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's Wellness Coffee Talks - Your Gateway to Connection and Support
Navigating the challenges of a demanding dental profession can sometimes leave little room for looking after yourself. That is why we've created Wellness Coffee Talks, a space where you can connect with a community of like-minded dentists right here in Iowa who understand your unique journey! These sessions provide a unique opportunity to mingle and connect with other Iowa dentists who share your goals and understand the struggles you face.
"At times our thoughts or feelings may become uncomfortable. Working through those thoughts with others who share self-awareness and similar goals in life can be a huge relief."
- Dr. Shawn Kerby, IDA Wellness Committee Member
Space is limited, so register today to take advantage of this opportunity to enhance your well-being, forge new connections, and find the support you need! Join us for our next Wellness Coffee Talk on Wednesday, November 1 at 5:30 PM via Zoom. We look forward to seeing you!
