Abstract

Dentists in Iowa are not evenly distributed across the state. The population to dentist ratio in Iowa’s counties range from 885:1 in Johnson County to 9133:1 in Palo Alto County. In 2015, a total of 10 Iowa counties had population to dentist ratios greater than 5000:1. This uneven distribution has resulted in certain areas of Iowa being designated as dental Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs).
