Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of organized dentistry. Being a member of the IDA ensures that your voice and the needs of the profession are being represented on every level. The IDA’s broad membership reflects a unique commitment by dentists to work together to enhance their profession and work on behalf of their patients and all Iowans. 

The American Dental Association, the Iowa Dental Association, and your local dental society in Iowa have a tripartite membership structure. This means that when you join the IDA, you also join the ADA and your local district. Membership runs on a calendar year, but you may join at any time throughout the year. Newly graduated dental students receive dues discounts for the first two years out of dental school.
