Phone Scam Involving the Iowa Dental Board

The Iowa Dental Board has been made aware of recent phone calls to licensees from an individual impersonating a Board investigator or staff member.  The call was made from a spoofed phone line that appeared to originate from the Board office.  

Please be advised that the Board would never call a dental office and demand money or use other high pressure tactics to obtain information.  A legitimate Board investigation is conducted through a formal process, which includes notification of a pending investigation and an opportunity to respond to any allegation.  If you are ever unsure about a phone call regarding business with our office, please hang up and call the Board office directly at 515-281-5157.
