Board (IDB) released an update to the CPR and continuing education requirements for the 2022 and 2023 renewal cycles. As a reminder, effective January 1 of this year, CPR certification courses require a hands-on component. However, the hands-on training can be completed on a manikin with feedback from an instructor or other technology and does not need to be completed in person. Waivers allowing for an up to six month extension to complete this requirement are available online. Online-only certifications completed between March 2020 and December 31, 2021, will be accepted for renewal until the certification expires.
Dentists must complete 30 hours of continuing education between September 1, 2020, and August 31, 2022, with up to 18 self-study hours accepted.

IDA is an approved continuing education sponsor by the IDB. Visit the IDA Annual Session website to learn more about joining us to earn up to 19.5 CEUs April 28-30 in Des Moines.
