IDA Immediate Past President Dr. Ryan Stuntz was recently featured in a profile from U.S. News & World Report
for his leadership of IDA during the pandemic. Dr. Stuntz shared how dentists voluntarily closed practices to nonemergency care prior to the state mandate and how Iowa dentists were quick to adjust to new protocols and procedures to ensure patient safety and get back to work. During his tenure as president, Dr. Stuntz moderated numerous virtual townhalls for members that helped address many questions and concerns, and he also chaired IDA's task force to reopen dental offices safely. We thank Dr. Stuntz for his leadership during this challenging time.
