Iowa Practice Opportunity Fair

2013 oipo fairA 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. This event is held once a year and is hosted by the OIPO. Participation is open to Iowa practices and communities.

The 2019 Iowa Practice Opportunity Fair will be held on Thursday, October 10, 2019 at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center (formerly Holiday Inn and Conference Center) in Coralville from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm.  Set-up begins at 3:30 pm and is to be finished no later than 5:00 pm.

2013 fair displayThe 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.
