As the aging population of dentists in Iowa retires and communities are unable to find new dentists to take over their practices, more small Iowa communities will lack easy access to oral health care.

The College of Dentistry and Dental Clinics is in a unique position to help coordinate matching Iowa practice opportunities with dental students, residents and practice sites. The Office of Iowa Practice Opportunities was established in 2007 to promote dental practice opportunities in Iowa and serve as a free resource to any Iowa community, student, or practitioner.
