Iowa Practice Opportunity Fair

A great way to recruit a new dentist to a community, to seek an associate, or to sell a practice is to meet with students face-to-face. The Office of Iowa Practice Opportunities (OIPO) presents the chance to do so at the Iowa Practice Opportunity Fair.  2013 oipo fairThis event is held once a year and is hosted by the OIPO. Participation is open to Iowa practices and communities.

The 2016 Iowa Practice Opportunity Fair will be held on Thursday, September 29, 2016 at the Radisson Hotel (formerly Holiday Inn and Conference Center) in Coralville from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.  Set-up begins at 3:00 pm and is to be finished no later than 4:30 pm.

The fair will be held in conjunction with the Iowa American Student Dental Association's (IASDA) annual Exhibitor Fair.  This is an ideal time for recruiting students to a community, displaying photographs of offices and communities, listing community activities, addressing financing (if available) or discussing any other attributes that are notable.
