Iowa Dental Board Temporary Licenses for Dentists and Dental Hygienists

Pursuant to Section Thirteen of the Proclamation of Disaster Emergency issued by Governor Kim Reynolds on April 24, 2020, the Iowa Dental Board is authorized to issue temporary licenses to dentists.  To be eligible for a temporary dentist license, the applicant:

  • Must not have previously failed a clinical examination; and
  • Must submit a completed license application on or before September 30, 2020.

Practicing under a Temporary License

  • A dental hygienist may only perform hygiene services under the direct or personal supervision of a dentist; public health supervision is not permitted.
  • A dentist or dental hygienist shall display the Board-issued license renewal card that indicates the license is a temporary license, which will satisfy the requirement in 650 IAC 10.2.

Duration of Temporary License

A temporary license will automatically terminate upon the earliest of either of the following:

  • Receiving a failing score on a clinical examination; or
